President Muhammadu Buhari says the performance of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the recently held bye-elections is proof that the party will win the 2019 elections.
The President who made the assertion on Friday in Daura, Katsina State, believes the ruling party will build on the victories it recorded in Ekiti, Bauchi, Katsina and Kogi states.
“Coming against the backdrop of the victory in Ekiti governorship election, the string of victories by our party, the APC, is a clear indication of the way things will go in 2019,” he was quoted as saying in a statement by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Mr Garba Shehu.
“For those who are discerning; those who have ears and eyes they will see, hear and understand. Those who don’t understand are entitled to their mistaken assumptions.”
President Buhari, who received the representatives of the 34 Chairmen of the Association of Local Governments of Nigeria (ALGON) in Katsina State, emphasised that APC’s victories in the recent polls are indeed “the sign of things to come.”
He thanked the leaders of the association for visiting him in the spirit of the season and for their message of congratulations on the performance of the party and his administration.
The President assured the group and Nigerians in general that he would continue to do his best for the nation.
Speaking on behalf of the members, the Chairman of ALGON in the state, Mr Mohammed Na’Allah, pledged their support and commitment to the success of the Buhari administration.
Meanwhile, President Buhari held a separate meeting with the leaders of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) in Katsina State.
He assured the group that he was determined to continue respecting the diversity of the country, adding that he would run a government that is fair and just to all Nigerians.
The President thanked the CAN leadership in the state for living in peace and harmony with other religious groups, and for supporting his administration in its policies and programmes
On behalf of the group, the state CAN Chairman, Reverend Nelson Onyeakachukwu, and the coordinator of Christian Pilgrimage in Katsina, Haruna Danjuma, commended the President for his performance.
They described President Buhari as a good ambassador of the state who has made the people proud.
“Christians in Katsina are happy with both Governor Masari in the state and yourself at the centre. We will continue to support both of you,” the religious leaders said.
