Former Kogi State Senator, Dino Melaye has opined that the presidential candidate of the People’s Democratic Party Atiku Abubakar is not a ‘candidate’ but an ‘awaiting president’.
In a post shared on his Facebook page, Melaye said, the other presidential candidates like Bola Tinubu, Peter Obi, and Rabiu Kwankwaso are no threat to Atiku because they cannot enjoy national acceptability like Atiku. He noted that Atiku has the ability to clinch more than 25% of the votes in all the states across Nigeria. Melaye recalled how Muhammadu Buhari won the 2019 election, stating that the difference between him and Atiku was less than three million votes.
He wrote: “Even when almighty Buhari supposedly won the 2019 election, Which is not correct. The difference between his votes and that of Atiku was less than 3 million. Atiku won 17states + FCT, and Buhari won 19 states. Only one state in between. Atiku scored over 11 million votes and had 25% across 2/3 of all the states in Nigeria.”
“None of Tinubu, Peter Obi, Kwankwaso and co can ever enjoy national acceptability like Buhari. In other words, APC has no candidate who’s a threat to Atiku. Giving without conceding that Obi will pull majority votes in the South Eastern part of Nigeria whose total votes is less than 3 million votes.”
“Be wise and vote the right fellow countrymen and women. Atiku remains the only symbol of National Unity and hope for Nigeria and Nigerians.”
“It’s a known fact that Atiku has the ability to clinch more than 25% votes in all states across Nigeria.”
