The Katsina State Elders Forum have revealed that it will soon reply former President Olusegun Obasanjo’s letter to President Buhari.
The elders came to this conclusion after meeting Buhari on Sunday in Daura, the hometown of the president.
Obasanjo had, in a letter few weeks ago, asked Buhari not to seek re-election in the 2019.
The Katsina elders have now said Nigerians should expect a reply soon.
“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.”
