‘The Candidates’ Fallout: Atiku At His Best Against Kadaria Ahmed- Secondus
The Chairman of the People’s Democratic Party, Uche Secondus, has said that he believes veteran journalist Kadaria Ahmed brought out the best in Atiku Abubakar.
This is in reference to the political forum aired on NTA dubbed ‘The Candidates’ where the Presidential candidates of both the APC and PDP have been interviewed on policies and plans for the Nigerian people ahead of the 2019 elections.
Secondus who was speaking in Delta state, said that Buhari was well outperformed by Atiku.
“But when she fired our president (Atiku), the best came out of him. You can see the president who can engage, and by the special grace of God, everything that you need; employment, food, better economy, you will see in Atiku,” he said.
He also charged the electoral body, INEC, to abide by the constitution in its handling of affairs during the elections.
“Today, by your mandate, we warn INEC, and we believe there are good people in INEC. We know that government is pressurising INEC to rig this election. If they rig this election, they are looking for war,” he added.
“If they want peace, they should not rig this election. We want to also advice our security agencies, we know there are good people there, protecting lives and property.
“We believe that they would obey the constitution, not to break it like Mr. President (Buhari) is breaking our laws. If they break it, what are they looking for? War.”
