The Presidency has advised the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, to give up all aspirations of reclaiming power in 2023, claiming that President Muhammadu Buhari’s legacy will not be easily forgotten.
Garba Shehu, the President’s Senior Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, speaks after the Eid-el-Kabir prayer in Abuja on Tuesday.
President Buhari, he claimed, had unwavering support not only in his hometown but also across the country, and that this was enough for the opposition to recognise that the President was important to the governing party and Nigerians in general.
He claimed Buhari was a political impediment that the PDP and other political parties would be unable to overcome by 2023.
“We think the PDP and other opposition parties are harbouring false aspirations of assuming power in 2023,” Shehu added.
He declared that the people will never forsake Buhari and the APC.
“I tell you that in 2023, the masses will be waiting for the President to lead the way in courtesy of what he has been creating for the nation in terms of infrastructure and the well-being of the country’s young people,” Shehu said.
Nobody would risk asking another party to take office in 2023, according to the presidential spokesperson.
