President Muhammadu Buhari has stated reasons why opposition parties lost in the 2023 general elections.
According to him, while the All Progressives Congress (APC) was working hard to retain the presidency, the others were basking in the euphoria of “false hope”.
Buhari spoke on Thursday during a meeting with APC governors at the state house, Abuja.
The president said his party blended confidence with caution and worked hard to win the election.
Buhari also criticised the opposition parties for failing to accept defeat.
“They were already telling their foreign backers that they would defeat the APC. They are finding it hard to convince those who supported them from the outside why they are unable to beat us,” he said.
“A combination of overconfidence, complacency and bad tactical moves made them lose, plain and clear. This has created more problems in their camp. Why did they fail to remove us?
“An important reason I congratulate Asiwaju on winning is that the opposition got support and false hope from outside and went on to create the impression that they will win, that they will defeat us. How more wrong could anyone be?”
Buhari urged the governors to continue solving problems and address critical issues among themselves openly.
He added that open discussions will help them survive politically.
