Atiku must face our candidates for screening, CUPP members insist

Some members of the Coalition of United Political Parties have expressed their opposition to the adoption of the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, former Vice-President Atiku Abubakar, as the consensus candidate of the CUPP without undergoing screening with candidates of other parties in the alliance.

Also, SUNDAY PUNCH learnt on Saturday that the PDP and 38 other parties that constitute the CUPP would meet on Tuesday.

The parties, in separate interviews with SUNDAY PUNCH, noted that the alliance was still in effect and that each presidential candidate should be given a chance to emerge the standard-bearer of the coalition.

The National Secretary of the Alliance for Democracy, Pastor Fasogbon Akinboye, told The PUNCH correspondent that the CUPP arrangement was on course.
