Top leaders of the All Progressives Congress (APC) were said to have started expressing worries over the possibility of the party fielding a former Head of State, General Muhammadu Buhari as its presidential hopeful in the 2015 election.
Sources close to the party told the Sunday Tribune in Abuja that though Buhari is still considered as the most potent vote winner for the party, there are concerns he has started exhibiting the stress of old age.
A source said that while the General appeared strong in the face at 72, those close to him have discovered that the man is not looking younger and that he might have started showing signs of the usual old age health issues.
The source said that there are real concerns about the possibility of the General pulling through the rigours of campaigns in the 2015 election season.
A recent meeting of some top leaders of the APC, held in Abuja, was used to discuss the issue, sources confirmed.
It was learnt that the General had made trips abroad in recent times more than in the past.
