- President Buhari's campaign organisation in Ogun state has said that Atiku Abubakar will not win in the state
- The coordinator of the organisation, Olusegun Clement, said no presidential candidate enjoys the kind of popularity and acceptability Buhari has in the country
- According to Clement, Atiku is no threat to the reelection of the president as Buhari has performed well
The Ogun coordinator of President Muhammadu Buhari Youths Campaign Organisation (BYO), Olusegun Clement, on Thursday, February 7, stated that the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar, "stands no chance of winning the February 16 election in the state.“
Clement said this during the inauguration of members of the state executive of the organisation in Abeokuta.
He noted that the popularity and the acceptability of Buhari had shown that other presidential candidates had no chance in the state during the election.
The coordinator described Atiku as no threat to Buhari’s second term bid, adding that the president had transformed the nation in his first term so he deserved to return.
Clement, former special assistant to Governor Ibikunle Amosun on student affairs, noted that with the re-election of Buhari in the coming election, the future of youths would be secured.
He said: “For us in Ogun, what we are doing is sensitisation and mild interfacing with our people because no other presidential candidate is popular here; it is President Muhammadu Buhari all the way.
“So, what we are doing today, which is the inauguration of Buhari Youths Campaign Organisation in the state, is a means to further interface with our people in a more organised way. That is because our leader and father, President Buhari holds Ogun people in high esteem.
“This event marks the beginning of our activities in Ogun and we will continue until 48 hours to the presidential election. We will visit the nooks and crannies of the state, delivering the message of Mr president to them."
Speaking on the involvement of youths in the coming elections, Clement enjoined them to shun violence and promptly report anyone trying to use them as instrument to breakdown law and order.

He said: “Buhari remains the only and best option who will deliver the dividend of democracy to us and with him, our future is secured."
