Ahead of the 2019 elections, President Muhammadu Buhari of the All Progressives Congress, APC, party has been urged to concentrate his campaign on damage control rather than on another batch of sure-to-fail promises to Nigerians, Atiku’s close associate, Phrank Shaibu has said.

This is just as President Buhari has unveiled his presidential campaign council called ‘The Next Level’ to Nigerians at the Presidential Villa in Abuja.

However, Mr. Shaibu who is also a public communication expert said Nigerians now know better what campaign promises they are expecting.

He said the campaign promises Nigerians, who have suffered great hardship under the more than three years rule of the Buhari administration, are those based on truth.

Mr. Shaibu said only the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, candidate, Atiku Abubakar, has a better offer for Nigerians.

Atiku’s close associate averred that Nigerians will experience a trend of issue-based campaigns under Abubakar who is also a former Vice President of Nigeria.

He said the campaigns will focus on what he described as “few undecided voters” whom, when exposed to the maladministration of the current Buhari-led government, will have early conclusion on whom to give their mandate between Buhari and Atiku.

According to him, “A large population of Nigerians have been taught new lessons on poor leadership and now have a better understanding of disinformation because they feel the reality of economic pains and hopelessness that have been thrust upon them in the past three years.

"Consequently, the campaign for 2019 presidential elections will be based on truth. Right now, the electorate have grown in knowledge of what choice will be best for them especially on their safety, real economic growth and equity.

"Nigerians will experience a new trend of issue based campaign. The two major contestants have been tested and their performance cum capacities to deliver well documented.

"Already, we have a lot of decided voters especially given their sad experiences and difficulties in the past three years under a president that has ruled Nigeria twice with established antecedent of bringing upon the citizenry abject poverty.

"I believe the campaign focus will be on the few undecided voters. This category of persons, when shown and educated on some hidden facts of maladministration – especially on gross embezzlement; many shades of corruption, selective justice and deceits – will reach early conclusions on which camp to give their mandate.

“I should think the ruling party’s focus should be more on damage control to enable them offer seeming apologies to millions of Nigerians they have diaappointed and the millions they have put in the labour market through their ill performance in government. So, the issue of campaign promises will not hold water for the Buhari camp as their participation in this election is just for posterity to be subtle in judgement of failure.”
