APC Primaries UPDATE: Kwankwaso Steps Down for Buhari, Atiku Desperately Reaches Out to Delegates

Reports have it that Kwankwaso has been persuaded to step down for Buhari, which he agreed, but will still put up an appearance without putting up a fight at the convention.

Recent update provides that 12 APC governors have reached a final agreement to support Muhammadu Buhari, while his counterpart, Atiku Abubakar, is reaching out directly to the delegates.  Atiku, on this part, is basing his calculations on the fact that APC governors control only 14 states and their influence in the remaining 22 states is not strong.

Report add that Atiku has zeroed in on delegates from 16 states which they consider winnable: Adamawa, Sokoto, Kebbi, Niger, Benue, Plateau, Bauchi, Jigawa, Taraba, Yobe, Delta, Abia, Ebonyi, Enugu, Ekiti and Ondo ? as well as the FCT. In Atiku’s camp, the calculation is to deal directly with the delegates, even from states controlled by pro-Buhari governors.
