Shehu said, “The decisive victories are an indication and a clear statement by Nigerians that Nigerians have spoken; that President Buhari maintains and retains his momentum that these big victories place the Buhari, Osinbajo ticket that won in 2015, in a very good stead for next year’s election.
“It represents certainly, a statement on the fact that the APC would go into the election next year with every confidence that the election will be won.
“Nigerians, by this statement, are also saying that they no longer have time for politics of insults, diversion and mud slinging and the ‘monkey dey work, baboon dey chop’ politics of the PDP”.
