The Nigerian presidency, on Tuesday, August 14, declared that Muhammadu Buhari will contest the 2019 presidential election and win even in the face of the campaign of calumny by a vocal minority pushing its agenda against the country’s leader.
The position was made by presidential spokesperson, Femi Adesina, who also cited landmark infrastructural developments across the country completed by President Buhari.
Adesina further cited the recent election victories by the All Progressives Congress (APC) as evidence of his potentials ahead of the 2019 election.
Vanguard reports that Adesina spoke in Lagos at a session with media men declaring that President Buhari would win with a wide margin.
“No matter the level of hatred and fake news, what will happen in 2019 will happen. And what is that thing that will happen?
“President Buhari will win the election by a very wide margin compared to 2015.
“Those speaking against the president are a vocal minority, but they have voice and when they speak, there is a cacophony and you will think that it is Nigerians that are speaking.
“If it is just for the rail projects alone, some people say they will vote for Buhari.

“Others say that if it is just for the honour done to Chief MKO Abiola, they will vote for Buhari, while there are those who say that if it is that people can now sleep with their eyes closed in the north east, they will vote for the president.
“Different people have different reasons why they will vote for President Buhari," he said.
