As the count down for whoever will lead the opposition in Nigeria moves to the final stage, some revelations are being made.
For instance, a chairmanship aspirant of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), Tunde Adeniran, has disclosed that the South West may present a consensus candidate to represent the zone at the December 9 convention of the party.
Adeniran, who is an academic gave the indication during his visit to canvass votes from the 59 delegates of the party in Ondo state. Asked why it was becoming difficult for all the aspirants from the zone to agree on a consensus candidate, Adeniran said: “We are talking among ourselves. l am sure we will get it right before the convention. God does not make mistakes. I am sure he will step in.” Adeniran, however, denied insinuations of being sponsored by any politician or political group saying it is a deliberate attempt to provoke his aspiration.
He said: “This is just propaganda to pull me down and provoke me because they all know I possess the potential to turn around the fortune of PDP. “To me, this is a wicked insult and the greatest insult.
Nobody is sponsoring my aspiration and I want to tell you that I stand for the truth, equity and fairness. This should not be used to further destabilize the party. “I am not being sponsored by Buruji Kashamu, Atiku Abubakar or Ibrahim Babangida or anybody.
The former Education Minister said that if the PDP gets it right in December by electing him, the party will regain the power at the center and send the ruling APC packing.
