Former Minister of Aviation Femi Fani-Kayode, has admitted that it is going to be very difficult for the main opposition party, the PDP, to defeat President Muhammadu Buhari in 2019.
Fani-Kayode, who was also the Director-general of the Goodluck Jonathan re-election campaign in 2015, said President Buhari commands a “cult-like loyalty,” a situation that will make it difficult to defeat him at the presidential polls in 2019.
In a tweet via his social media handle, the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Chieftain, however, stressed that defeating Buhari will require courage, aggression, cohesion and ingenuity.
Fani-Kayode wrote: “Buhari is not viewed as just a politician in the north: he is a religion and he commands a fanatical following and cult-like loyalty.
“That is what makes him such a dangerous foe and formidable adversary.
“Defeating him in 2019 will require courage, aggression, cohesion and ingenuity.”
