The national coordinator, Buhari Campaign Organisation (BCO), Alhaji Danladi Pasali, has said that the defection of some senators and house of representatives members from the ruling All Progressive Congress (APC) to the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) will not in anyway affect the popularity of President Muhammdu Buhari in next year’s elections.
Briefing newsmen yesterday at the BCO headquarters in Abuja, Alhaji Pasali said analysis of the defected lawmakers shows that most of them took the decision to save their political ambitions as a result of their grievances at the grassroots.
According to him with or without them, the president is already the man of the masses and no serious politician could dump President Buhari or the ruling party at this particular moment.
“All of those that decamped to PDP, need Buhari in their political career more than the way Buhari needs them. Except few among them, the majority of them rode on the wave of popularity of His Excellency, President Muhammadu Buhari in 2015 to secure their mandates. So for us at the BCO, we regard this as great political miscalculation and suicide they committed”.
“We see this as a good omen. We as the BCO, we are celebrating. In most cases you can’t make progress if you have an enemy within, because he will pretend to be with you, but in reality he is using the relationship to bring you down.”
“We urge the President to be cautious of those types of politicians, because many of such people are still within the party, but Almighty God will reveal them one after another, very soon.”
“The truth is that when somebody feels that he or she has followers, 2019 is coming, we know that as far as we are concerned the issue of Kwankwaso and all of the affected lawmakers are nonentity. Look at the arithmetic on how Buhari was contesting elections since 2007, most of them were not with him but he always polled millions of votes at elections because he is the man of the masses.”
“The masses of this country know what Mr President stands for and they tested the good governance that they never witnessed before in terms of infrastructural development in the area of roads, rails, agriculture, health, educations and employment generation. These is the yardstick for economic prosperity not stealing money and sharing it to people without providing any goodies to the people as it used to happen during the PDP 16 years in office.”
