2019: Buhari will step down if he loses or he will plunge Nigeria into political crisis, Atiku says

A former Vice President, and a presidential aspirant under the People's Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar, have insisted that if President Muhammadu Buhari loses in next year's Presidential election, he will just have to step down.


According to him, any refusal to step aside and handover power peacefully will plunge the country into political crisis, a situation the President may not want.


Speaking on a short interview on Pulse TV, the ex-Vice President said, “Buhari will have to leave power if he is voted out unless he wants to plunge this country into political crisis and I don’t believe he’ll want to do that.


“But so far, he has done badly as far as electoral processes are concerned because there have been serious breeches of fundamental electoral processes.


“I felt there was a need for someone like me who’s experienced in politics; experienced in governance; experience in business to try and restore and bring back the country on track as far as economic development was concerned.”
