Senator Ali Modu Sheriff, chairman of the Presidential Support Committee (PSC), has stated that those who defected from the All Progressives Congress (APC) will be surprised by the outcome of the 2019 general elections.
He made the comment while receiving members of the PSC in Abuja, the nations’ capital, Daily Trust reports.
NAIJ.com gathers that Sheriff said his aim was to ensure that President Muhammadu Buhari is re-elected in 2019.
He said it was because of the love he had for the president that he refused to join issues with some persons when there was controversy over the formation of PSC and his subsequent appointment as its chairman.
He said: “My aim is to see that President Buhari is re-elected in 2019. Those who left the party made a grave mistake and I believe their exit will eventually work for the good of the party.
“Many of those who left the party will be disappointed after the election because APC will win convincingly.”
Sheriff, however, said there is need for the APC to put its house in order to be able to win the 2019 election comfortably.
