- Adetimehin who predicted a landslide victory for the APC candidate said that the south-west was a stronghold of the progressives
- The chairman said the Peoples Democratic Party would come a distant second in the presidential poll
President Muhammadu Buhari has been tipped to win in the southwest in the 2019 presidential election.This is according to the chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ondo state, Mr Ade Adetimehin.
Adetimehin who predicted a landslide victory for the APC candidate said that the southwest is a stronghold of the progressives.
According to him, the Peoples Democratic Party would come a distant second in the presidential poll.
“The south-west cannot be taken for a ride by those who are seeking to return to power by all means. The people of the zone have integrity and that integrity is called Omoluabi, and as it is now, the APC in firm control of all the states in Yorubaland. So, with this now, President Muhammadu Buhari will come top in all the six states and the candidate that will follow him will come a distant second, maybe the PDP’s candidate.
“President Buhari will win in the South-West and he will also win in other geopolitical zones and will be the eventual winner of the election. Buhari won in the South-West in 2015 and whatever they believe in, nobody can change it. Ondo State is for Buhari and the entire South-West is for him as well,” he said.
However, Diran Odeyemi, deputy national publicity secretary of the PDP, said that the Yoruba would show Buhari through their votes that they were truly angry with him.
“Whoever is saying Buhari will win in the south-west is day dreaming and would soon wake up to the reality on the ground after the election. The people are hungry and angry and this is the worst Christmas they have celebrated.
“Alhaji Atiku Abubakar is well known to the people in this geopolitical zone and they also know him that he is a liberal person with capacity to run the affairs of the country much better than how the cabal is doing now.
“There is no way the APC can win in the southwest. Everybody knows what they did in the two governorship elections held in the South-West this year. If they are prevented from rigging, they will lose woefully.”
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had reported that the presidency on Wednesday, December 26, in Abuja advised the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) against making President Muhammadu Buhari’s family an issue in the forthcoming 2019 general elections.
The senior special assistant to the president on media and publicity, Malam Garba Shehu, who gave the advice in an interaction with State House correspondents, said the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) would gladly accept the challenge if the PDP failed to adhere to the advice.
