The Peoples Democratic Party on Thursday told President Muhammadu Buhari that he would not get the support of the South-East in his re-election bid.
The PDP National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan in a statement also said Buhari would lose the 2019 presidential election.
According to him, the President and the All Progressives Congress have been jittery since the South-East and other geo-political zones expressed their readiness to support the PDP’s presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar in the election.
Ologbondiyan said, “Instead of accepting his failure, which is manifest to all, Buhari, who is reputed for not fulfilling campaign promises, is busy making a fresh list of fake promises to Nigerians.
“In this desperation, Mr. President fails to understand that the people of the South-East, just like other Nigerians, are too sophisticated to fall for false promises and ethnic politics, and as such cannot be swayed in their resolve to support Atiku Abubakar to rescue our nation from the shackles of misrule.
“Nigerians have since seen through Buhari’s bouquet of failures and fake promises, which in any case, cannot heal the wounds of marginalisation, nepotism, disregard for the federal character principle and harsh economic policies, including obnoxious foreign exchange regulations and heavy taxation of his administration, which are killing businesses and plunging families into extreme poverty.”
