The Minister of Interior, Abdulrahman Dambazau, has said President Muhammadu Buhari will easily defeat former Vice President Atiku Abubakar in the 2019 presidential election.
Speaking through his aide, Aliyu Gebi, the minister said while Buhari had used his position in and out of office to better the lives of people, Atiku had not impacted lives outside his immediate circle.
He said: “In this race (2019), there is only one gladiator and that gladiator is the current President. So, there is no contender. (Atiku) by saying this is the toughest election in the history of Nigeria, yes toughest for him, certainly not for the President.
“As far as I’m concerned, this will be the easiest election in the history of Nigeria as far as President Muhammadu Buhari and the APC are concerned; he (Atiku) will not even win Adamawa much less Taraba or Gombe and then come to Bauchi.
“We will ensure we do whatever we can, this will be the last Atiku’s outing and he will suffer a bloodied nose by the grace of God.”
