DAILY FILE – The Deputy President of the Senate, Ike Ekweremadu, says it is very difficult for anyone to accurately predict the winner of the Saturday’s presidential election because it would be a keen contest.
The senator, according to a statement by his Special Adviser on Media, Uche Anichukwu, stated this while fielding questions during an interactive radio programme on Urban 94.5 FM Radio, Enugu on Saturday.
Asked to specifically predict the party whose candidate would win the presidential election, Ekweremadu said the situation on the ground at the moment cannot guarantee an accurate prediction.
He said, “Let me tell you the exact thing about what is happening presently. Ahead of the presidential election, no one can surely say that this party would win or this candidate would win. But in 2015 or 2016, nobody gave PDP a chance and today PDP has bounced back to life.
“So, when you watch the rallies, you say oh, this is a huge crowd for the APC (All Progressives Congress) in Adamawa or that was a huge PDP (Peoples Democratic Party) crowd in Katsina, the home of the President.
“That is an interesting thing and that is exactly what we worked for and we are able to see Nigerians participating. So, I am happy when I see this close contest and by the grace of God, PDP will win,” he added
