FORMER Speaker of the House of Representatives, Hon. Aminu Bello Masari, has stated that General Mohammadu Buhari (rtd) remains the only credible presidential candidate in Nigeria just as he argued that the 2011 general elections will be a race between Buhari and whoever becomes the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, presidential candidate.
Masari, in an interviewÂ with Vanguard said that General Buhari remains the only presidential candidate that has been consistent since 2003 and will never compromise whatever he believes in.
According to him, â€œWe absolutely believe that the 2011 general elections will be between General Buhari and whoever the PDP presents as its presidential candidate, the simple reason being that Buhari has a mass followership in this country and what the followership needs is being galvanised and once there is free and fair elections and a credible INEC is guaranteed, Buhari will win elections.
â€œYou know General Buhari has been very consistent and at least you should expect that consistency from the CPC becauseÂ in 2003, he pursued his case to the Supreme Court and also in 2007, he went to the Supreme Court and since then he never compromised on what he believes in and to that extent we will see a credible opposition.”
