Atiku won’t get 15% votes in Ogun, says pro-Buhari group
The Buhari Youth Campaign Organisation , Ogun State chapter , has said that the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party , Atiku Abubakar , will not get 15 % votes in the February 16 presidential election in the state .
The organisation ’ s state coordinator , Olusegun Clement , stated this on Sunday during a press conference held at the state secretariat of the All Progressives Congress , in Abeokuta .
Clement promised to deliver two million votes for the APC presidential candidate , Muhammadu Buhari , during the election.
He said Buhari deserved to be re -elected for many reasons which he said included his fight against corruption ; improvement in power supply and development of infrastructure, among others.
He said , “ Buhari is our man and we will continue to support him . Our people know what is good for them and come February 16 , President Buhari will be victorious in the state .
“ We have more than 2 , 500 youths as a mechanism we are using to campaign for President Muhammadu Buhari ’ s re- election across the 20 local government areas in the state .
“ Buhari has been a youth- friendly President and has established different programmes to assist and develop the youth across the country. ”
While speaking on why Atiku may not defeat Buhari in the state , the state coordinator listed some issues such as threat to corruption among others which he said would work against the PDP presidential candidate .
He added , “ Before this government came on board , corruption has eaten deep into our dear country to the extent that it is now fighting back which is not healthy for the growth of our dear country.
“ On power supply , the country was generating less than 3 , 000 MW before 2015 , but since President Muhammadu Buhari emerged in 2015 , we have started to generate over 7 , 000 MW .
“ Atiku coming back now is just to boost his business and enrich himself rather than fixing the power issue in the country. ”
Clement warned the people of the state not to put the country in the hands of those that he claimed would sell it to the highest bidder .
“ For us in Ogun State , we are not perturbed because Atiku cannot have 15 per cent votes in this state . ”
