‘Buhari will de­feat Atiku by noon on elec­tion day’

The Punch - - POLITICS TODAY - John Charles, Makurdi

Amem­ber of the All Pro­gres­sives Congress and leader of the Fu­lani Na­tion­al­ity in Benue State, Al­haji Garus Gololo, on Satur­day boasted that Pres­i­dent Muham­madu Buhari would de­feat the pres­i­den­tial can­di­date of the Peo­ples Demo­cratic Party, Atiku Abubakar, be­fore noon on Fe­bru­ary 16.

Gololo said this in an in­ter­view with our correspondent in Makurdi, the state cap­i­tal.

he said Nige­ri­ans were happy with the level of de­vel­op­ment recorded so far that they could not af­ford not to re-elect Buhari.

he said Nige­ri­ans knew the dif­fer­ence be­tween Buhari and Abubakar Atiku in terms of ca­pac­ity to gov­ern and pas­sion for cor­rup­tion.

Ac­cord­ing to him, Buhari has achieved a lot in the last three to four years of his ad­min­is­tra­tion and is ready to do more if re­elected.

he said, “The Fe­bru­ary 16 pres­i­den­tial elec­tion is go­ing to be be­tween Pres­i­dent Muham­madu Buhari of the APC and for­mer Vice Pres­i­dent Atiku Abubakar of the Peo­ples Demo­cratic Party.

“From what I have gath­ered from fel­low Nige­ri­ans, by noon that day, Buhari would have de­feated Atiku.

“There is no ar­gu­ment about this. It is a fact. What do you think Atiku can of­fer?

“Buhari has done well and even or­di­nary peo­ple on the streets know what I am talk­ing about. If you talk of in­fras­truc­tural de­vel­op­ment, he has done well, sev­eral fed­eral roads are un­der con­struc­tion.

“Look at the rail line linked to many states. Chil­dren who were born about 30 -40 years ago who have never seen a train in their lives are very happy see­ing train which passes through their do­mains and are now en­joy­ing rail trans­porta­tion.

“This is a very good and big project that has turned around the for­tune of so many Nige­ri­ans.”
