Talking Politics: 10 Key Reasons Why Buhari Will Beat Atiku Silly In 2019

1) The international community will never support Atiku, if America has placed you on their corruption watch list, no other country will touch you with a ten foot poll. The support of the international community is very important because they provide you with the information needed to stay ahead of your opponent as well as technical support too.
.
2) The APC will bring everything it has against Atiku including federal might. This will be the first time that the federal might will be used for a righteous course and nobody would shed a tear.
.
3) Only PDP members will support and vote for Atiku. The apolitical masses who hate Buhari but who want this country to move forward will lose interest in the election and stay at home, leaving only APC and PDP members and Buharists to slug it out. And trust me, APC is more than them, and no party can win a seating president without the support of the masses.
.
4) The whole south knows that a vote for Atiku means keeping power in the north for 8 years which will destabilize Nigeria. Forget the empty promise of doing it for only one term, we’ve heard that before when they’re looking for power, but we all know a power hungry man like Atiku will never honour that promise. So the South East leaders especially will pitch their tent with Buhari’s 4 years than Atiku’s 8 years.
.
5) Buhari will win North West, he has always won there, even against Yar’Adua in 2007. He will win North East, including Adamawa where Atiku is from. Yobe and Borno where Modu Sheriff is from loves him like mad. Buhari will win every single State in the South West, even the PDP knows this hence their choice of deputy from the south east. In the South East, he will win IMO, Ebonyi, and Anambra where Obaino has promised to work for him. He will divide the votes in Abia and Enugu. Buhari will win Edo and Rivers State in the South South where the APC national chairman and Buhari campaign DG is from. Akwaibom is 50/50 right now so he will win there too with additional forces. Ben Ayade is a Buharist, so Buhari will get a lot of votes there too. North Central is a battleground but luckily they don’t have votes.
.
6) Buhari is simply more sellable and popular than Atiku. For any candidate to win an incumbent, that candidate must be loved and widely celebrated by the masses like Buhari was in 2015. Unfortunately for Atiku, even his biggest supporter knows he’s a thief hence following him sluggishly.
.
7) Buhari has the power of incumbency which means he can offer more to woe power brokers to his side than Atiku who will only give watery promises. As the days run by, PDP and the opposition generally will lose more players to the APC.
.
8) Buhari has both old and new vibrant players supporting him, while Atiku has old and retired warhorses. Buhari’s new vibrant team has won 5 elections since Buhari took over, PDP won one, while APGA won 1. Buhari’s vibrant forces are unstoppable right now.
.
9) Those who win election in Nigeria are governors backed by federal might. When Buhari took over, he decided to jettison lawmakers and work with governors. Buhari gave them bailouts, Paris Refund, debts owed them on federal roads, and several other supports. This is why the governors and ministers control the APC today, they’re the nucleus of what some refer to as the cabal. Unlike in 2015 when Jonathan had problem with governors, Buhari enjoys their support and love and they will take his election as their own.
.
10) Many people think that simply by bringing a northern candidate that Buhari’s vote in the north will be divided, which would give advantage to the PDP candidate who is expected to win in the south. Those people needs to wake up, while Buhari got 15,000 votes in Rivers State in 2015 against PDP’s 1.8 million, such blatant writing of results will never happen again. The PDP will not only fail to get those type of votes in the south, but the APC stands a greater chance to win many southern States this time around.
