Buhari is APC’s only choice in 2019 – APC Chieftain

 A chieftain of the 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)
