The Presidency has made it clear that it is not prepared to engage in noisy campaign for the 2019 general elections even as it warned anybody who is preparing for noise to also prepare to receive defeat.
Answering questions from news men today, Wednesday at the Presidential Villa, Abuja, the Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Boss Mustapha said that Muhammadu Buhari’s government has performed creditably with evidences that will be shown to Nigerians.
“And this morning, I had the privilege of laying before the Federal Executive Council (FEC),a compendium of the policies and programmes and projects initiated and implemented by this government in two and a half years.
“It is a total of 1,042 page document containing facts and figures, not stories. They are facts of what we have been able to achieve and I think we have set the tone that this campaign will be driven by issues. This campaign must be predicated upon what you are able to bring to the table for the people of Nigeria.”
He described the All Progressives Congress (APC) as one big family, adding that the recent primaries would not divide the party.
“In a contest, there are bound to be winners and losers but in the spirit of the game of politics which is like any other sport after the game is over, whoever has emerged victorious must be magnanimous and gracious in his victory, and whoever has lost out should also accept it in the spirit of sportsmanship.”
