Yabaji Sani, the presidential candidate of the Action Democratic Party (ADP), says his chances of defeating other candidates in Saturday’s presidential election are high.
During the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) Forum, Mr Sani said the bigger parties were all troubled with so many internal crises, which made the chances of him and his party emerging victorious at the poll brighter.
“Look at the so-called big parties, they are all crumbling; what is happening with the All Progressives Congress (APC)? The party is crumbling; just look at the commotion.
He stressed that the crisis prompted states government under the APC platform to sue the federal government over Supreme Court’s ruling on naira notes.
“They say they have cabals here and there. The man who is supposed to take over from the president is also saying something is wrong with its government, the APC are fighting themselves.
“So our chances of winning are getting brighter and brighter, and God is answering our prayers,” he said.
He said another factor that would guarantee his emergence as the country’s next president was because the party had addressed the three sentiments in the choice of candidates for president and running mate.
According to him, ADP has the most balanced presidential ticket that fulfils the requirements or criterion in electing the country’s next president.
“Our party, the ADP, is sensitive to the political dynamics in Nigeria, and we have addressed the issues and sentiment in the selection of my running mate.
“The choice of my running mate is based on, number one, he’s an Igbo man, a pastor, and thirdly he is from the South.
“So by ethnicity, religion and region, ADP has addressed this issues, but if you look at a party like the APC, they even have a Muslim-Muslim ticket which is unacceptable, ” he said.
Mr Sani said Nigerians should allow the South-East and the North-Central, which had been denied the opportunity to rule in a democratic system, to win the election and provide equitable governance.
He said when the party wins the presidential seat, politicians and party members from other parties will decamp into the party.
The presidential candidate said that after the February 25 elections, the APC and PDP would no longer be relevant in the political space.
“We have seen it happen before. The same people in APC are the people in PDP because all our politicians are fair weather,” he said.
