The Buhari Media Organisation hosted an event on Sunday in commencement of campaigns for the February 16, 2019 presidential election.

You can be sure that the event would be a platform to send a lot of tough words to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Nigeria’s main opposition party.

Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Mr Garba Shehu took the centerstage and declared that it is “too risky and dangerous” for power to return to the PDP in 2019.

According to him, the PDP has not shown remorse for what they had done and had not admitted their mistakes and has not taken steps to address those mistakes.

“They want to compound matters for Nigeria. It is too dangerous and risky for power to return to PDP,” Garba said.

He said President Muhammadu Buhari would win “clean and square” on the basis of the record that the administration had achieved.

“In 2015, we ran on the basis of promises, majorly insecurity, anti-corruption and repositioning of the economy on all of these three counts, he has achieved 90 per cent.

“The time has come that we are going to unfold to the nation, all achievements and Nigerians will not make the mistake of taking us back to where we were in 2015.

“This election is going to be a tough one but Buhari is going to win.

“Don’t mind the noise, don’t mind all the propaganda. Buhari will come back. He has done it before, he is doing it now. He is going to do it for the country again,” he said.

The spokesman added that the president was rebuilding the country saying this was not a time to change a president.

“He must be allowed to complete the good work he had started.

“Whatever they say, he has minimally 12 to 14 million votes coming from masses in elections. This is not going to change in 2019.

“This election will be a walk-over for him,” he said.
