Former Vice-President, Atiku Abubakar has said he “will definitely beat” President Muhammadu Buhari during the 2019 presidential election.
Atiku was quoted as saying this in an interview with Dele Momodu on The Boss newspaper.
What Atiku said:
Atiku said the President has been “wasting” a lot of goodwill since assuming office.
“I will definitely beat him this time (2019). He has wasted a lot of his massive goodwill,” he was quoted as saying.
“A lot of people are disgruntled but keeping quiet and lying low. Our youth 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.”
He added that he is sure the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) is ready to welcome him back.
Atiku 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.
“A candidate who is a nationalist and not a sectionalist and whose brand cannot be intimidated in anyway by that of the current president.”
