The speaker of Plateau state House of Assembly, Joshua Madaki, on Wednesday, August 15, declared that President Muhammadu Buhari and Governor Simon Lalong will emerge as winners in 2019 general elections.
Daily Trust reports that Madaki made this known while addressing the All Progressives Congress (APC) supporters during their solidarity rally for Ibrahim Baba Hassan, a member representing Jos north north constituency at the state House of Assembly.
According to him, "As far as Plateau state is concerned we don't have any political party apart from the All Progressive Congress, and we are ready to vote massively again for President Muhammadu Buhari and Governor Lalong, we are happy with those defecting to other parties we don't know because they were a problem for us in APC."
Member representing Jos north north, and the former deputy speaker, Ibrahim Baba Hassan promised to continue enacting bills and laws that would promote good governance.
Hassan who was the longest serving member in the state's assembly also expressed his happiness because of the ability to bring unity amongst all the tribes in his constituency.
Also, the APC supporters from Jos north local government in their hundreds passed a vote of confidence on President Buhari and Governor Lalong ahead of the election.
Meanwhile, NAIJ.com had reported that Senate president, Bukola Saraki, was said to be considering running against President Buhari in the 2019 general elections.
Saraki said in an interview at his residence in Abuja: "I am consulting and actively considering it. I believe I can make the change. “The PDP has learnt its lesson from the loss in 2015, and I think unfortunately the APC did not learn from their victory.
"We have the opportunity with the right kind of presidential candidate and president to provide the leadership for the party. The party has a good opportunity to lead the country in the right direction.”
