If you want to predict who is going to win the 2019 elections, you have to mine the available data. As at this point, forget the perceived hype that Atiku is generating, the tide is not really turning against Buhari, except more people change their minds before the election day.
Have you observed that Tinubu has been unusually quiet? Tinubu, a brilliant political strategist, must be busy mining and strategizing with his trusted aides.
And they (APC and Buhari) have the number, unless Atiku can flip those states that Buhari easily won. As more startling revelations are made, before the election day, some Nigerians might base their decisions on this idiom: “Better the devil you know than the devil you don’t.”
Listen, relative to Buhari, ATIKU is starting from the scratch. Buhari has a massive war chest, which Atiku must now try to match. Does Atiku have money? Yes, but he doesn’t have access to the kind of money at the disposal of Buhari. This election is going to be so ugly.
