Senator Datti Baba-Ahmed has said he has all it takes to defeat President Muhammadu Buhari in the 2019 general election.
Baba-Ahmed is vying for the position of President on the platform of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
According to him, if he emerges as the PDP candidate, Buhari would have no other option than to back down on his re-election bid.
He noted that Buhari was too old to lead Nigeria and does not have what it takes to govern a modern society.
“If I win at the primary, I will be surprised if President Muhammadu Buhari still agrees to fly the ticket of the All Progressives Congress,” he told Punch.
“He will most probably quit the race. Nigerians should expect APC to be heavily defeated in the 2019 elections.
“With me as the PDP candidate, there is no chance for Buhari. Absolutely! I am the antidote to Buhari.
“I am his complete opposite. Buhari is about the old, I am about the new. Buhari is about incapacity, I am about capacity.”
Continuing, he said that “Buhari is about the past, I am about now and the future. Buhari is about arresting and detaining people, I am about solving systemic problems.
“Buhari is about agriculture, I am about education, empowerment, industry, technology. So, we are completely different. Buhari is about religious bigotry.
“I am about gender sensitivity, ethnic and religious balance. Mark my words: ethnic and religious balance. I am the complete opposite of Buhari and he stands absolutely no chance against me.”
