Amaechi Sure Of Buhari’s Victory In 2019 ELection
The governor of Sokoto, Aminu Tambuwal and Kwara State, Abdulfatah Ahmed, respectively, has been claimed by Mr. Rotimi Amaechi, the Minister of Transportation, would leave the ruling All Progressives Congress.
While recating to the forth coming 2019 general election, Amaechi stated that Tambuwal has presidential ambition and that President Muhammadu Buhari would win in Sokoto, Kano and Bauchi states even if taken to the state on sickbed.
The minister while speaking with newsmen, affirmed that even though lawmakers defected from APC, the party will still win the 2019 Presidential election.
When told that the APC might be heading for a collapse considering the gale of defection in the party, the minister said, “That’s according to you. Look, you are not a politician so you can’t be commenting on what you don’t know. In fact let’s look at it. Unfortunately I don’t want to speak about this but you are putting me under pressure.
“However, no matter what you do, the Governor of Sokoto will leave naturally. He has ambition to be president. If you take a chicken to him he will still go. The same with Kwara. These are people you expect that they will leave.”
He said, “On those that defected at the House of Representatives and Senate, where do they come from? They come from areas that the President is comfortable. Do you honestly believe that the President will lose election in Sokoto? We are not God, but it’s one of his comfort zones.
“If you bring the President on a sick bed to Bauchi and Kano, he will win and he has never lost election in Bauchi. But that is a bit arrogant on our side; we should not underestimate them.
“I am not God. It is only God who can say the APC will win or not. But what is clear is that if you remove the God element, I think we are prepared to coast to victory because Nigerians will certainly reject a second looting. Nigeria can’t survive a second looting. Never!”
He said the delay by the opposition party to name its candidate for the presidential election about six months to the election would work in favour of the ruling party.
“In our time, it was clear who would be the APC candidate one year ahead of time,” he added.Copyright Naija News 2018. All rights reserved. You may only share Naija News content using our sharing buttons. Send all news and press releases to [email protected].
