From Ayodele Samuel, Lagos

The Special Adviser to the President on Political Matters, Senator Babafemi Ojudu, has expressed optimism that the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) will coast home to victory in the February 23 presidential election.
Ojudu, in an interview with journalists, said although there were pockets of violence in some parts of the country, APC has largely done well in the contest and President Muhammadu Buhari was poised for victory.
“It happened things have gone well, largely we have done very well in almost all the states expect from some incidence in Rivers, Lagos, and Taraba
“From reports coming in from our agents across the country, our party is doing well, we even got surprises in some states we were not expecting victory. We are very confident of victory. It has shown that our messages of taking the country to the next level is accepted by the people. It shows the ordinary people of this country have come to believe in our presidential candidate and have confidence in his ability to take them to the next level.,” Ojudu said.
On the call by the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to the Independent National Electoral Comission (INEC) to declare its candidate, Atiku Abubakar, as winner of the election, the top presidential aide dismissed the call as a mere wishful thinking.
“It’s wishful thinking. Even when you are drowning you still keep being hopeful. The most optimistic person you can find in this life is a politician, even when he’s losing he would tell you he is winning. I will call on majority of Nigerians who had voted for Buhari to keep calm.
“There is no reason for anybody in APC to panic at all, we are comfortable, I can assure our supporters and those who are following the process that President Buhari is coasting home to victory. We should wait for INEC to declare the results,”.
“It’s wrong for anybody in the PDP to be stampeding INEC to declare the results. There’s a process, when results are yet to be collated at the state and national levels, you are calling for declaration of results, it means you don’t have confidence in yourselves, you want to create anarchy and the security agents should be on the lookout for elements like that,” Ojudu added.
