Femi Adesina, presidential representative, says Atiku Abubakar, presidential
competitor of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), won't win the 2019 race regardless of whether witches and wizards underwrite him.
Adesina said this in response to the support of Atiku by five socio-cultural gatherings in the nation.
Writing via his Twitter handle on Monday, he said President Muhammadu Buhari’s opponents will fail during the elections, no matter whose endorsement they get.
On Sunday, the Pan Niger Delta Forum (PANDEF), Northern Elders’ Forum (NEF), Ohanaeze Ndigbo, Afenifere and Middle Belt Forum (MBF) had adopted Abubakar, saying he had shown that he would restructure the country if given the mandate.
But the Buhari campaign had described the endorsement as a deception, alleging that it was engineered and carried out by PDP supporters and sympathisers.
