I’m still in the race, says pres­i­den­tial can­di­date

The Punch - - POLITICS TODAY - Tobi Aworinde, Abuja

THE pres­i­den­tial can­di­date of KOWA Party, Dr Adesina Fag­benro-by­ron, has crit­i­cised the process that re­sulted in the adop­tion of the Peo­ples Demo­cratic Party’s can­di­date, Al­haji Atiku Abubakar, as the con­sen­sus can­di­date of the Coali­tion of United Po­lit­i­cal Par­ties.

He de­scribed the process as faulty and du­bi­ously ex­e­cuted.

The pres­i­den­tial can­di­date, via his Twit­ter ac­count, @SFB2019, said, “KOWA Party stands for trans­parency and ac­count­abil­ity and we con­sider the CUPP process largely flawed and quite du­bi­ously ex­e­cuted. We had noth­ing to do with it and are not aware.

“The PDP’S cup has fi­nally run over. No mat­ter the chances Nige­ri­ans give them, they will al­ways fail us.

“Faulty for the CUPP, hav­ing adopted Atiku Abubakar, the pres­i­den­tial can­di­date for the PDP, as its con­sen­sus can­di­date with­out due process. Please, be as­sured that KOWA Party was not party to this fi­nal de­ci­sion and we are in the race to win.”
