According to the report, “the preference for either Ekweremadu or Obi by the former Customs boss who has since the days of the SDP and NRC in 1993 nurtured the intention to be President is not unconnected with their intimidating credentials, their exposure, acumen, extensive political networks, acceptability and for being the bridge between the old and new generation among other compelling factors.”

Although Atiku has not formally declared his presidential ambition, there is strong speculation that the former vice president will do so soon.

Meanwhile, a chieftain of the PDP Chichi Obi on Sunday, January 28, in Lagos state declared that Atiku remains the best alternative for the 2019 presidency.

Daily Trust reports that Obi also said Atiku was the only presidential hopeful the APC was afraid of 2015, saying without him, the ruling party would simply go to bed because 2019 would be a no-contest.
