Buhari said after failing in 2003, 2007 and 2011, he decided to put his faith in God, who ultimately decides who wins elections, and “in 2015, I got here”.

He stated this at the All Progressives Congress (APC) Ward Congress held at Bayagida Model Primary School, Katsina State, on Saturday.

The President called for patience, maturity and orderliness as the 2019 elections’ calendar begins to unfold.

He urged political parties, candidates and the electorate to put the country first and always remember that “victory ultimately belongs to God”.

“After going to the court so many times to challenge results of elections in 2003, 2007 and 2011, and going up to the Supreme Court, I concluded that ultimately it is God who determines who will win elections, and in 2015 I got here,’’ he said.

Also speaking, the Katsina state governor, Alhaji Aminu Masari, said the process of electing the leaders of the party at the ward level was hitch-free, orderly and based on the constitution of the APC.

“What we have here are our leaders that were chosen based on consensus and we are happy that it reflects the will of the people and the APC constitution. We followed the process to also ensure that there is affirmation,’’ he said.

The Chairman of the Organising Committee for the Ward Congress, who is also the Commissioner of Justice and Attorney General, Ahmad Usman El-Marzuq, urged the party leaders to remain loyal and live up to expectations.



  1. Yes, my beloved PMB, it’s an idiot that will not know that it’s only God and he alone that decides who becomes what in life!

  2. If it was God, u would v done well so far cus u will v his fear in mind but since its tru ur traits, see what u caused d nation.

  3. Can President Buhari remember that prior to his winning his party nomination before the elections he cried and asked to be supported?, what did we get in return?, crumbled the economy, led us into recession, corruption remain abated, politics still being played as of old,declining moral values, liars in power, weaker institutions, poor judicial system, Benue killings and so much more. He should learn from former President Jonathan who accidentally got into power and had nothing to offer Nigerians. ultimate power belong to the people, Nigerians should inculcate the habits of questioning our elected officials before and after the elections. We are in a huge mess as a country, a society that refuses to govern itself wisely would end up being governed by a despot.
