BMO To Atiku: President Buhari Will Win By A Landslide
President Muhammadu Buhari would win the February 23 Presidential election with a landslide, according to the Buhari Media Organisation (BMO)
This it said is based on projections and field surveys on the campaign activities of the President and the governing All Progressives Congress (APC)
BMO said in a statement signed by its Chairman Niyi Akinsiju and Secretary Cassidy Madueke that there are indications that the deliberate effort by President Buhari and his deputy Yemi Osinbajo to bond with the Nigerian people through the ruling party’s multi-level campaign has worked.
“For the first time since 1999 a governing party reached out to real voters through a multi-level campaign that is unknown in this part of the world
“Quite a number of Nigerians including the opposition were stunned to see the President himself leading a full blown campaign to all 36 states and the federal capital territory at the rate of two states a day.
“At the same time Vice President Yemi Osinbajo embarked on a nationwide door-to-door campaign including family chats to personally reel out the achievements of the administration in a convivial environment.
“The third level of the campaign is the Women and Youth one spearheaded by the wife of the President Aisha Buhari which was done on a zonal basis.
“Compare this with a stuttering opposition campaign that could not take Atiku Abubakar beyond 19 states before the Presidential election was postponed to February 23”, it said
The pro- Buhari group noted that the organic crowd at those rallies and the reception the APC team got are strong indicators that the President would do better than he did in virtually all the geo-political zones.
BMO said: “The crowd at the rallies showed that Nigerians are ready to hedge their bet on a President that has literally turned the country into a giant construction site than an opposition candidate which the international media has branded an “established thief and a kleptocrat.”
“It was also clear that the PDP candidate did not enjoy enough support of many of his party’s governors who were reluctant to join him on the campaign trail or campaign on his behalf at the grassroots
“From all indications, the opposition was relying on subterfuge and manipulation of the process but we at BMO are convinced that all those efforts including those that were manifest after the postponement would be resisted by Nigerians”
