The politician expressed the hope that the next four years will be prosperous for the APC as it emerges victorious in the general election.

Meanwhile, as Nigerians prepare for the 2019 general elections, the vice presidential candidate of Grassroots Democratic Party of Nigeria (GDPN), Alhaji Ibrahim Modibbo, has dumped the party's presidential candidate and GDPN for President Muhammadu Buhari and the All Progressives Congress (APC).

Leadership reports that Modibbo declared his support for Buhari and the ruling party in Abuja on Tuesday, February 12.

Legit.ng gathers that the vice presidential candidate said his reason for supporting Buhari was because of the president's performance since taking over mantle of leadership in 2015.
