“We have come to consult our leader — to consult somebody who has presided over the affairs of this country, not just as a president, but also as a former military head of state,” he said.
“The kind of experience he had and the passion he has for this country, coupled with his continuous preaching on unity and peace, is something to be emulated.
“This country requires somebody who has the courage; somebody who can take a firm decision and somebody who wants to unite Nigerians and that is what we think that we should do.”
