The Vice Presidential candidate of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in the upcoming election, Peter Obi, says Nigeria will literally crash and burn if incumbent President Muhammadu Buhari secures a second term in office.
“We are on a roadshow trying to send our message to Nigerians. We are telling them that the election is about the future of our children,” Punch quotes Atiku as telling journalists during a campaign roadshow event in Awka, Anambra State.
“We are encouraged by our endorsement everywhere, not only in the south-east because the people have seen the reality of the moment.
“They have seen that the present government doesn’t have the capacity to govern Nigeria.
“They have seen that this country will collapse under Buhari if allowed to continue. We have a country that is collapsing. So, everybody should be part of this endorsement”, Obi added.
Obi, 57, was unveiled as Atiku’s running mate on Friday, October 12, 2018.
A former governor of Southeastern Anambra State, Obi has often been accused by the governing APC of churning out fake statistics during debates, town-halls and interview shows.
