Former member of the House of Representatives and former speaker, Plateau State House of Assembly, George Daika says President Muhammadu Buhari will be defeated if he contests in 2019, alongside former Lagos State governor, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu. Daika said President Buhari’s re-election bid in 2019 does not pose a threat to the Peoples Democratic Party as Nigerians were tired of his inability to fulfil promises. On reports that Tinubu would be Buhari’s running mate come 2019, Daika said he would never win as it was a ‘dead ticket on arrival’, describing the selection as worst decision of APC if taken.
“Buhari/Tinubu is already a ticket dead on arrival, that will be the worst decision and we are praying for that insensitive arrangement. We are waiting for whatever they want to do and Nigerians are prepared and ready to change the negative change for a better change that is why over 10, 000 APC members decamped recently in Katsina to PDP and many more are still coming.
“If Buhari is contesting election in 2019, I think that should not be a problem for us as a party; with his inability to fulfil any of his campaign promises, the hunger and hardship Nigerians are going through, it will be easy for PDP to push Buhari away if the right candidate emerges. I want to assure you that Buhari will find it extremely difficult, it is not going to be like 2015 where they used propaganda and all sorts of lies to deceived Nigerians against the PDP.
