The deputy Senate President Ike Ekweremadu, has said it is difficult to predict who amongst the presidential candidate of the People’s Democratic Party, PDP, and that of the All Progressive Congress, APC, will win the February 16th, presidential election.
Ekweremadu stated this while fielding questions during an interactive radio programme on Urban 94.5 FM Radio, Enugu on Saturday.
When asked to specifically predict the party whose candidate would win the presidential election, Ekweremadu said situation on 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
