Presidential Nomination of the PDP and the 2019 Presidential Election

The presidential ticket of the PDP has been sold to the highest bidder. The most desperate of them all.

President Muhammadu Buhari and Alhaji Atiku Abubakar.

The problem of the presidential candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar is he is disconnected from the grassroots and he does not have the political charisma and grassroots movement of President Muhammadu Buhari.

During the 2015 presidential election campaign, PDP said the grassroots movement of President Buhari was moving like hurricane. Then they should be ready for the tsunami in the 2019 presidential election campaign. Because, the 2019 presidential election will be decided by the grassroots population of Nigerian voters and not by the votes of delegates and political elites or noisemakers on the internet.
Presidential elections in Nigeria are won and lost at the grassroots.

Nigerians don't need fire brigade political opportunists of the opposition parties who don't have any social responsibility for the sustainable human development of majority of the masses.
The internet presidential candidate,  Sowore of Sahara Reporters who cannot point at any significant contribution to the development of Nigerian masses, except his regular political gossip and rumour mongering on the internet and a motivational speaker without any relationship with the grassroots thinks making motivational speeches is the best qualification for the highest political office in Nigeria. I even wonder why I am not contesting since I have done 100% more for Nigeria than these great pretenders with my worldwide recognition as one of the leading champions of the education of the more than 6 million underprivileged girls out of school in Nigeria, major organiser and cosponsor of the annual United Nations' International Day of the Girl Child in 2013 and 2015 in Nigeria and the Girl Rising Education Project in Kano is the testimonial for being Captain of Girl Rising in Nigeria in 2013. And also one of the foremost leading global promoters of Nollywood and the Nigerian film industry as the Publisher and Editor of the NOLLYWOOD MIRROR®Series. At only 21, I produced the only Nigerian family planning booklets in the major languages and at 25, I was a national program consultant for UNICEF Nigeria in 1988. So, compared to these political opportunists of the opposition, I am more qualified to contest for the Office of the President than the fire brigade presidential candidates.

Alhaji Bamanga Tukur.
Senator Bukola Saraki.

Do you know that when I was working for the presidential campaign of Alhaji Bamanga Tukur in 1990 when I was in my 20s, (as special assistant to the Director of Publicity, Hon. Babatunde Stanley Ereola from Ede, Osun state), Senator Bukola Saraki was still collecting pocket money from his father,  Oloye Abubakar Olusola Saraki (17 May 1933 – 14 November 2012).
Remove the political legacy of his father, Bukola Saraki has no political pedigree to be challenging the national leadership of President Muhammadu Buhari who has been committed to the nation building of Nigeria from his youth as at age 21, Buhari was commissioned a second lieutenant and appointed Platoon Commander of the Second Infantry Battalion in Abeokuta, Nigeria. From November 1963 to January 1964; at 33 as Governor of the Northeastern State from 1 August, 1975 – 3 February 1976; at 34 as Governor of Borno State from 3 February, 1976 – 15 March, 1976 and at 34, he was appointed as the Federal Commissioner of Petroleum and Natural Resources from March, 1976 – June,  1978.

Can Senator Bukola Saraki tell us what he contributed to the nation building of a New Nigeria since his youth apart from collecting regular pocket money from  his rich father?
Without his father, he would not have been governor of Kwara state and a senator of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
