Tony Anenih, Chairman, Board of Trustees (BoT), of the Peoples Democratic Party, (PDP) has declared emphatically that President Goodluck Jonathan will defeat the Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.)presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, (APC) in next month’s presidential election. Anenih, at a rally on Sunday in Uromi, headquarters of Esan North-East Local Government Area of Edo State, said he is convinced that the incumbent present will be re-elected.
Anenih said: “Don’t be deceived if anyone tells you Jonathan will not win. I went out to see things for myself. Four days ago I was in Kwara State. As I was leaving after sitting for five hours, I knew that we have won Kwara.
“Two days ago as Buhari was landing in Sokoto, I was also landing in Sokoto and by the time I was leaving, I knew we have won Sokoto State. These are northern states.”
He called on the people of Edo State to support the PDP at the polls at all levels, saying it would be sad if people vote for APC candidates because “You don’t take food from your son for a dog, coming back home, it will be a sad tale for any member of the South- South region to vote for the APC candidates, whether in the Houses of Assembly, House of Representatives, Senate, governorship or Presidential election. It will be so bad; you take food from your son to a dog,” he said.
