A Federal House of Representatives candidate of the All Progressive Congress (APC) in Bayelsa state for the Southern Ijaw federal constituency, Mr. Preye Oseke, has predicted victory for President Muhammadu Buhari in the forthcoming presidential election.
Mr. Oseke declared that the present administration of President Buhari’s policies of anti-corruption against the “share the money” and practical development of completing projects will deliver the votes for the party in the six geo-political zones of the country.
According to Oseke, though the opposition party has launched series of propaganda targeted at misleading the voting populace, the decision by the President Buhari to ensure that no project is abandoned, the anti-corruption stance and commitment to proper capital allocation will make him emerged victorious during the presidential election.
Mr. Oseke, who made the prediction during an interactive session with newsmen in Yenagoa, said the states in the south-South are ready to deliver their votes to President Buhari in spite of the campaign of ethnicity launched by the opposition parties in the region.
According to him, “President Muhammadu Buhari will win in the south south and other parts of the geo-political zone. The people of the south south, despite some ongoing campaign by the opposition, cannot afford to be disconnected from the centre. We cannot afford another four years of deceit in Bayelsa and other states of the region.
“If you look at the present administration of President Buhari, it is an administration that has ensured that every abandoned capital projects from past administrations are completed. He has stopped the “share the money” syndrome and focused on proper allocation of resources.
“Instead of witch hunting those in opposition that are involved in the series of abandoned projects that littered the country, he has continually delivered and completed the projects. Some said once a politician defected into APC, it means he is no longer corrupt, it is not true.”
On Bayelsa politics ahead of the 2019 election, Mr. Oseke insisted that the APC is on ground and that Bayelsa state is for President Muhammadu Buhari and the All Progressive Congress (APC).
“I can tell you without mincing words that the party enjoys the support from every nooks and crannies of the state. APC represents progressive change in Bayelsa state. No matter the propaganda by the opposition party in the state that APC represent violence and banditry, it is a lie. The stereotype propaganda cannot change the outcome of the election.
“Some of them even say PDP is an Ijaw party and I found it funny that they don’t even have an Ijaw man as national chairman. For Bayelsa, it is time to connect to the national level. We cannot afford to allow another four years of deceit by this party to rule us in deceit.”
