A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in Niger State, Dr mohammed Santuraki, on Saturday declared that the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar was a “formidable opponent.”
Speaking with News Agency of Nigeria, NAN, in Suleja, the APC chieftain insisted that whether the ruling party likes it or not Abubakar was a strong contender in 2019.
Against this backdrop, he called on the APC to put its house in order so as to sing victory songs in 2019.
He said, “Whether we would like to admit or not, the presidential candidate that the main opposition party, the PDP, settled for is a formidable opponent, even if not a credible one.
“Within a week of emerging as the presidential flag bearer, he appointed his campaign team and named his running mate.
” This to me indicates a much needed sense of urgency. We, in APC must respond in like manner. The clock is ticking. We must push the button.”
