Mijinyawa stated that President Buhari re-election was the true reflection of the wish of the majority of Nigerians.
According to him, “The reelection of President Muhammadu Buhari did not come to me as a surprise, considering the remarkable achievements so far recorded in his first tenure in various human endeavours, especially in the fight against Boko Haram, corruption and infrastructure development.
“Majority of people who voted for Buhari were masses who felt the impact of change and development.
“The victory could also be a sign of APC’s victory in the governorship and State Assembly elections on March 9.”
