Speaking during an interview on Channels TV on Sunday, May 5, 2022, the Kogi State Governor submitted that his party, the All Progressives Congress, APC, will be celebrating victory before 2pm on the election day if he emerges the party’s flagbearer.
In his words:
“My interest is to fly the flag of APC as its presidential candidate and defeat PDP, former Vice President Atiku Abubakar at the polls.
“So if you’re talking about whether I will beat Atiku or not, let me tell you, and I say this sometimes when I was running for my second time, when I was accosted by a press man in the villa and asked me whether I would be able to win my second term. And I said no, it’s not just victory we’re looking at but the margin of victory.
“And as I speak with you now before 2pm on the day of the general election, we’ll be celebrating victory by the special grace of God when I secure the party.”
