A chieftain of the All Progressive Congress (APC), Osita Okechukwu, has said that the only major contender the party recognizes is the Labour Party’s presidential candidate, Peter Obi.
Okechukwu insisted that the APC is not worried about the candidacy of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar as he has lost his base.
The APC stalwart stated that his presidential candidate of the APC, Bola Tinubu remains the best presidential candidate in the upcoming election.
The Director General of the Voice of Nigeria, while speaking on Arise Television Morning Show programme on Monday argued that the former Lagos Governor has come a long way and knows the country like the back of his hand.
According to him, “As per Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, what nobody can deny is that he knows the onion. He knows the gravitas, he knows the country, and he has come a long way. And we are not bothered about PDP; for instance, Atiku has lost his base.
“We are more bothered about Peter Obi and others. Kwankwaso, we know he is qualified and highly capable, but he is riding against the zoning convention. And so, if you tell us about Peter Obi, then we can say, ok, that is where we are worried, but not about Atiku, who has lost his base.
“Atiku cannot win; I challenge those who are saying so. He cannot harvest Buhari’s 12 million votes; he cannot. He does not have Buhari’s vote bank.”
