2019 presidential elections: Buhari makes last minute u-turn, steps down from race

The presidential candidate of the Sustainable Development Party (SDP) Ahmed Buhari has shocked his followers by backing out of the presidential race.

Buhari quit his part to join the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) drumming support for its presidential candidate Muhammadu Buhari.

Ahmed Buhari who joined the APC last week stepped down from the race because he believes that president Buhari is the right man for the job.

In an interview with SUNRISE daily, he noted that the Buhari government has also made some gains in the last four years it came on board in the country.

In addition, he accused Nigerian youths of not backing a young person for the presidency.

This is as he rued his lack of resources to compete with the APC and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
