Why Buhari Is Likely To Win In 2019 By Yakubu Jimoh

By Yakubu Jimoh
This piece is a personal opinion of mine, and my intention
is not to praise or criticise one party or another.

Recently, South East leaders visited President Muhammadu
Buhari, endorsing him for a second term and promised to
deliver the 5 states in their zone to him. APC is currently
ruling one of the 5 states in the East. It is clearly known
to many people that Anambra and Ebonyi Governor
despite being in opposition parties have openly endorsed
the President for a 2nd Term. APC will clearly and easily
win Anambra, Imo and Ebonyi State by 2019. APC has
already shown its strength in the gubernatorial election
done there last year, claiming 2nd position in the election.

APC is clearly promising them the presidential slot by
2023. Remember, if PDP or any other political party
emerges today, the party will surely go for 8 Years. It is
clearly known that any party that might want to stand
against APC come 2019 will field a candidate from the
North. Igbo will not a mistake by not supporting Buhari so
as to give them the presidency they have longing for since
1999.

Another clear reason is that Asiwaju Bola Tinubu and Chief
Bisi Akande still support and clearly show they are still in
the APC. Some people are claiming Chief Bola Tinubu
might go to bring up Alliance for Democracy (AD). Baba
Tinubu can’t be so foolish to weaken the party he has
been supporting and bringing up since 1999, Jagaban will
surely deliver 80% of South West since the Vice President
is still coming from their side.
The vote from the Northern bloc will surely give Buhari an
upper hand in the upcoming election, The Northerners
have one culture and thing they do, which other tribes
don’t take serious in Nigeria; when election is a week
ahead most of Hausa-Fulanis will go back to the states
where they have the voters cards to vote. Tell me, how
many Igbo or Yoruba can leave his abode to go his
homeland to vote because of election, many don’t. The
Northerners will leave their business and farms to decide
who will lead this nation for another 4 years, they have
been doing it since 1999 and they will still be doing it.
APC should have up to 30% in the Niger Delta region due
to Governor Obaseki and other prominent people from the
region.

President Buhari has really tried in the agricultural sector
and improved it and is working to diversify the nation’s
economy and wean it off its reliance on petroleum. He
has clearly shown he is a democrat and has integrity in
terms of elections. Since he has been sworn in, various
elections have been conducted where he didn’t do like
other presidents who will impose their party in the election
by rigging. I believe it will be difficult for any party to
dethrone this present ruling party, the APC.

Don’t be deceived by those social media politicians
whereby 80% of those voting on social media don’t have
voters card, or won’t go out on election day. Meanwhile,
those in the North will go out to defend their votes. Our
market women, farmers, are not on social media,
according to a recent survey. Majority of the voters are
not on social media, so don’t be deceived by that.
