According to a statement by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity , Garba Shehu , the President spoke in his hometown , Daura , Katsina State, while receiving the representatives of the 34 chairmen of the Association of Local Governments of Nigeria .

Buhari said the string of victory recorded by the APC in bye -elections in Bauchi , Katsina and Kogi States was sufficient proof that 2019 elections would be won by the party .

He said , “ Coming against the backdrop of the victory in Ekiti governorship election , the string of victory by our party, the APC , is a clear indication of the way things will go in 2019 .

‘‘ For those who are discerning ; those who have ears and eyes they will see , hear and understand.

“ Those who don’ t understand are entitled to their mistaken assumptions. ”
