I Am Not Stepping Down For Atiku – Olawepo, Peoples Trust Presidential Candidate




People’s Trust (PT), presidential candidate, Mr. Gbenga Olawepo-Hashim Tuesday disclaimed speculations of his imminent withdrawal from the election in favour of Peoples Democratic Party, PDP’s Atiku Abubakar.

Olawepo-Hashim who spoke at a campaign rally in Akure, Ondo State said that no fewer than 70 percent of Nigerian voters are yet undecided some 11 days to the presidential election and hence his determination to continue in the race.

A statement issued by his media office declared that Nigerians should reject the two major candidates President Muhammadu Buhari and Atiku given that the two parties have failed Nigerians.

The presidential candidate according to the statement was accompanied by the director-general of his campaign, Alhaji Habu Fari, a former minister of transport.

“Some few days to election more than 70 percent of the electorates are still wondering who they are going to vote for. They have been examine the candidates they are going to vote for and what these candidates promised to offer and among all the alternative parties, the PT is the biggest. But i can tell you that this election is still very open even though its ten days to the election,” the candidate was quoted as saying. 

“This is one of the reasons I said if elected we will form a government of National unity which will include the good people in the APC and PDP.”

 Olawepo-Hashim further said:  “Nigeria is a very interesting country, and I don’t know any country where other parties candidate are pressured to step down. I think it’s a coinage here, because in a multi-party democracy, nobody steps down, you win some seat and on the basis of this you can form coalition based on programme after the election.

“The presidential election is not about party but about candidates and the future of this country and the two parties have failed in that regard. But we give hope that if we come in, Nigeria will be better.”
