The Buhari Media Organisation, BMO, has betell the Economist Magazine’s prediction of the aftermath of the 2019 Presidential election, as unintelligent, noxious, and alien, as it has no basis in reality.

The UK Magazine, had predicted that the Presidential Candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Atiku Abubakar, would defeat the incumbent President,
Muhammadu Buhari, of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in the February 16, 2019 election.

According to This Day Newspaper, the Economic Intelligent Unit, EIU, of the Magazine, expects that the next government “will be led by the PDP, although the administration will be fragile”.

In its reaction however, the BMO stated that the prediction lacks practical evidence and methodological
credibility; and it is coming from a Magazine that has a record of inaccurate predictions.

In a statement signed by its Chairman and Secretary, Niyi Akinsiju and Cassidy Madueke, respectively, which was sent to Ultimatetimes Tv, on Friday, the BMO said:

This is a prediction that will fail, just as the same Economist Magazine failed, when it said in its prediction that Hillary Clinton would defeat Donald
Trump, in the United States Presidential election.”

“This Economist Magazine gamble is noxious, unintelligent, prurient and alien. It is fiction masquerading as facts and a nullity. To start with, the
Magazine failed on how it arrived at this dubious conclusion. It also shows that the EIU and its task masters, have a predetermined objective, without
taking into cognisance the realities on the ground.”

The BMO, is of the opinion that virtually all the basis of assumptions by the Magazine are completely off the mark:

For instance, how can any intelligent person predict that the Southern part of Nigeria would vote for Atiku, when evidence on ground indicates huge support for Buhari.”

“Also, President Buhari’s achievements all over the nation and dividends of democracy to millions of Nigerians, has put him in a vantage position over
every and other Presidential Candidate.

Its social investments programmes, massive infrastructural development and agricultural revolution, and diversification of the economy, speak
volume of President Buhari’s ability and successes in governance.”
