The President of Nigeria Muhammadu Buhari remains electorally unbeatable with his connection to the people unwavering, in spite recriminations by the top class citizens on social and conventional media, Governor Nasir El-Rufai of Kaduna State has said.
Affirming the president’s electoral invincibility, El-Rufai in an interview on Channels Television said:
“I do not have any doubt in my mind that we are going to win the next elections; not only in the centre but we are going to preserve our 24 states, and even more,” he said.
Insisting that President Buhari remained popular despite insinuations to the contrary in conventional and social media platforms, the governor said:
“We are not saying this foolishly; this is scientific. We are monitoring the pulse of Nigerians, not the pulse of a section of Nigerians and I am confident that we are going to win the 2019 elections.”
“We know the pulse of the nation, we know where we are losing support, we know where we are gaining support; I have no doubt in my mind that we are going to win the 2019 elections.”
“There are two pulses of Nigerians – there is the pulse of the Nigerian elites which is the noise that you hear in the media, the social media and so on; then there is the pulse of the people.”
“If you remember how many people came out to welcome President Buhari in Kano, then you will know that there are two Nigerians.”
