Come 2027, Tinubu will be re-elected despite economic hardship, opposition alliance – APC



‘There Is poverty and suffering in the nation’ – Tinubu admits

The All Progressives Congress (APC) has dismissed fears that President Bola Tinubu’s re-election in 2027 is uncertain due to the current economic hardship and planned opposition alliance,

Despite the challenges, the party believes Tinubu’s leadership and reforms will secure his re-election.

The Deputy National Organising Secretary, Nze Chidi Duru, in an interview, acknowledged the economic difficulties but said the ongoing reforms by the president will stabilize the economy.

He said, “Our party has always recognised the fact that the current challenging economic environment has not in any way got better. When Mr President took over, he asked Nigerians not to pity him. It is an office that he craved and worked hard for before offering himself to provide leadership to Nigeria.

“What gives confidence is that Mr President is very much aware of the expectations of the person on the street. The minimum expectation will be that they need to be comfortable. So, the discussion around 2027 (election) is not out of place. In the life of a country, four years is like yesterday.

“Let me say every political office holder or politician knows that the first date in office is key because the citizens who elected you into office and those who did not elect you will begin to track your performance as a result of that. They can then decide whether or not to re-elect you.

“Concerning whether we will be re-elected, as a democrat and my personal view, we have always canvassed that unless His Excellency President Bola Tinubu will not contest, the APC government is bound to be represented by our candidate in 2027 to fly the flag for the simple reason that I want to bring up. And, of course, there is the incumbency factor.”
