The Katsina State Elders Forum will soon reply former President Olusegun Obasanjo’s letter asking President Muhammadu Buhari not to seek re-election.

The elders took the decision during a meeting with Buhari on Sunday. The meeting took place in Daura, hometown of Buhari.

“The elders forum will consider the possibility of replying the recent letter by President Olusegun Obasanjo to Buhari,” Aminu Masari, governor of Katsina, told journalist on Sunday.

“We intend to place an advertorial in the national dailies to respond to the issues he raised.”

But Masari, who did not state the views of the elders on the issues raised by Obasanjo, said that the forum had studied the letter and would respond to its contents.

“The response will not be long in coming; it will be very soon,” he said.

Masari said the elders were in Daura to condole Buhari over the death of his two sisters – Aisha Mamman and Halima Dauda.

He described their demise as “very saddening”.

“We came to formally commiserate with the president and also pray for the repose of the souls of the deceased,” he said.

“We also told the president to accept the development as destined by the Almighty.”

Obasanjo had said Buhari failed to deliver on the promises he made to Nigerians. He asked the president to retire from active public service.
