A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Bayelsa State, Chief Preye Aganaba, has bragged about the chances of President Muhammadu Buhari to win elections for a second term in office in 2019.
According to him, Nigerians will be looking at performance of the Party in making a decision in 2019, and Buhari has done exceptionally well in office.
In an interview with Leadership newspaper, Aganaba said: “Government wise, I think we (APC) have done well, but we may not be where we ought to be and that could be because we did not know that the country was where it was when we got into power. But we have done well.
“A few days ago, the story of Nigeria getting out of recession was all over the news, the prices of basic foodstuffs is going down. I get a minimum of 20 hours light per day. I am not too bothered about the economy because its in good hands, but perhaps by the politics within the various zones. That is what will determine the outcome of the next election.
“The APC with Buhari will win that election, but to what margin is what I cannot say. We will also do well in the National Assembly elections.
“During the party presidential primary, the campaign slogan for Buhari was 12 million assured votes and I don’t think that one vote has left kitty.”
