Femi Adesina who is President Buhari’s Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, has stated that those making unverifiable statements against the President are the minority few who do not like the anti-graft battle, who will get their greatest shock in 2019.
Femi Adesina who spoke during a visit PMParrot in Ibadan, said in 2019, Nigerians will vote for President Buhari for different, including his gesture towards late Chief Moshood Kashimawo Olawale Abiola’s struggle for recognition.
“Many of those making unverifiable statements against Mr President are the minority few who do not like the anti-graft battle the President is waging. They are few but they are loud” he said.
He added that,“but the greatest shock of their lives is waiting for them in 2019 because Nigerians will vote massively for Buhari. Those who will vote will have their reasons. Those who will vote him because of the rail-lines he is building around Nigeria will vote him, those who will vote him because he is successfully prosecuting the anti-graft war will vote him, those who will vote for him because he is fair as an administrator will vote for him. For example, his gesture towards late Chief Moshood Kashimawo Olawale Abiola’s struggle for recognition. We can go on and on.”
This is coming after the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, accused Bauchi State Government and All Progressive Congress, APC, of rigging weekend’s Bauchi South senatorial by-election, vowing to challenge the result in court.
Speaking to newsmen yesterday, State Chairman of the party, Alhaji Hamza Akuyam, flanked by the party flag bearer, Ladan Saliu, described the election as the worst in the history of democratic elections. Recall that the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, declared the APC candidate, Lawal Gumau as the winner of last Saturday senatorial by-election, having polled 119,489 votes to defeat the PDP candi-date, who polled 50,256.
