Atiku’s South-West incursion unsettles APC

Governors and leaders of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the South-West are currently strategising on ways to mitigate the incursion of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, into the zone ahead of February 16, 2019 election.

New Telegraph gathered that the APC, which is in control of the six states in the South-West, is frantically pushing to put the post-primary crisis in some states behind it, come together in the coming days and eke out a winning strategy that will guarantee the re-election of President Muhammadu Buhari, ahead of the PDP candidate.

A leader in the ruling APC, who chose to be anonymous, said: “The Atiku challenge is real and we can’t afford to take it for granted because South-West is where the swing votes reside.
