The All Progressives Congress (APC) in the United Kingdom (UK) has said the emergence of Vice President Atiku Abubakar as the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has made President Muhammadu Buhari victory easy.
The group made this known in a statement on Monday by its leader, Ade Omole.
According to NAN, Omole insisted that Buhari remains the best candidate among the other candidates.
He said: “The task for 2019 election has just been made easier by the leading opposition party by electing a presidential candidate who was part of the country’s problem in the 16 years of PDP rule.
“Nigerians should be wise enough to know, therefore, that he has nothing new to bring to the table.
“While I want Nigerians to vote wisely in 2019, I assure that as we did in 2015, we will work hard again to ensure that President Buhari is re-elected.
“On behalf of Nigerians and the progressives in the Diaspora, I congratulate President Buhari for accepting his nomination to be the APC presidential candidate for 2019 election.
“His election by over 14 million registered members of the party during the APC presidential primaries held across the federation speaks volumes.”
