•President Buhari and Vice President Yemi Osinbajo

The presidency has said that the outcome of last weekend’s bye-elections in Bauchi, Katsina and Kogi states have placed President Muhammadu Buhari and Vice President, Professor Yemi Osinbajo in good stead to win next year’s presidential election.

Addressing journalists at the State House on Monday, the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, said election after election, Nigerians continue to place confidence on President Buhari and the vice president.

Shehu said, “The decisive victories are an indication and a clear statement by Nigerians that Nigerians have spoken; that President Buhari maintains and retains his momentum that these big victories place the Buhari, Osinbajo ticket that won in 2015, in a very good stead for next year’s election.

“It represents certainly, a statement on the fact that the APC would go into the election next year with every confidence that the election will be won.

“Nigerians, by this statement, are also saying that they no longer have time for politics of insults, diversion and mudslinging and the ‘monkey dey work, baboon dey chop’ politics of the PDP”.

Shehu appealed to the National Assembly to work with President Buhari to enable him to continue providing good governance.
