Nigeria: Ahead of 2019 Elections Buhari He Fears the Finances Available to the Opposition

President Buhari has declared that his party, the All Progressives Congress (APC) may not be able to match the financial capacity of the opposition.

He also pointed out that the opposition was sponsoring attempts to discredit his administration.

The president made these claims while receiving members of the Buhari Media Organization when they paid him a courtesy visit at the Presidential Villa, Abuja. He noted the difficulty they were facing considering the mounting criticism and opposition against his administration.

Buhari went on to appreciate their efforts, saying “I don’t think I can thank you enough for your steadfastness under very difficult circumstances. It is not easy to defend this administration and more in particular to defend me.

“But your consistency has given me a lot of confidence. And I know you are doing it as a sacrifice not only in terms of physical or mental but material sacrifice.

“Because as I keep on saying, the opposition elements are now sitting on incredible resources which I am afraid we might not match at all. For that reason the opposition is sponsoring mischief from different angles which in spite of the incumbency of government we cannot absolutely stop.

“It is you who are fighting it and I cannot thank you enough for that. Most of the people I jailed have been given back all that they had taken before I was jailed.”

He went on to say “I can appreciate the sacrifices most of you sitting here have made in terms of materialism or even losing some of your friends to continue to support me. I have been here for three years and you have proved to people that you are not here for material things, but out of sacrifice and the strength of the moral courage you have is the the strength of the physical, it is the strength of losing the friends you have.

I am sure you are being asked, this support you are busy giving Buhari, what do you get out of it. And that is why I commend your steadfastness and I am very grateful for it. In this country whether people like it or not, they will remain grateful for your courage because you have the courage to do the research, to take the time to reply mischievous representation and we are very grateful.”

The Buhari Media Organization is a group tasked with laundering the president’s image especially on social media. It was formerly known as the Buhari Media Support Organization.
