The Chairman, Council of Ulama of Jama’atu Izalatul Bidi’ah Wa Iqamatus Sunnah (JIBWIS), Sheik Sani Yahaya Jingir, has advocated for a fresh election in the event of death or incapacitation of a Nigerian President.

He said that the present arrangement as contained in the Nigerian Constitution where the vice president takes over, leaves much to be desired.

Jingir made the call in Bauchi at the matriculation of the students of Sunnah College Bauchi ‎which took place on Sunday.

He added that the present arrangement has opened an avenue where the president is exposed to uncertainty while his vice ‎is confident of becoming president whether Nigerians like him or not.

“If this arrangement is maintained as it is, it will pose a lot of political uncertainties and security threat to us as a nation.‎ we elected the President as the President. If he dies or incapacitated, there should be a fresh election.

“If this anomaly is not addressed, then we are not secured because a dishonest Vice President may work against him to get his seat. Is the right to personal opinion guaranteed in our constitution? Then this is my personal opinion,” he said.

He also faulted the arrangement where all the 36 states produce three senators each regardless of their land mass and population which he said has placed the bigger and populated states at a disadvantage. (Daily Trust)
