Alhaji Lai Mohammed, the Minister for Information and Culture, has said the All Progressives Congress (APC) would win the 2019 general elections as there is no viable opposition to the party. The minister stated this while fielding questions from newsmen in Benin on Saturday where he chaired the wedding of the son of Edo Commissioner for Budget and Economy Planning, Hajia Mariam Abubakar.
He said the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), that would have provided a “kind of opposition” is in disarray. He attributed the reason the APC would win the elections to its performance in the last three years. Mohammed also stated that the ruling party is not in the least threatened by the noise of the PDP. “I don’t see fear any opposition in the elections. The opposition is in disarray.
“We believe that the people will vote for performance and to that, we are very confident; government has not stopped working. We will continue to work for Nigerians to see. “Basically, I don’t see any opposition from the PDP, it is a section of the media that has constituted itself to the opposition party,” he said.
