For boasting that he and his party, the All Progressives Congress, APC, will win the 2019 general elections, the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has told President Muhammadu Buhari that he is being deceived.
The party said in an interview by its National Chairman, Uche Secondus that the President is being deceived by people who are not familiar with the politics of their states but promising that they will deliver.
Warning that President Buhari and the APC will be shocked by the outcome of the elections, Secondus also warned the President, the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC and security agencies against rigging the elections.
According to him, Nigerians are determined to effect a positive change in the polity in 2019, and would therefore not condone any form of rigging.
It would be recalled that President Buhari had on Friday boasted that his party would win the 2019 general elections, adding that those who think otherwise cannot just see the handwriting on the wall.
The President spoke against the backdrop of the outcome of the Ekiti State governorship election and the Federal legislative bye elections conducted recently by INEC.
Reacting to the President’s assertion, Secondus said: “President Buhari is being deceived by those who are not familiar with politics of their states that they would deliver results to him.
“The President and the APC would be shocked with the level of their rejection by the electorate come 2019. Winning of elections is not about boasting. What will the President tell Nigerians that he has done for them? What will he tell workers he has done for them? What will he tell Nigerians he has done about the economy, job creation and others?
“Will Nigerians vote for someone who will not stay in the country to administer the country, but would choose to be junketing all over the world?
“We know he relies on security agencies and INEC to rig for him, but we want to assure him that the people are determined to put an end to the misery he and his government have brought to the nation.”
