Atiku Abubakar, presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), says President Muhammadu Buhari has already lost his re-election bid.
He said this in Ibadan, Oyo state capital, while flagging of his campaign in the south-west.
“Buhari must go! Buhari must go! Buhari must go!” he said as his crowd of supporters roared.
He urged his supports and other Nigerians never to believe in the promises of the Buhari-led All Progressives Congress (APC).
He said the best of education, democracy Nigeria has experienced were during the reign of PDP, urging Nigerians to vote in the opposition party.
“Let me tell you that today, I say before you that within six months, we shall start the process of restructuring of this country,” Abubakar said.
“Ladies and gentlemen, I have lived here, so I am not a stranger. So, therefore, never again believe in APC.
“In the next two months, you will be required to choose your next president, please, take your decision carefully.
“The best democracy we enjoyed in Nigeria was under PDP. In 2015, APC promised 12 million jobs but today, we have not seen the jobs.
“Buhari has gone. Thank you my brothers and sisters. Since the return of democracy in 1999, the best we have in Nigeria is during the PDP.
“The best education we have was during the PDP. My brothers and sisters, I stand before you, I promise, everyone of you know that I chaired the best economic team in this country. If you give me this opportunity again we shall invest more in education.
“We shall return Nigeria to prosperity in 2019. I headed the best economy team in Nigeria. When we get to government in 2019, we will continue to give you best education.
“One of the best policy for Nigeria is restructuring and we will do it when we get to government. Don’t believe APC lies again. Within 6 months, we will reposition Nigeria. Don’t sell your vote and don’t sell your PVC. Buhari must go”.
