“These two candidates you’ve mentioned, each of them can clearly defeat any candidate that comes out of the PDP except if the candidate is Atiku Abubakar.”
Meanwhile, according to Bwala, internal stability is one of the advantages the APC has on its side.
“If you look at the APC in the last one or two years, there is a marked stability and marketability in the party which is the reason you will find a lot of people coming to the party.”
While neither of them has clearly come out to state their intentions to run, there are talks that they may emerge as possible candidates.
