Buhari’s victory a “Tsunami” and God’s will – PDP BoT Scribe

Published

on

Muhammadu-BuhariSecretary of the People’s Democratic Party’s Board of Trustees, Senator Walid Jibrin, Saturday said that no one, except God, could have stopped the All Progressives presidential candidate, Muhammadu Buhari’s victory at the March 28 presidential election.

According to the BoT Scribe, Buhari’s victory came as a ‘Tsunami’ with such terrific strength that it rubbed off on many APC contestants for various positions, especially the northern parts of the country. He urged all PDP members to accept the will of God as both power and Tsunami come from God.

Jibrin, however, said in order for PDP to emerge stronger from this setback, it is important that the party develop new strategies of bouncing back.

The BoT Secretary, who also reacted to an allegation that top members of the PDP in Nasarawa state collected huge sums of money from Governor Tanko Al-Makura in order to support his re-election, warned the Nasarawa PDP to stop peddling falsehood and start thinking of how to recapture power from APC in 2019.

He also explained that his decision to congratulate President-elect Buhari and Governor Al-Makura was to show statesmanship and patriotism as an elder statesman.

Jibrin stressed that what he did was what the President of the Senate, David Mark did when he congratulated General Buhari (retd.) and visited him.

    Fashola: If We Keep Our Promises, APC Will Retain Power In 2023Babatunde Fashola

Minister of Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola has expressed optimism that Nigerians will still vote the All Progressives Congress (APC) back to power in 2023.

Fashola, however, added that the only thing that can make Nigerians not to vote for the APC is if the party fails to fulfill its campaign promises to them.

The Minister made this remark while speaking with journalists on Monday in Abuja.

He noted that even if the promises are not 100% fulfilled but the citizens see signs of commitment and progress, other parties should forget about displacing APC in 2023.

The former Lagos State Governor added that opposition parties are not doing better than the APC, hence should not expect Nigerians to vote for them come 2023.

He said: “Some governors have joined us, from where we think we could not get voters before. To retain power in 2023, certainly if we keep our promises, people will vote for us. It is that simple, that is politics,” the former Lagos governor said.

“If you do what you say you will do, even if you don’t do hundred percent and they see that you are making progress, they will even want you to finish what you started.”
