Popular activist and convener of a group known as Concerned Nigerians, Deji Adeyanju, has pointed out why he thinks that Atiku Abubakar, the Candidate of the People Democratic Party (PDP), at the 2019 elections will lose against President Buhari of the All Progressives Congress (APC) at the ongoing presidential elections tribunal.
Adeyanju had claimed that Atiku will not defeat the President because he was in control of the three arms of Government.
The activist had stated this position on Wednesday via a tweet which he made on Wednesday as he said that the activists are in the President’s “pocket and the Legislature under his feet”.
See the tweet below:
Atiku is not coming anywhere.
Buhari controls the 3 arms of government. The courts are in his pocket. The legislature is under his feet. Stop fooling yourself.
Nigerians must have sense by force.

In like manner, Lauretta Onochie, a Personal Assistant on Social Media to President Buhari said that Atiku would be defeated at the ongoing tribunal.
She said that President Buhari’s defence should not last for more than an hour because Atiku and the PDP “made it a walk in the park.”
According to Onochie:“PRESIDENTIAL TRIBUNAL: @MBuhari to open defence against @atiku on Tuesday
“Me: That shouldn’t take more than an hour or so. Atiku and @OfficialPDPNig
“Team made it a walk in the park. For sure, #AtikuIsNotComing.”
President Buhari had opened his defence on Tuesday in the petition which was filed by Atiku and the Peoples’ Democratic Party challenging the victory of Buhari in the February 23 polls.
