Oyegun: We’ll Pray, Fast to Compel Buhari to Run for 2019 Poll

Posted on by admin

…Buhari, only politician who can command 12 million votes



National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Chief John Oyegun, has said that the party leadership would engage in prayer and fasting sessions to compel President Mohammadu Buhari to contest the 2019 presidential election.
President Buhari has not made any official statement about his 2019 ambition and the election is two years away.
Oyegun, who spoke in Abuja, said Buhari is the only politician in Nigeria with the capacity to win 12 million votes without a major campaign.
“There is no another Buhari in this country. Buhari is the only man who can command 12 million votes even without any major campaign. So, you can see the picture. Yes, there will be changes, the party will get new members or lose a few members, but there is no Peoples Democratic Party (PDP). So, there is no strong party any more to say you are going to join and strengthen it. It is only APC that is really a strong party.”
“I will pray, fast to God that Buhari agrees to contest in 2019. If he contests, Nigeria will be better for it.
“My prayer is that we can get Buhari to re-contest in 2019. We don’t know his mind yet, but I will do anything in my power to ensure that he re-contests in 2019. Why? He is the only one who has the moral front and the courage to make the changes that Nigeria needs.
“We need more than four years to get this country to subscribe to a new morality, a new ethic and turn its back on corruption of the very type we are trying to uproot now”, he said.
Oyegun when confronted with a poser on the possibility of an APC victory in 2019 exuded confidence.
“Of course, APC will win”, he said, ruling out the opposition Peoples Democratic Party’s return to power.



“Well, let them come back first. I am not a theorist. If they bounce back, we will have to deal with that, but as at now, they are not bouncing back. PDP is in confusion. PDP is suffering a terminal illness. The party is unlikely to recover from this cancer that is afflicting them”, he boasted in an interview with New Telegraph.

    That’s the kind of “praise singers” the none performing Buhari is dying for. Mr. Oyegun is the kind of “sycophantic hawks” or the “Cabal” surrounding PMB, to which his wife is lamenting about. For their selfish gains, they’ll neva tell Buhari the truth.

    Why don’t you use the time to pray for him to succeed on the first mandate we gave him before you start fasting and prayers to run for second term.
