The presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar, has disclosed a recent event that touched him very well to the point of shedding tears as it borders on his presidential ambition and chances of victory.

According to Daily Trust, Atiku said that he was moved to tears over his endorsement by Northern and Southern elders in the country as their candidate for the February 16 polls. Atiku, in a statement on Sunday by his media office, said the endorsement has further given him more courage to work hard, win the election and return Nigeria to its lost glory.

Ohanaeze Ndigbo, Northern Elders Forum, Pan-Niger Delta Forum and Middle Belt Forum on Sunday unanimously endorsed Atiku’s candidature in Abuja, less than two weeks to the polls. Atiku said he would run a properly federated Nigeria through constitutional reforms to bring out the best from all sections of the country to make Nigeria work if given the mandate. “I am moved to tears that in the midst of deep divisions and deliberate use of instrumentalities of state to set our people against themselves in the last three and a half years, responsible and respected leaders across Nigeria have agreed to come together for the purpose of endorsing my candidature for the February 16, 2019 presidential election.

“I profusely thank our leaders across the country who have created this wonderful moment for us to come to the table of brotherhood. Once again, and in the words of our old National Anthem, we can proudly sing: ‘Though tribes and tongues may differ, in brotherhood we stand.’ “This has buoyed me to lead a Pan-Nigerian team that will give practical interpretation to what has been done by the time I take leadership of our country, by the grace of Allah, on May 29, 2019,” Atiku said.

The leading opposition party said there were strong indications that Buhari would lose the election, arguing that he has lost grounds in the North West which was his major stronghold including the North Central,  North East and other geo-political zones.

Addressing a press conference on Sunday in Abuja, the Director of Media and Publicity of the PDP Presidential Campaign Organisation, Kola Ologbondiyan, said the party would resist any attempt by the ruling party to rig the polls.

Ologbondiyan said the PDP allowed a free and fair election in 2015, respected the will of the people and handed over power to President Buhari, without any shenanigans that would have denied him victory, adding that he should do same.

“Today, the APC and the Buhari Presidency have become uncontrollably feverish over the overwhelming acceptance gained by Atiku Abubakar in all the geo-political zones, particularly in the North West states of Sokoto, Kebbi, Zamfara, Kano, Katsina, Kaduna and Jigawa states, hitherto considered as President Buhari’s political stronghold.

“Having lost genuine followership in the North West, the North Central, the North East and a greater part of the South West, all of which gave them a ride to victory in 2015, and having no prospects in the South East and South South, the APC and the Buhari Presidency are now seeking ways to derail our electoral process.
