Junaid Mohammed

Second Republic lawmaker Junaid Mohammed has accused the All Progressives Congress (APC)-led administration of becoming too reliant on corruption to win elections.

The elder statesman made this known in a statement while reacting to Saturday’s Osun State election, which was declared inconclusive by independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

Junaid noted that the Osun election showed that the APC-led government was no longer popular among Nigerians.

He said: “My belief is that the APC has become too arrogant and too reliant on corruption rather than performance to win an election.

“There is a trend emerging in the South-West and that is going to manifest in other parts of the country – from the South to the Middle Belt and to the North – the APC is no longer the predominant party of this country.

“The ridiculous government policies and other misgivings have not given the ruling party any edge in the states. Therefore, 2019 is very open.”
