The Senate Minority Leader, Senator Biodun Olujimi, has said that Nigerians have no credible alternative to the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar, in next year’s presidential poll.
Olujimi, who is the PDP senatorial candidate for Ekiti South, stated this on Wednesday.
Represented by her campaign director, Sanya Adesua, the lawmaker insisted the citizens have no reason to re-elect President Muhammadu Buhari, who is All Progressives Congress’ (APC) presidential candidate, on the basis of poor performance.
Olujimi, who said Nigerians should vote in 2019 based on antecedent and what candidates were capable of delivering, said: “President Buhari does not have anything to campaign with as his achievements in the last four years. Maybe that is why he has been finding it difficult to address the citizens.
“The situation in the country at present requires a leader with vision to put things right. That is where the PDP presidential candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, comes in.
“For now, we have a president who cannot address Nigerians. We have a president with identity crisis. Evaluate the Buhari-led government for the past four years – look at the condition of roads across the country, look at electricity supply, consider water situation and the growing insecurity – you discover there is no reason to vote for Buhari.”
