Former Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), David Babachir Lawal, has said that voters would elect candidates on their personal merit in 2019, unlike in 2015.
“In 2015, voters were asked to vote APC in all elections. That gave the party a massive momentum and all its candidates were returned elected.
“The situation will be different in 2019. Many governors and senators have not performed. They have not replicated President Muhammadu Buhari’s performance. Such people will be voted out,” Babachir told newsmen on Wednesday in Yola.
According to him, voters were now more critical and will only elect people with credible records.
Babachir further stated that Nigeria could only move forward if credible people were elected as leaders, saying that no elected leader would be allowed to ride to power on Buhari’s credible outing.
