What Nigeria May Have Become Had 74 Year Old Buhari Died

There was confusion during the weekend when rumour of President Buhari's death was all over the social media. The report had it that he had died in a London Hospital where he was being treated for an unknown ailment.
Shortly after the death rumour filled the air wave,  SSA to the president Garba Shehu debunked the rumour saying the president was alive and healthy supporting his claim with the picture below which shows the president relaxing and watching Channels TV in the UK.

The news of the president death came shortly after he announced his 14-day vacation which is to enable him seek medical attention in the UK, reports. Latest report says the President is hale and hearty.

Be that as it may, I really do not subscribe to the idea of wishing one dead as death is inevitable. All souls will taste death but have you imagine if the death rumour was true, what would be the defining moment in Nigeria? did a nice report on what the defining moments would be if the President had died.
Below are some of the things highlighted;
Impotent Anti-corruption fight:
If President Muhammadu Buhari had eventually died, the Federal Government’s fight against corruption will drastically become fruitless. The country will return to the run-of-the-mill days where influential personalities cannot be prosecuted for money laundering, mismanagement of public funds, among others.
The Indeginous People of Biafra (IPOB) and the Movement for the Actualization of the Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB) would be glad if President Muhammadu Buhari dies, as his death would open way for the actualization of their agitation. However, this would definitely be done through the use of force which would lead to killing of innocent countrymen and women.
MASSOB agitates for a Republic of Biafra comprising the South-East and South-South regions of Nigeria.

Remaining Chibok Girls May Never Return:
President Muhammadu Buhari’s antecedents have proved beyond reasonable doubts that the abduction of Chibok schoolgirls by Boko Haram is of greater priority to the President than any other national issue.
The successes recorded in the fight against insurgency by this regime have been impressive, a prove that Buhari-led Government is passionate about the release of these Schoolgirls. On a contrary, the remaining Chibok girls may never return if the President had died.
