Umar Bago, a member of the House of Representatives representing Chanchaga Federal Constituency, disclosed that President Muhammadu Buhari’s cult-like popularity would win the 2019 presidential elections for the All Progressives Party, APC.

Mr Bago, who spoke newsmen in Minna on Thursday, emphasised that the President still enjoyed the love of eligible Nigerians.

According to him, Mr Buhari remained the greatest political force in Nigeria as far as followership and massive support were concerned.

“Mr President has amassed a cult-like followership, especially among youths and women, irrespective of religious, ethnic, tribal and political differences,” he said.
