I’m personally amazed at how quickly Atiku has moved since the primaries.
Our position at that time was clear, steady and solid.
Then came the time to choose a new Chairman and the SW bungling of a position that had been zoned to Agbaje which led to the emergence of Prince Uche Secondus as Chairman - many again felt that PDP would collapse.
The question now is that Atiku is moving too slow - and we explain that it’s part of the political process towards victory.
Many may not know but some felt Atiku was behind a move to replace the Kano PDP gubernatorial flagbearer who is a Kwankwaso disciple with someone else - that had to be doused.
Some of them are mulling going to join Shekarau in APC.
By choosing Saraki as the DG of his campaign, Atiku delivered a solid death-blow to any misunderstanding about influence within the party.
It’s a deep issue of balance.
This man is an experienced political player.
Atiku got through to him at 4am the following day and that tension was quickly doused - this is mainly the period of harmonisation.
By this time towards 2015, Buhari hadn’t even emerged as his party’s flagbearer.
This time, we have three full months of campaign and spending.
The campaign will test him and the PDP in every single way.
But that people are so eager is a good thing.
