A chieftain of the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP), Buba Galadima, has predicted that Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), will not win the 2023 election.
Galadima made the prediction on Thursday night in an interview on Channels Television’s.
According to the former All Progressives Congress (APC) chieftain, Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State, whom Atiku is looking to reconcile with, controls 14 states in Nigeria.
PDP is not even on the ballot because its strength is in the south-east, which has been eroded by Peter Obi (Labour Party presidential candidate). The next strength of PDP is in the south-south. With Wike never supporting Atiku, the south-south is gone,” Galadima said.
And Wike is not only strong in the southeast, Wike commands 14 states of Nigeria for PDP.
All of them follow him: five serving governors, nine gubernatorial candidates outside the PDP controlled states, all belong to Wike.
It is what Wike decides that will happen in the PDP.
The north-east is completely Rabiu Kwankwaso (NNPP presidential candidate) because he will win Taraba, Adamawa, Gombe, and Bauchi, including the governorship.
He will win the north-east, north-central, and will win the north-west.
All combined, they have over 50-something million voters.
Kwankwaso will poach the south-south, south-east, and part of the south-west.
