Some eminent politicians especially from the north have indicated interest to take over from President Muhammadu Buhari in 2019.

Here is a list of seven Nigerians who have indicated interest to contest in the upcoming 2019 Presidential election and possible dislodge President Muhammadu Buhari from his current position.

Here are seven of those according to GISTMANIA report.....

1. Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso

GISTMANIA attended a ‘Kwankwasiyya’ event in Lagos last year where this former Governor of Kano State made it clear he’ll be throwing his red cap into the presidential ring one more time.
Kwankwaso has been weighing his options as it pertains to which political party to pitch tent with. At the moment, he remains an unsettled member of the governing APC.
He has also been building his grassroot Kwankwasiyya political movement across the States with renewed vigour.
Expect Kwankwaso’s presidential declaration soonest.

2. Ibrahim Dankwambo

That Gombe State Governor, Ibrahim Hassan Dankwambo, is being readied for a presidential run by the northern elite, is perhaps the worst kept secret in the land.
Pundits have also scored him high on governance in his State.
Dankwambo has been dropping sufficient hints to suggest he’s seriously considering a run.
At just 55 years of age, his ‘youth’ appeal sits pretty well with a few folks and kingmakers.

3. Sule Lamido

Former Jigawa Governor Lamido has told everyone who cares to listen that he’ll be Nigeria’s next president, although it doesn’t help his cause that the EFCC has been haunting him and his sons for a while now.
Lamido has been traveling the country to set up campaign offices as he readies self for the big announcement.

4. Pastor Tunde Bakare

He wouldn’t say what year God has told him to run, but he’s commenced his campaign already, dropping God’s name at every opportunity.
Blessed with an oratorical prowess, Bakare has been aiming darts at his friend President Buhari, time and again; while setting out his campaign stall pretty nicely, one television appearance at a time.

5. Atiku Abubakar

He dumped the APC for the PDP because he wants to be president so bad.
Atiku’s presidential declaration is now only a matter of when.
Nigeria’s former Vice President has been holding consultative talks daily while assembling a campaign structure to do the business.
Expect his formal declaration before the end of first quarter of 2018.

6. Fela Durotoye

A sweet talking motivational speaker with sartorial flair to boot, Durotoye has already announced his desire to be president of Nigeria if the “powers that be” let him.
He’s got his work cut out, though.

7. Donald Duke

Gave a good account of himself as Governor of Cross River State from 1999 to 2007.
His biggest handicap could be the lack of a political structure, base and platform to call his own.
Duke looks the part and fits into the prototype of a modern day, urbane presidential candidate. However, good looks don’t win you the presidency in Nigeria.
It’s almost as though he went to sleep after the PDP denied him the presidency in 2007.
