The Arewa Youth Consultative Forum, AYCF, has predicted the outcome of the 2019 presidential election.
Speaking with DAILY POST on Friday, President of the AYCF, Alhaji Yerima Shettima, said Nigerians were tired of the present political settings and have shown willingness to change leadership.
According to him, even though the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, does not have money to buy crowd at campaign venues, Nigerians have shown that they wanted a better life than what is obtainable at the moment.
Asked to predict the outcome of the February 16 presidential poll, Shettima, said, “Atiku is winning. We are sure because we have worked enough and people are now wiser. In a free and fair election, the present leader will not be a match for Atiku.”
On whether the crowd attending Buhari’s rallies is intimidating to him, the youth leader added, “Did you see the crowd in Katsina yesterday? Were those people paid to come out? Does Atiku have money to give to governors to pay those crowd? Now you compare to somebody who has so much money to share around to governors, can you compare?
“And at what point did we descend so low that elections are being determined by crowd? At what point did we descend that low. Okay, let’s go to the polls by February then let’s see.”
