“APC Without Buhari May Face Difficulty In 2023” – Ex Minister

Published

on

Adebayo Shittu

The immediate past Minister of Communication, Adebayo Shittu, on Wednesday, said the All Progressives Congress might find it difficult to get votes in the 2023 general elections if the party failed to put its house in order.

The ex-minister spoke in Osogbo while featuring on ‘The Frontliners” a programme organised by the Association of Veteran Journalists, Osun State branch.

Shittu, who described as idiotic the insinuations that the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari, (retd.), would be seeking the third term in 2023, said in the last two presidential elections, Buhari got over 15 million votes with 12 million of the votes coming from the North alone.

He said, “In the last two elections, Buhari got over 15 million votes and that is because he is on the ballot.  From the North alone, he got over 12 million votes on each occasion.

“If the APC is not careful and puts its house in order, where will the vote come in 2023 if the magnet of Buhari is no more on the ballot?

“Buhari is the most selfless leader Nigeria ever had. This is one President who when elected slashed his salary by 50 per cent

“As we also know, his lifestyle for the past 20 years has not changed. He is not flamboyant. What he is looking for is a good legacy.

“Obasanjo failed when he attempted it (third term), so you think a less ambitious person would now be the one to do that? It will not happen, so I think it is not a matter we should focus on. It is a waste of time,” Shittu said.
