Overconfidence Made Opposition Lose Presidential Polls – Buhari.

President Muhammadu Buhari has said overconfidence made opposition parties get defeated in the 2023 presidential election.


According to a statement issued by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, Buhari stated this when members of the Progressives Governors’ Forum visited him at the State House, Abuja on Thursday.


The president however commended the All Progressives Congress (APC) for working hard to retain power at the centre by winning the election.


His words: “They (the opposition) 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 overconfidence is creating more problems for the opposition than anyone else. They are finding it hard to convince those who supported them from the outside why they are unable to beat us.
