In that capacity they have a feeling of qualification to these instruments of Express that they couldn’t completely control this time since President Muhammadu Buhari demanded a dimension plain field for all.

“We exhort the PDP that as resistance party for a long time, we have been down this street previously. This isn’t an ideal opportunity to forfeit the nation for individual aspiration. On the off chance that they believe they have lost (as their announcement plainly shows), Alhaji Atiku Abubakar must get his telephone to make that well known call to President Muhammadu Buhari. The world is watching him as are Nigerians.

“At long last, we ask INEC, Nigerians and our global companions not to be influenced by these juvenile jokes of the PDP.
