A senator representing Nasarawa north senatorial district at the Senate, Senator Abdullahi Adamu, has said that the former vice president and candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar, would suffer a serious defeat during the forthcoming presidential election.
Adamu in an exclusive interview with the Leadership, said that a humiliating defeat is awaiting the former ruling party on February 16.
Legit.ng gathered that Adamu said that Atiku knows from the bottom of his heart that he could not defeat President Muhammadu Buhari in any election.
Speaking on the notion that Atiku's emergence as the PDP presidential candidate has caused a major concern for the APC, Adamu said: "Atiku knows from the bottom of his heart and from his conscience that this presidency is not for him.
"I don’t share God’s powers or what he will do tomorrow but if you go by what Atiku is, his antecedents in politics and how he has run from pillar to post so far in his career and see what he has done when he was vice president, but God doesn’t work like that.
"God does not work with people who want blessing by hook or crook. I believe that Nigerians have seen the stuff that some of these people parading themselves as PDP leaders are made of. We were with them, I was with them until about 2013.
"I was one of the founding fathers of the PDP until they missed the road and they are not likely to get back on the road. They are not behaving as if they have learn any lesson yet. We will teach them lesson in the democratic processes we have adopted.
The senator debunked the insinuation that the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) was planning to rig the forth coming elections for the ruling APC.
He said: "From the few staggered elections we have had, it will give you sufficient reasons to believe that, the PDP is losing hope, the PDP in the words of Williams Shakespeare said, “cowards die many times before their death."
"PDP is displaying those traits. They see defeat coming their way at the general elections. We do know they are only crying wolf and Nigerians are showing their support to the APC. Nigerians are indicating both in words and deeds that the APC is the party to beat in the forthcoming general elections.
"I’m not saying everything is going well for the APC, we have our own problems but in spite of our problems, we are working to ensure that we succeed in the forthcoming general elections.
"We will defeat the PDP and they PDP know so. What they are hoping is that, Nigerians will forget easily, the extent of the damage they inflicted on the nation, the ra.pe of our democratic institutions, the ra.pe to our commonwealth and they feel that, with Buhari’s three years or more in power, Nigerians have forgotten what they went through in their hands.
"We have not forgotten the cheap money they were throwing around, they behaved like Robin Hood who robbed the rich to give the poor. In their view, the poor are their constituents, they are their supporters. So, we understand the angle they are coming from and we believe by the grace of God, we shall have victory."
