2019 PRESIDENCY: APC must field Buhari ―Preye Aganaba

A chieftain of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Honourable Preye Aganaba, has described an unfair remarks attributed to a serving member of the President Muhammadu Buhari cabinet.

Minister of Women Affairs Aisha Alhasan, had told a BBC Hausa Radio that she would rather support former Vice-President, Atiku Abubakar for the party presidential ticket, if the latter decides to contest.

But addressing newsmen in Abuja, the former senatorial candidate of the party in Bayelsa state, said Senator Alhasan should resign her appointment as he claimed that her comments portrayed lack of loyalty to her principal.

“She has a right to her choice but I think she is not being fair. If she wants to make such public statement as a serving Minister she should resign her appointment. ‘’

He further declared that a cabinet reshuffle by the present administration was long overdue.

Honourable Aganaba however expressed confidence that President Buhari would win the party ticket, if he decides to seek for a fresh mandate in 2019.

“So, I don’t think for now that the APC has any other choice than to re-elect President Buhari, though people are free to contest, nobody is stopping them, this is APC where we usually have free and fair primaries. The last Presidential primaries in Lagos, President Buhari won more than half of the votes.

“During the last APC presidential primaries, the campaign slogan for Buhari was ’12 million assured votes’ and I don’t think one single vote has left that 12 million assured votes, in fact, more has even been added.’’

He also dismissed claims that the economy has not fared better under the present administration.

“I am not bothered about the economy because that will be fixed, for me I’m looking at the politics of various zones because that will determine how much we win the election.

“I think we have done well. Yes, maybe not where we supposed to be because but we have done well. Few days ago, we heard about the story of Nigeria exited recession, the prices of food stuff are coming down, in Abuja here where I live I get minimum of 20 hours of electricity and some days light doesn’t go off for five days and so on. ‘’
