The north west zonal office of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) says the visit of the presidential candidate of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Alhaji Atiku Abubakar to the United State of America (USA) as ‘an exercise in futility.’
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Alhaji Abdulmanaf Mohammed-Daura, the zonal organising secretary of the APC, made the declaration in an interview in Daura on Sunday, January 20.
Mohammed-Daura said the visit would not add any political value to the PDP presidential candidate or stop President Muhammadu Buhari from winning the presidential election with wide margin.
He argued that about 85 percent of the electorate are solidly in support of the re-election Buhari because of his administration’s considerable gains in critical sectors of the national economy.
“Our voters are Nigerians not Americans and are ready to give another mandate to the president,” he said while expressing optimism that the APC would record overwhelming victory across the 36 states in Nigeria, because “our party has impacted positively nationwide.”
The politician said the Buhari administration has inaugurated the Baro Inland Water Port in Niger that would generate massive employment and revenue.
The report quoted him as describing the federal government efforts at transforming infrastructure and agricultural as unprecedented, adding: “Many federal roads are being rehabilitated, rail lines reconstructed and security has been maximally restored.”
Mohammed-Daura who doubles as the Katsina state coordinator of the National Committee for Buhari Support Group, assured that the state would provide two million votes for Buhari and Governor Masari in the general elections.
According to him, the party has mapped out strategies towards achieving the projected number of votes through aggressive mobilisation and sensitisation of voters as well as highlighting projects executed and plans for the future.

He said Governor Masari had changed the pattern of governance in Katsina state through his open door policy, accountability and transparency.
He further noted that the administration had made an indelible mark in the critical sectors of the economy especially youth empowerment, agriculture, security, health and road construction.
He pleaded with the electorate to be law-abiding before, during and after the forthcoming general elections, stressing as there are existing laws to punish perpetrators of electoral violence or malpractice.
