Huma rights activist and elder statesman, Tanko Yakasai, has said that the All Progressives Congress, APC, will lose the 2019 elections.
The 90-year old activist said if the 2019 elections are free and fair, the APC will lose.
Yakasai who was a presidential adviser to President Shehu Shagari said Nigerians will vote out the government of the APC because of the state of poverty and rising cost of living.
The founding member of the Arewa Consultative Forum in a chat said:
“In my opinion, Nigerians will vote out APC in 2019 because they are complaining over the cost of living and the rate of poverty is on the increase.
“I don’t see how APC will win if they don’t manipulate the process.
“How much was a dollar last year, how much is it now? What about the cost of bag of rice, basket of tomatoes and other.
“Farmers are complaining about fertilizers but it was not like this when PDP was in power.”
Tanko Yakasai said this when High Chief Raymond Dokpesi led members of his campaign team to his Kano residence.
