Lokoja — Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi State has expressed confidence in the ability of President Muhammadu Buhari to come out victorious in 2019, saying that the real voters are behind him.
Bello, who stated this in a statement through his Director General on Media and Publicity, Kingsley Fanwo, said Buhari remained the most popular political figure among the masses of Nigeria.
"Two classes determine the electoral success of any candidate in Nigeria - the powerful elite and the masses. In 2015, the masses took over by trooping to the polling units massively to elect Africa's most popular and most trusted political figure, President Buhari.
"Many of us who supported him actually supported his incorruptible and disciplined personality. I founded the Kogi Youth Arise Group with like minds to ensure the victory of the president in Kogi State. President Buhari is a phenomenal leader who truly loves Nigeria," the statement read.
According to the governor, "there is a deliberate choice of the opposition to promote falsehood and generate misinformation to railroad their ways into power in 2019."
He said the APC as a big family would remain united to continue to serve Nigeria beyond 2019.
