The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, has reacted to a statement credited to the APC National Chairman, Adams Oshiomhole.
Oshiomhole was recently quoted stating that President Muhamamdu Buhari will retire Atiku and ex-president Olusegun Obasanjo by defeating them in the 2019 presidential election.
Reacting tot he statement, Atiku’s media aide, Paul Ibe said, “It is not political soothsayers like Oshiomhole that will determine the outcome of the elections but let it be known to him that President Buhari will not only be defeated, he will be retired to his beloved Daura in 2019.
“Does Oshiomhole think that Nigerians are fools? What will determine the direction of votes are the insecurity challenges, job losses, pain, anguish, and economic strangulation that this incompetent government has subjected Nigerians.
“For Atiku, it is about jobs; for Buhari, it is hopelessness. For Atiku, it is about opportunities; for Buhari, it is insensitivity. For Atiku, it is about inclusiveness; for Buhari, it is clannishness. Atiku is all about Getting Nigeria Working Again.
“So, we urge Oshiomhole to keep his peace and allow Nigerians, who have passed through hell in the hands of his principal, to cast their votes in a transparent, free and fair election.”
