Atiku is a big challenge in South-West, he may defeat Buhari in 2019, says aggrieved APC aspirant


An aggrieved House of Representatives aspirant for the seat of Ekiti Central constituency 1 on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Olayinka Olafemi Daniels, has warned the party against fielding unpopular candidates, saying it would result to the defeat of President Muhammadu Buhari, in the forthcoming general elections.

Daniels who spoke to journalists in Abuja yesterday, described as a conspiracy against President Buhari, attempts by some party leaders to foist unpopular candidates on the people.

He warned that any attempt by the party leaders at the National Secretariat of the party to succumb to the manipulations at the state level will force the electorate to vote for the opposition party, thereby denying the APC presidential candidate the requisite votes to win the election.

He said: “The programmes of the president are laudable, but should not be truncated by these desperate acts of some of our leaders.

“I am not a desperate politician because I have my profession, and a source of livelihood. But we are passionate about this party, and want the president to succeed.

“We should not underrate the opposition, and I must tell you that the emergence of Atiku as the presidential candidate of the PDP is a major challenge in the South-West. So, I want the leadership of the party to declare me the candidate of the party because I am the most popular among the aspirants.”
