2019: Atiku Promises To Concede Defeat

The Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party(PDP) has said he would concede defeat if he loses the 2019 elections, provided the exercise is adjudged free and fair.

Atiku made this known when he appeared on ‘TheCandidates’ a televised town hall hosted by journalist Kadaria Ahmed on NTA Wednesday night. Peter Obi, his running mate appeared with him.

Atiku’s response appeared different from the one offered by Buhari when he was asked the same question when he appeared on an earlier instalment of the programme earlier this month.

Ms Ahmed asked Mr Buhari whether he would concede, but rather than say categorically whether or not he would, the president gave a response that was widely deemed non-committal.

Although he made reference to his previous presidential election losses, he insisted those happened because he was cheated, and not because citizens did not vote for him.
