Legit.ng notes that Atiku , who spoke through his media aide, Paul Ibe, said: “It is not political soothsayers like Oshiomhole that will determine the outcome of the elections but let it be known to him that President Buhari will not only be defeated, he will be retired to his beloved Daura in 2019.
“Does Oshiomhole think that Nigerians are fools? What will determine the direction of votes are the insecurity challenges, job losses, pain, anguish and economic strangulation that this incompetent government has subjected Nigerians to.
“For Atiku, it is about Jobs; for Buhari, it is hopelessness. For Atiku, it is about opportunities; for Buhari, it is insensitivity. For Atiku, it is about inclusiveness; For Buhari, it is clannishness. Atiku is all about Getting Nigeria Working Again.
“So, we urge Oshiomhole to keep his peace and allow Nigerians who have passed through hell in the hands of his principal, to cast their votes in a transparent, free and fair elections.”
Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported that Oshiomhole reportedly berated former president Olusegun Obasanjo over his support to his former deputy Atiku Abubakar who is the 2019 presidential candidate of the PDP.
Oshiomhole reportedly said both Obasanjo and Atiku would be divinely punished at the polls in February, 2019. He added that Atiku’s political infidelity would be his main albatross at the polls.
He said this on Tuesday, December 4, when he received women leaders of the APC from across the local governments of his home state, Edo, who were at his private office on a solidarity visit.

He asked the former president to remember he swore that God should punish him if he ever supported Atiku to be president.
Oshiomhole said: “We know there are people across the divide who are fighting back. There is a gang up by those who are used to sucking the system without adding any value but Nigerians will not allow that."
