Personal Assistant to President Muhammadu Buhari, Lauretta Onochie, has supported a statement by the Governor of Kaduna state, Nasir El-Rufai, that President Muhammadu Buhari will emerge victorious in 2019. The presidential aide while reiterating her support for Buhari warned those not in support of the president’s re-election bid to stop abusing and laying curses. According to her, everyone should promote their alternative candidate and stop condemning Buhari’s supporters.
Recall that Nasir El-Rufai, Governor of Kaduna State, had expressed optimism that the President Muhammadu Buhari-led All Progressives Congress, APC, will win 24 states of the federation and emerge victorious come 2019 presidential election. But Onochie tweeted, “As @elrufai said, we are BUHARISTS. We are not confused as to who we want to continue to lead this nation. “If you don’t agree with us, no need to curse, abuse & insult, Name & promote your alternative to our option You are within your rights, so are we.” Recall that Onochie had boasted that ordinary Nigerians will win the presidential election for the All Progressives Congress (APC) come 2019.
