The Senate President, Bukola Saraki, on Sunday, said that the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has all it takes to win next year’s general elections, despite being an opposition party.
Saraki said that the party will not only sweep the elections in Kwara State, but will win the Presidential election, because the platform has top Strategists as Leaders.
He asked his supporters not to be afraid of the use of Federal might in the forthcoming general elections, pointing out that he had confronted such situations in two previous elections, and floored the incumbents.
Saraki spoke at the inauguration of a 42-man Campaign Council for the the State PDP, at ABS Mandate Constituency Office, Ilorin.
The Senate President stressed that while the 2019 elections, like any other elections, has its challenges, experience has shown that with “the right tactics and strategies, the PDP will win the State again.”
He said: “Do not be afraid, do not create fears in your heart, I have heard all the talks of the opposition about using Federal might. But we have seen it all.
“We saw it in 2003, we saw it in 2015, or do you not know that they used Federal might in 2015? In 2015, with Federal might, we defeated them. It was you people that God used then, and in 2019 with those who have come to join us, we will defeat them again.”
He, however, asked members of the Campaign Council to demonstrate utmost faithfulness in the discharge of their duties, to achieve the desired results.
“Every election has its challenges. But, we have what it takes to tackle it, and once you are committed, victory is our”, he said, and tasked the party on the need to implement a rigorous campaign to ensure everyone is reached.
He pleaded with aggrieved members of the PDP, to sheath their sword and work for the party’s victory, promising that there would be a better deal for Nigerians under a government run by Atiku Abubakar, the PDP Presidential Candidate.
According to Saraki, it is only when the PDP is in power at the Federal level, that things can return to normal for suffering Nigerians, and the hopes of the people properly addressed.
