Coalition Cannot Stop Buhari’s Re-election In 2019 – APC

Alhaji Aliyu Bello, Secretary of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Nasarawa said that the new Coalition of United Political Parties (CUPP) cannot stop President Muhammadu Buhari `s re-election in 2019.

Bello told newsmen in Lafia on Tuesday, that Buhari came to power on the goodwill of the people, adding that he would still leverage on that given the achievements recorded so far.

He added that the coalition was a gang up of the political class, who were not comfortable with the feat recorded by Buhari, especially in the fight against corruption.

“More than 90 per cent of Nigerians are not card carrying members of political parties but voters, who the president is counting on to be re-elected in 2019.

“The amount of love shown through the mammoth crowd that normally greeted his visits to many parts of the country in recent time is a pointer to his acceptance in spite of all the antics by the opposition,” Bello said.

He, however, said that the coalition was a wakeup call for the APC to redouble its efforts ahead of 2019.

“As a political party that wants its membership to grow, losing any member to another party calls for concern.

“As we are losing some, other vibrant Nigerians are joining our fold and we will work assiduously to bring more to joins us,” he added.

He expressed confidence in the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to conduct a credible, free and fair election in 2019.

Bello said that the use of the card reader machine would make the process very difficult to manipulate.

Reports have it that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) joined over 30 other political parties and groups to form the CUPP.

Reports showed that leaders of the merging political parties including the Reformed All Progressives Congress (R-APC) signed a memorandum of Understanding to oust President Buhari in 2019.
