Salihu Garba: Northerners Will Pick Atiku Over Tinubu Any Day by Montracine: 4:41pm On Nov 03, 2019
Alhaji Salihu Garba, a chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on Sunday said Atiku Abubakar, presidential candidate of the PDP will defeat Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, a former governor of Lagos and national leader of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) if they slug it out in any presidential election.

Speaking in a chat with Daily Independent, Salihu said there is no way northerners will vote for Tinubu as a presidential candidate if Atiku is also on the ballot box.

While appealing to Atiku not give up on his dream, he said after President Muhammadu Buhari, Atiku is the most popular politician in Nigeria who is acceptable to Nigerians from all parts of the country

“ I don’t know if Atiku will contest again in 2023 and I don’t know if Tinubu will also do the same. But if Atiku and Tinubu decides to slug it out as the candidate of the two leading political parties, then the election will be a walk over for Atiku because he will clear majority of the votes in the North”.

“Northerners will pick Atiku over Tinubu anyday. I also don’t think a Tinubu will defeat Atiku in the South- South and South- East. Tinubu can only make appreciable impact in the South- West” he said.

Are u the one to organize and decide the winner?

Hmmn,it's better political parties push for signing of amended electoral law now to give us a transparent result with little or no court cases after election.

Am saying this early now to avoid stories that touch that they rig election or someone colluded with the umpire to rig.

My one cent advice

Ohaneze and all SE politicians must not allow such injustice from PDP.
It should be APC- SW Vs PDP- SE not Atiku

I would be very disappointed if they don't fight.

I will love to see two of them go head to head and see who is the real king.

All these PDP chieftains are only talking from their party point of view and it doesn't represent the point of view of northerners in APC.

As far as Tinubu is on ballot paper, I dnt see any candidate who can defeat him in Nigeria

Igbos will come Here to wail as usual about APC and Tinubu but they have forgotten that they are not even seen as a potential presidential candidate.

They will forever remain servants to PDP

Indeed. Especially Igbos who, despite what they say publicly, confess his brilliance in private. They feel Tinubu is the reincarnation of Awo they hate more than anyone who has ever lived. For Tinubu to become President and then the one who delivers a modern, functional and thriving nation is the nightmare most Igbos want to escape by all means. This is why they spend all their time online attacking the man when he has not said he is even interested in running.

i agree with you Alhaji Saliyu

No problem. While agreeing with Alhaji you miss the point which is that it appears the PDP you serve slavishly is casually dismissive of you Igbos with how you appear non-existent in their 2023 plan. Why did he not say Obi would defeat Tinubu? With his talk, does it not also indicate the PDP realise the APC ticket is South-West bound? You Igbo sha. Next you are calling others slaves, cowards and such names you lot deserve the most.

You are praising Alhaji because you assume he is attacking Yorubas without realising he is dismissing Igbo and admitting Yorubas will challenge.

Indeed. Yorubas are loaded with reformational names. No jealous or vindictive megalomaniac in the mould of OBJ here. Just progressive, visionary and modern leaders all capable of taking Nigeria into a golden age. That is the fear of Igbos. Even Aregbe would be Great. To think that not one of the names we mentioned did not emerge without Tinubus help is a show of why they fear Jagaban.

Imagine when all those that can become President from one ethnic group all graduated from Tinubu University with flying colours to now be popular and trusted leaders today, while Igbo leaders remain in the wilderness with only Ekweremadu to prop up, shows you why Igbos really hate Tinubu and are jealous of Yorubas. I really pity Yorubas who don't see or appreciate what Tinubu really is to us. A blessing and gift from God.

I laugh when I read sycophantic political analysis like this. They just want to push Atiku into the race and chop his money like they did the last time.

Whatever the case is, Atiku’s candidacy is a welcome development. He should come out and contest again. At least, nobody will accuse the south west of stopping Igbo presidency this time around. They’ve willingly surrendered their party’s ticket to Atiku and it's cool by us.

As far as APC is concerned, the presidency will return to the south in 2023 and all willing southerners are welcome to contest for the ticket.

For naija, no be name dey win elections na party. in as much APC and all the necessary stakeholders of the party agree to field Tinubu, na him go win.... I trust naija politicians, they will put in place all necessary arsenals to rig him in if the northern oligarchs supports him....na then una go know say no be only server INEC no get; they no go fit locate their office again

Naija politics na padi padi...that is y these ppl and families will not let us be....they will continue with this same system until we the citizens rise up against them.

Of course Atiku will beat the drug Baron cum politician cum thug leader hands down.


If not that he used Lagos Motor park Agberos organized for him by leader of Lagos Agberos MC Oluomo to stop Igbos and Niger Deltans from voting during the last Presidential election, Atiku would have won Buhari hands down, and despite their harassments and threatening of Igbos in Lagos not to vote, Buhari still won Atiku by a small margin and Osinbajo who couldn't use thugs in his own polling unit lost his polling unit to Atiku.


APC is popular today is because of Buhari and the love almajiris in the north have for Buhari just because they see Buhari as a fanatic born again Muslim that can cut off the head of a Christian to grow Islam.


Once Buhari steps down, APC will be dead unless Buhari uses his power of incumbency to massively rig the election in favor of the drug baron!!
