Abubabakar Atiku from the North East will soon be declared winner of the PDP ticket to face waiting President Muhammadu Buhari in an expected epic battle.
The counting of votes in Port Harcourt is rounding off with Atiku leading into while Aminu Waziri Tambuwal gave hot chase. Inside sources to a top contestant said power brokers outside the convention made last minute efforts after consensus attempts failed flat yesterday evening, but all contestants agreed to support the winner.
It is clear that the need to uproot Buhari played final role and the consideration seemed to go to anyone with highest bitterness, hunger, and the force of power to confront the former military president. Atiku ticket was also seen as an attempt to give the North East a slot.
