Atiku, Peter Obi, Others Are Victims Of Over Confidence – Buhari

President Muhammadu Buhari has described former Vice-President Atiku Abubakar and Peter Obi, and other key opposition figures as victims of over confidence.

Although the president did not mention their names specifically, he said while the All Progressives Congress (APC) was working hard to retain power, the combined opposition was basking in over confidence.

The President said this while speaking at his residence in the State House, Abuja, where he received the Progressive Governors Forum led by their Chairman, Governor Abubakar Atiku Bagudu of Kebbi State.

He said: “They were already telling their foreign backers that they would defeat the APC. Our Party blended confidence with caution, we worked hard and won. Now, their over confidence is creating more problems for the opposition than anyone else.

“They are finding it hard to convince those who supported them from outside why they are unable to beat us. A combination of over confidence, 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?”

Speaking in response to an issue raised by Governor Bagudu, President Buhari said, “An important reason I congratulate Asiwaju on winning is because 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?” he asked.

The President, in a statement by his media aide, Malam Garba Shehu, charged the APC governors to stick together and openly address issues among themselves.
