Personal Assistant to President Muhammadu Buhari, Lauretta Onochie, has said that ordinary Nigerians will win the 2019 presidential election for the All Progressives Congress (APC). Onochie stated this on Twitter at the weekend. The presidential aide on social media was reacting to a quote by Kaduna State governor, Nasir Ahmad El-Rufai.
El-Rufai had said: “I have no doubt in my mind that we will win the 2019 Presidential election. We will also win our 24 States and more.” In affirmation, Onochie tweeted: “Let them hear it. There are two groups of the Nigerian people-the elites and the ordinary Nigerians. The ordinary Nigerians will win 2019 again.”
Meanwhile, Buhari has said he is expecting the membership of the APC to swell in few months’ time. He stated this in his letter to Senator Basheer Mohammed Lado who recently defected to the APC in Kano State.
