Lai Mohammed is confident that President Muhammadu Buhari will win the 2019 elections.
The Minister of Information and Culture told Bloomberg in an interview: “He (Buhari) is very strong and well. I have never lost sleep over the re-election. Buhari will easily win.”
Buhari who recently attended the 2018 Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting in the United Kingdom, officially announced his intention to seek re-election in the 2019 during a meeting with the APC’s National Executive Committee on April 9.
Mohammed further revealed that the reason for farmers-herdsmen clash is not ethnic or religious, but a problem of diminishing resources. “On farmers-herdsmen crisis, the Minister said: “The talks are looking good. Some people will criticize this and say how about all those people they killed. But we cannot continue to be stranded in the past forever. We should think about the future, and want a peaceful future,” he said. “The issue is not ethnic or religious, but a problem of diminishing resources, a growing population and climate change that’s dramatically reduced the size of Lake Chad and disrupted the economy in the region.”
