A member of the House of Representatives from Jigawa state, Gudaji Kazaure, says he is yet to see anyone who can defeat President Muhammadu Buhari, whom he described as an old man, in the 2019 general election.
The rep member made this comment at the presidential villa, Abuja, during the launch of “Together Nigeria”, a programme organised by the Buhari Support Organisation (BSO).
Concise News reports that Nigeria’s First Lady, Aisha Buhari; Dolapo Osinbajo, wife of the vice-president; governors and members of the federal executive council were among those in attendance.
“I have not seen anybody that will defeat that old man Buhari,” he said describing the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) as custodians of corruption in Nigeriay.
The lawmaker said that explains why the PDP cannot go out campaigning about corruption ahead of the 2019 general election.
Kazaure called on Nigerians to queue behind Buhari to ensure that he wins and “consolidate the gains recorded in the last three-and-a-half years”.
He also commended Buhari’s wife for speaking on national issues. He said like him, her frankness might give powerful persons in government sleepless nights and make them uncomfortable.
Kazaure said he has opened Next Level campaign on social media and that there nine million followers who will vote for Buhari in 2019.
“Let us be patient with the President, the next four years will be better,” he added.
Meanwhile, Concise News, however, reports that the lawmaker is known for making comical statements in the House.
