The Secretary to the government of the federation (SGF), Boss Mustapha, says he believes the All Progressives Congress (APC) has won the 2019 elections.
PUNCH reported that Mustapha said this on Thursday during the Gombe state governorship campaign rally at the Olusegun Obasanjo Stadium in Kaltungo, Gombe.
He reportedly said the APC is only waiting for the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to announce the results.
“We are only waiting for the announcement of the results. Just make sure you come out with your PVCs (permanent voter cards) and cast your votes because the Peoples Democratic Party cannot deceive again,” he was quoted to have said.
“Today, the lies of PDP have finished because we are here in Kaltungo to uproot the roots of the PDP. In 2015, the PDP deceived you that our party, the APC was a Boko Haram party, they told you that if you voted for the APC, all of you would be Islamised, there was nothing they didn’t tell you.
“If Buhari plays politics of religion, he wouldn’t have appointed me the SGF because I am a Christian. If he were to be a religious politician, he wouldn’t have taken (Yemi) Osinbajo, a pastor, and made him the vice-president.
“You people of Gombe South, come out and vote for the APC from the top down to the bottom.”
A former governor of the state, Danjuma Goje, said Christians in the north did not enjoy key national appointments until the coming of Buhari.
“Although (Yakubu) Dogara has left the APC, he benefited from the party. He became the Speaker of the House of Representatives,” he said.
