The Presidency says Nigerians love President Muhammadu Buhari and will never abandon him.
The statement comes as the Presidency tells the main opposition party in the country, the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) to forget about winning the 2023 general elections.
The Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu made the declaration on Tuesday, while speaking to Journalists soon after observing the Eid Al -Adha prayers in Daura, Katsina State.
He said “Nigerians know too well that they would allow another party to take over in 2023.”
According to him: “the President enjoys unshakable support not only in his hometown but also across the country and it is enough for the opposition to admit that the President matters a lot for the ruling party and Nigerians in general.
“Again he constitutes a political obstacle they cannot dismantle come 2023.”
‘’We believe the PDP and other opposition parties are nursing false hopes of taking power in 2023.
“The masses will never abandon President Buhari’s leadership and the APC. I assure you that in 2023, the masses will be waiting for the President to show the way in courtesy of what he has been building for the country in terms of infrastructure and wellbeing of young people in the country, “Shehu explained.
He added that; “Nobody will take the risk by inviting another party to come and take over in 2023.”
