Second Republic lawmaker and northern elder statesman, Dr. Junaid Mohammed, has reacted to the Saturday’s Osun State election, which was declared inconclusive by independent National Electoral Commission, INEC.
Juniad in a terse statement said the Osun election showed that the APC-led government was no longer popular among Nigerians “because of the insecurity and economic hardship in the country.”
The former lawmaker said the Osun election was a reminiscent of what might obtain in the 2019 general elections.
The statement reads: “My belief is that the APC has become too arrogant and too reliant on corruption rather than performance to win an election.
“There is a trend emerging in the South-West and that is going to manifest in other parts of the country – from the South to the Middle Belt and to the North – the APC is no longer the predominant party of this country.
“The ridiculous government policies and other misgivings have not given the ruling party any edge in the states. Therefore, 2019 is very open.”
