The Presidency has declared that President Muhammadu Buhari will win the 2019 election by a wide margin.
President Muhammadu Buhari’s Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, made the declaration while stressing that Nigeria can’t afford to go back to its “infamous past.”
Featuring on Channels Television, Adesina also described the 2019 Presidential election as a contest between light and darkness.
He said, “What we know is that a contest is ahead and it is going to be a contest between light and darkness, between integrity and people who have question marks; between a man whose life is plain and transparent and a man with so much opacity that you can’t say, well, this is his life, this is his background and this is how he got this and that.
“It’s going to be a fair contest and, at the end of the day, Nigerians will decide.
“Our conviction is that the party will win by a wider margin, far wider margin, than in 2015. Look around, what is the alternative? Can we afford to take the country back into the infamous past? It would be very sad. It would be quite shameful to take Nigeria back into the past.
“The best option for Nigeria is a continuity of what we have now so that it can be properly consolidated for a better future and Nigerians know it.
“The option is President Buhari to be re-elected. Our confidence is that President Buhari will win the election.”
