Former Vice President Atiku Abubakar, says he will easily defeat President Buhari in the 2019 election. Atiku who resigned from APC two weeks ago, had a chat with Dele Momodu in Lagos where he stated that he will defeat President Buhari if he returns to PDP and gets the party’s presidential ticket
“I will definitely beat him this time. He has wasted a lot of his massive goodwill. A lot of people are disgruntled but keeping quiet and lying low. Our youths are suffering terribly and now they are being sold into slavery. Everyone knows my track record of inviting and attracting a good team and giving them the opportunity to work professionally. Nigerians are tired of leaders who cannot think big and work big. Dele, I will be ready from day one…”
Asked if he is certain he will be returning to PDP, the former Vuce Presidnet said he is not very certain but that he knows that PDP is waiting to welcome him back. When asked if he has any guarantee of getting the PDP presidential ticket, he said
“Nothing is absolutely certain in this life, but PDP needs a candidate with the brightest chance and that can only come from someone who has major experience, exposure, knowledge about running an economy, who is a Nationalist and not a sectionalist and whose brand cannot be intimidated in anyway by that of the current President. If PDP picks a weak candidate, then the Party is doomed. Some of those whose names are being touted and bandied about have not grown beyond their immediate domains.”
When asked to respond to allegations that his fraudulent activities in the US has cause him not to be able to visit the country again, Atiku said
“It is the sole prerogative of America to determine who they want in their country or not. I’m not running away from America. I applied, but wasn’t issued a visa. However, they did not decline me categorically either. They’ve only said my application is going through administrative process. This is not peculiar to me. For about 15 years, Buhari could not enter America on account of religious considerations. The current Indian Prime Minister, Modi, suffered the same fate for years. Today, he is being treated to red carpet treatment in America.. I fly to different parts of the world, including Europe, if America wanted me, it would be so easy for them to reach out to their allies…”
