The Buhari Media Organisation (BMO) has today urged Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential candidate, to consider throwing in the towel to avoid defeat in the Feb. 16 polls. Chairman of the group Niyi Akinsiju and Secretary, Mr Cassidy Madueke, on Friday in Abuja urged the PDP presidential candidate to forget about contesting to avoid an embarrassing defeat. The statement was in reaction to recent defection of four PDP stalwarts to the All Progressive Congress (APC). The organization described the defection of Bauchi State Publicity Secretary of PDP, Yayanuwa Zainabari, as shocking and a big slap to the party ahead of the general elections. It noted that the way Abubakar and his party were daily losing support from prominent members to the opposition was unbecoming. According to the group, even the PDP cannot deny that the loss of its Deputy National Chairman, Babayo Gamawa, among others, to the APC is quite massive. “We have nothing but sympathy for Atiku at this time that he has lost some of his trusted supporters who have abandoned him to team up with President Muhammadu Buhari. “Nothing could be more demoralising than losing the number two man of your party with few days to what is almost certain to be his last attempt to clinch a seat that he had coveted since the 1990s. “Babayo Gamawa is not only PDP’s Deputy National Chairman, but also a member of the party’s Presidential Campaign Council from the same North-East geo-political zone as the former Vice President. “We at BMO believe that it may be ideal for the PDP candidate to pull out of the presidential race to save himself from what is almost certain to be a crushing defeat,”it said.
