Femi Adesina, a presidential spokesperson, has insisted that the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar, will not win the presidential election even if witches and wizards endorse him.
The presidential aide made the statement shortly after reports emerged that Atiku had secured an endorsement from five socio-cultural groups in the country as well as another endorsement from a sect called the Association of White Witches in Nigeria (AWWN), which accorded support to the PDP presidential candidate after several meetings which they claimed to have had on Obudu mountain and Zuma rock.
Adesina who dismissed the endorsements writing via his Twitter handle on Monday, February 4, he said the PDP presidential candidate will fail during the elections, no matter whose endorsement he gets.
“NEF, PANDEF, Afenifere, others endorse Atiku. Let witches and wizards also endorse, if they like. The harder they come, the harder they fail. No beating the Nigerian people,” he tweeted.
Meanwhile, the presidential ambition of Muhammadu Buhari has received a boost with a reported endorsement by retired military officers in the Nigerian Army, the Navy and Air Force.
A report by Daily Sun says those who endorsed Buhari for a second term include 13 Major Generals, eight Air Vice Marshal (AVM), two Rear Admirals (RA), 12 Brigadier Generals, nine Air commodores, eight Commodores and 17 former military administrators.
The report said some of those who attended the event where the endorsement held include former President Goodluck Jonathan’s minister of police affairs, Navy Capt Caleb Olubolade, and former Chief of the Naval Staff (CNS), Admiral Jubril Ayinla.
