The Deputy National Coordinator of the Buhari Campaign Organisation, BCO, Otunba Tunji Omoregha, has highlighted reasons the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar can’t defeat President Muhammadu Buhari in 2019.
Omoregha said Buhari’s government had progressively taken Nigeria to the next phase of development by embarking on strategic projects across various sectors of the economy.
Addressing journalists in Lagos, he said on the terms of good governance, Buhari will win convincingly.
Omoregha said: “We understand how the polity works and we intend to leverage on our strengths across the country. The President has shown character as a leader who can deliver.
“For instance, the Nigerian economy is back and is on the path of growth after the recession of 2016-17.
“The Buhari administration’s priority sectors of agriculture and solid minerals maintained consistent growth throughout the recession.
“Economic Recovery and Growth Plan (ERGP), which was launched by Mr Buhari in April 2017, has stabilised the macroeconomic environment; achieved agricultural and food security and has also ensured energy efficiency especially in power and petroleum products.
“The government has drastically reduced insurgency in the north by equipping the Military. These and many more are facts the opposition has to contend with in the cause of the coming campaigns. Our duty as party stalwarts is to support the laudable vision of the President and ensure continuity.”
Omoregha acknowledged that “Abubakar was a threat” but insisted that the APC will win in 2019.
Also responding to comments about the quest for restructuring, Omoregha described those flying the kite as deceptive, saying if they had been serious and sincere about it, “why didn’t they do it in the whole of 16 years in power.”
