Buhari is APC’s only choice in 2019 – party chieftain

By Emmanuel Mogbede

Abuja –   A chieftain of All Progressives Congress (APC), Mr Preye Aganaba, has said that the party has no choice than to represent President Muhammadu Buhari to Nigerians for re-election in 2019.

Aganaba, who was a Senatorial candidate on the platform of the party in the 2015 election in Bayelsa, stated this while speaking with newsmen on Thursday in Abuja.

According to him, the Buhari-led Federal Government is doing well to fix the country’s economy, and to this end, he should be re-elected in 2019.

He added that electricity generation in the country had remarkably improved, while prices of food items and other essentials were also reducing.

“I am not bothered about the economy because that will be fixed; for me, I’m looking at the politics of various zones, because that will determine our winning the election,’’ Aganaba said.

He expressed optimism that with Buhari as APC candidate in 2019 in spite of his perceived health condition, the party would win the general elections, including presidential.

‘’I don’t think the president is terminally ill; like every other human being, he fell sick. The difference here is that he is the president, so you begin to hear stories.

‘’But he is back; I saw him yesterday and he is looking very fresh, at least, he rested very well in Daura,’’ he said.

Aganaba said that APC leadership had the ability to resolve crisis at different levels of the party ahead of the 2019 general elections.

On the report credited to Minister of Women Affairs, Sen. Aisha Alhassan, where she expressed her loyalty to the former Vice President Atiku Abubakar, he said that she had a right to her choice.

‘’She has a right to her choice, but I think she is not being fair; if she wants to make such public statement as a serving minister, she should resign her appointment,’’ he said.

The minister had in a BBC Hausa Service interview said that she would support the former vice president if he decided to contest for the presidency in 2019. (NAN)
