“Nigerians Will Vote For Me & Disgrace Buhari , PDP Will Take Over Lagos” – Jonathan Boasts
March 27, 2015 – “Nigerians Will Vote For Him & Disgrace Buhari , PDP Will Take Over Lagos” – Jonathan Boasts
Excerpt from President Jonathan’s interview with The Cable TV
“I don’t think Nigerians will make the mistake of voting for Buhari. Gen. Buhari, with due respect, is not the right option for Nigeria at this time. It is a gamble that is not worth taking.
“I may not be perfect as nobody is perfect. But I believe that come Saturday, the majority of Nigerian voters will choose me as the best candidate to lead the nation forward.”
“You should remember the Ekiti governorship election last year. Before the election, many people were saying APC would win by a landslide. But we in the PDP were busy mobilising the grassroots, going from village to village, from town to town.
The result shocked everybody, apart from us at the PDP. I am not underrating APC, but I think they are grossly overrated.
We shall meet on the field. That is where we will test our true strengths. We are fully ready. You will soon see,”.
“The real battleground is Lagos, and if you have been following events closely, the PDP is reborn in Lagos. Wait and see how Lagosians will vote,” he said about election in Lagos.
He also says Buhari/Osinbajo combination is definitely not a winning team;
“You cannot call Osinbajo a political heavyweight in the South West. The Yoruba are more sophisticated than that. In 2011, two of my opponents fielded their running mates from the South West. Still, the South West decided to vote for me. That tells you a lot about the voters in the South West. They cannot be hoodwinked,” the president said.
