Hardcore Buhari second-term proponent, Chief Adebayo Shittu has lauded the influence and charisma of the Incumbent President within the caucus of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and amongst all Nigerians as a whole.
The Oyo State-born politician who currently serves in the President Muhammadu Buhari cabinet as the Minister of Communications described the Daura-born leader as ‘a blessing to the party who is still available to do the magic he did in 2015.’
In his address to journalists, Chief Shittu alos noted that the fact that there might be a crisis in the APC does not mean much as there is still no ompetition for the party come 2019.
Here is an excerpt of his address as obtained by NIGERIA NEWS: “Currently, I don’t see any competition to APC.
“The fact that you have a crisis – even in individual homes, we have crises. That does not make that family go into extinction.
“You must appreciate that political parties are not classrooms where you have one master, one teacher who beats everybody to line. We have a party which came as a result of the agglomeration of several interests who all believed in the symbol that President Muhammadu Buhari represents.
“No other party has that symbolic leader who can be respected, who commands the followership of millions of ordinary Nigerians, and I believe all active participants in the APC appreciate that Buhari is a blessing to the party. He’s the one whose euphoria, whose whirlwind brought a lot of people into political offices in 2015 and he is still available to do the same magic there. In any case, if anybody doubts you, you want to ask them who is the alternative who can beat Buhari and which is the alternative political party which can compete with APC in 2019? ”
