Lai Mohammed, the Minister of Information and Culture, has urged the opposition to put an end to their incessant complaining about the disastrous 2023 presidential election, saying that they are well aware that their overconfidence and complacency caused them to lose the election.
The Minister stated that President Buhari’s analysis of the factors that contributed to the opposition’s defeat in the 2023 elections was undeniable in a statement released on April 30 in Abuja.
He stated that the President is deserving of nothing but praise for conducting the unquestionably the most successful election in Nigeria’s history. He also stated that the opposition’s volatile but predictable response to the President’s remarks has demonstrated who they are: They are shameless losers. Review that President Buhari a couple of days prior said the resistance groups lost the political race because of presumptuousness.
“President Muhammadu Buhari lived up to his billing by delivering a free, fair and credible election, and his legacy is assured. The President would rather lose his state and many of his party’s strongholds than tamper with the fidelity of the election, and that is why he provided a level playing field for all parties,” Mohammed said.
The Minister said the opposition’s overconfidence going into the election stemmed in part from the blitzkrieg of social media propaganda as well as faulty and procured opinion polls, which were apparently meant to hoodwink their foreign backers and a section of the international media into uncritically reporting that they were coasting home to victory, when they were indeed heading into the ravine of defeat.
