The Special Adviser to President Muhammadu Buhari on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, has stated that the opinion of Dr. Oby Ezekwesili will not determine the winner of next year’s election.
Ezekwesili, a presidential candidate of the Allied Congress Party of Nigeria (ACPN), described Buhari and former Vice President Atiku Abubakar as “Siamese twins of failure and destruction.”
Reacting, Adesina told Channels TV that the 2019 elections is between light and darkness.
He said: “It is within Ezekwesili’s democratic right to compare Buhari to Atiku but by February next year, we would know who is running genuinely and who is a pretender.
“It is her opinion; we don’t have to agree or disagree with her, the country knows that there would be a contest and the result will be a pointer to what the country prefers. it is her opinion that does not make it the gospel.
“What we know is that the contest is ahead and going to be a contest between light and darkness.
“2019 is going to be a contest between a man whose life is plain and transparent and a man who you can’t say where he got ‘this and that.’”
