According to the report, leaders of the APC in the zone are frantically pushing to put the post-primary crisis in some states behind it, come together in the coming days and plan a winning strategy that will guarantee the re-election of President Muhammadu Buhari, ahead of the PDP candidate.
A leader in the ruling APC, who was quoted in the report under the condition of anonymity gave more details. He said “The Atiku challenge is real and we can’t afford to take it for granted because south-west is where the swing votes reside.
