With preparations for the 2019 Presidential elections starting to take off, the PDP have said that Buhari’s days in power are numbered and he’s sure to lose in 2019.
This statement was made by an Ex-Minister, Adeseye Ogunlewe who was speaking on PDP’s chances in the coming elections.
Ogunlewe is of the opinion that part of Buhari’s appeal was that he is a Northerner and a Muslim something which the PDP had now countered by having a Northern Muslim run as well.
He said “I see PDP back in power. APC has no change against PDP in 2019. Forget all these hype about Buhari. Nigerians’ eyes have become open, and Buhari is no longer invincible.
“Buhari was invincible in the period leading to 2015, and also in 2015 and that was why he won the election. Don’t also forget that in 2015, zone and religion played a part in the election and these two factors helped Buhari to win.”
He added, “Being a northerner, and also a Muslim, these helped Buhari in 2015. But the situation in the country today is different. Barely two years after APC took over power, Nigerians are tired already. Hunger and poverty have become companions of millions of Nigerians.
“PDP this time around has also decided to field a northerner and a Muslim as its presidential candidate, so you can say that Buhari’s days in office are numbered. APC has been a monumental failure. Buhari’s name can’t work any magic in 2019. APC has come to the end of the road.
“APC has failed Nigerians. Things are getting tough and rough daily for Nigerians and that’s why you see young men and women running away from Nigeria to Libya, and also taking the risk of crossing the Mediterranean Ocean, all because APC has failed Nigerians.”
