How Buhari will win in 2019 even if he loses 12 states – Senator by ibk55(m) : 11:01 am On Mar 18
Senator Domingo Obende, a chieftain of the ruling All Progressives Congress in Edo state has said that President Muhammadu Buhari will win the 2019 Elections even if he loses in 12 states.
Obende said that the APC will still retain the states they currently control. He told vanguard;
“If you go round the 24 states that the APC is controlling, they are all doing well. And if they are doing well, obviously the followers will ensure that the party wins at the polls. And when you take 24 out of 36, you have only 12 left. So if we fail in twelve states, we still would have won the presidential election.”
He went further to speak on the Cold war between the Executive and the National assembly,
“The Bible says if the foundation is destroyed, what can the righteous do? Nothing? The APC problem started with the election of the officers of the National Assembly and, since then, the party has not been at peace. Also in the National Assembly, there are a couple of lawmakers eyeing one position or the other.
So the more the cracks the better for them. Again, if you check, you find that in any democracy, the people who suffer most are the lawmakers because the executive is permanently there, the judiciary is there; only the lawmakers are suspended when the military intervenes.
So the National Assembly is working hard to be recognized by insisting that whatever is constitutional must be done. And, of course, the executive will rub shoulders with them thinking they want to do their job. But, for now, I think they are going in the right direction and the important thing is for government to move on. You heard what the President said lately that the feud between the National Assembly and the executive is slowing down government and I think both arms of government are aware of this and they are going to address their differences soonest.”
