2019 Elections: President Buhari Laments Over Huge Resources of PDP
Ahead of next year’s elections, President Muhammadu Buhari says there are enormous resources at the disposal of the opposition which the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, may not be able to match.
This is after three and a half years in the saddle after a vigorous attempt to recoup funds alleged to have been misappropriated by key actors in the last administration.
The President spoke on Friday as he played host to members of the Buhari Media Organisation who paid him a courtesy visit at State House, Abuja.
President Muhammadu Buhari expressed sympathy for those who are defending him and his administration, noting that it was not easy to defend his administration in the face of opposition.
He thanked the group for its sacrifice and sympathised with it for losing friends in a bid to support him without any financial benefit.
The Buhari Media Organisation metamorphosed from the media outfit of the All Progressives Congress campaign team in Twenty Fifteen.
The main opposition party, the Peoples Democratic Party, according to reports is not relenting and has been raising funds to battle the ruling party in the 2019 election.
Despite that many of the PDP members were arrested and prosecuted for alleged public fund looting and laundering, the party seems ready to spend some money.
