The immediate past Minister of Communication , Adebayo Shittu , on Wednesday said the All Progressives Congress might find it difficult to get votes in the 2023 general elections if the party failed to put its house in order .
The ex – minister spoke in Osogbo while featuring on ‘ The Frontliners” a programme organised by the Association of Veteran Journalists , Osun State branch .
Shittu , who described as idiotic the insinuations that the President , Major General Muhammadu Buhari , (retd . ) , would be seeking third term in 2023 , said in the last two presidential elections, Buhari got over 15 million votes with 12 million of the votes coming from the North alone .
He said , “ In the last two elections, Buhari got over 15 million votes and that is because he is on the ballot . From the North alone , he got over 12 million votes on each occasion .
“ If the APC is not careful and put its house in order, where will the vote come in 2023 if the magnet of Buhari is no more on the ballot ?
“ Buhari is the most selfless leader Nigeria ever had.
This is one President who when elected slashed his salary by 50 per cent
“ As we also know , his lifestyle for the past 20 years has not changed .
He is not flamboyant .
What he is looking for is good legacy.
“ Obasanjo failed when he attempted it (third term); so you think a less ambitious person would now be the one to do that?
It will not happen , so I think it is not a matter we should focus on.
It is a waste of time , ” Shittu said .
