By Thursday morning the delegates’ convention of Nigeria’s APC will be over.
Who will fly the party’s flag in the Feb. 14, 2015, presidential election? Who will square up to President Goodluck Jonathan of the PDP?
But for the 12 AC governors, Atiku Abubakar would have emerged winner through a voting process. But the party’s leaders decided to back Muhammadu Buhari.
So, Buhari is likely to win outright.
Will Atiku let go? Will he support the winning candidate? His decision will seal the party’s fate. A progressive party is on trial in Nigeria.
