Registered voters figures favour Buhari
The Presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and incumbent President, Muhammadu Buhari, will win the 2019 Presidential election, despite the support being given to his main rival, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar by former Nigerian President, Olusegun Obasanjo.
A stalwart of the APC, Mr R.O. Kazeem stated this in a chat with The Hope in Ikare Akoko.
Kazeem who is the chairman of the National Anti Doping Agency said with the release of the statistical data of the total number of registered voters in all the geo political zones of the country by INEC, it showed that Buhari is having the upper hand.
“INEC has just released the data of the total registered voters in Nigeria. The Northwest which is the home of Buhari is leading with a whopping 20 million voters while the base of Atiku which is the Northeast is having only 11million registered voters, tell me if this is anything to go by, I think Buhari is already having a plus to his credit”
“Again come to the Southwest, Lagos State is having more registered voters than any of her counterparts and Asiwaju Bola Tinubu is in firm control there. The victory of Buhari is also sure in this place”.
” Then come to Ondo State, the Governor, Arakunrin Oluwarotimi Akeredolu has donated buses to the Buhari/Osibanjo Campaign group. This is an indication that the governor is not relenting in the reelection of President Buhari and even, Okorocha who is not happy with the outcome of the governorship primaries in his state has continued to work for the reelection of the president, so with this, victory is sure for him”.
He posited that winning election is not about the noise and propaganda in the newspapers or in the electronic or social media.
“Winning election is not all about the noise on the radio or television. It is not about the amount of noise you make in the newspapers. It is not also the amount of fake news you spread on the social media or the acclaimed votes you get on the walls of Facebook users. It is about the reality on ground and that reality favours Buhari”.
On support of former President Olusegun Obasanjo to the PDP candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, Kazeem said this will not stop the APC from winning.
According to him, the support of Obasanjo will not carry the PDP candidate far.
The lawyer and Akoko community leader declared that the former president cannot control the whole of the Southwest, Ogun State inclusive, not to talk of the entire country.
He therefore sees Buhari as a political party himself and that he is loved by people across all political parties and this will further boost his victory in the election.
