Director General, Atiku Presidential Campaign Organization, APCO, Otumba Gbenga Daniel, has noted that the former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar will win the 2019 presidential election.
The former Ogun state Governor hinged his confidence on what he described as the desire of most Nigerians to “change the change”.
The Ogun-born politician spoke in a chat with newsmen in Lagos on Tuesday.
Speaking about the chances of the Wazirin Adamawa, he said: “Nigeria is a very complex country and what we need is a system that works. That’s why you see that countries where the system works give less regard to persons in office.
“Nigerians must vote for a candidate who understands the new world economy. Gone are the days government put money here and there; just put in place necessary structures and investors will bring their money.
“The oil we so much depend on, those who buy are looking at other sources. So we must support someone who will create an environment for venture capitalists.
“He is not a fundamentalist but a man who accommodates and respects everyone’s religious views and leanings. We need somebody who is widely exposed, versatile and understands the country.
Quite a number of people want to be president but don’t even know their state well, let alone having the grasp of the problems of Nigeria. Of all those in the race, Atiku is above everyone.
“We were in Delta, Taraba, Bayelsa, Adamawa among other states; we know what we heard. Also remember that earlier in the month, PDP and about 38 parties came together. The alliance is the first of the kind in the country so 2019 will be decisive.”
Responding to a question by DAILY POST on Atiku’s choice of running mate, Daniel replied: “We have not gotten to that stage. No region or individual has been picked. It’s still open”.
