Presidency on Tuesday said the main opposition People’s Democratic Party should forget about winning the 2023 general elections in the country.
Senior Special Adviser to President Muhammadu Buhari on Media and Publicity, Malam Garba Shehu, stated this shortly after observing the EiD-kabir prayers in Daura, Katsina State.
Shehu said Nigerians now knew better than to allow another party to take over the reins of governance in 2023.
The presidential spokesman said, ’’The President enjoys unshakable support not only in his hometown but also across the country and it is enough for the opposition to admit that the President matters a lot for the ruling party and Nigerians in general, again he constitutes a political obstacle they cannot dismantle come 2023.
‘’We believe the PDP and other opposition parties are nursing false hopes of taking power comes 2023.
“The masses will never abandon President Buhari’s leadership and the APC. I assure you that in 2023, the masses will be waiting for the President to show the way in courtesy of what he has been building for the country in terms of infrastructure and wellbeing of young people in the country’’.
He added: “Nobody will take the risk by inviting another party to come and take over in 2023.”
