IT IS A DONE DEAL!!! Olusegun Obasanjo Teams Up With Saraki, Dumps Dankwambo, Picks A Top Northern Senator For President In 2019 

Emerging report reaching Post-Nigeria, indicates that Rabiu Kwankwaso, a serving Senator in the 8th Senate, will be the Presidential candidate of the Olusegun Obasanjo-led Coalition, ahead of the 2019 Presidential election.

Sources said that despite Obasanjo’s recent claim that he has no preferred candidate, the former President had prior to the launch of his movement consulted widely particularly with General Ibrahim Babangida, General Abdulasami Abubabar, and General Aliyu Gusau, and zeroed down on Kwankwaso as the candidate with the popularity to challenge Buhari in the North West, especially in Kano, where Buhari has millions of die-hard supporters.

Already, Obasanjo and Babangida have been able to build a formidable coalition of former Military Leaders, with General T.Y. Danjuma joining the click, despite being a sworn enemy of Obasanjo.

Also, Obasanjo has gotten Senate President, Bukola Saraki, and House of Representatives Speaker, Yakubu Dogara, to commit to the Third Force.

Saraki and Dogara, alongside their supporters across the All Progressives Congress, APC, and the minority Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in the National Assembly, will in the coming weeks move in droves to the Third Force, which will likely metamorphose into the Social Democratic Party, SDP, the political party that may be the new vehicle that Kwankwaso will ride on to challenge Buhari in the forthcoming election.

Sensing the danger in the plot, Buhari recently reached out to APC Leader, Bola Tinubu, to help resolve issues that have fractionalized the party and pitched Leaders against each other.

However, Kwankwaso, who is also being wooed by the PDP, may be fighting the biggest battle of his political career, as powerful forces in the APC in Kano, led by the incumbent Governor, Abdullahi Ganduje, are hell-bent on prematurely ending his political career.
