Renowned journalist, social critic and former presidential candidate, Dele Momodu, has categorically stated that he envisages a landslide victory for the All Progressive Congress (#APC) presidential candidate, General Muhammadu #Buhari (rtd).
He made this statement in an interview with PREMIUM TIMES' Michael Abimboye.
When asked if he was sure General Buhari (rtd) would emerge victorious in the February 14 presidential election, Mr Dele Momodu replied by saying: "Oh, I have no doubt that General Buhari is set to create an upset in Nigeria&39;s political configuration."
"If Buhari wins this election, it is not going to be a close election because he is going to win by a wide margin.
Despite the violence-free peace pact signed in Abuja by #President Jonathan, Buhari and others, there are still cases of electoral violence. As a result of this phenomenon, he was asked to give his opinion on whether a violence-free election was possible in Nigeria?
"Oh, we can," he replied. "What usually happens is that once a particular candidate is overwhelmingly popular and the mood of change permeates the entire society, it becomes difficult for people to fight because it becomes oblivious that one candidate was more popular than the other.
"That&39;s what happened in 1993. Nobody fought when Chief Abiola won. People expected that there was going to be violence, but there was no violence because it was clear that Abiola was way ahead of Tofa. How will you fight when your own people are supporting your opponent?
"Jonathan&39;s supporters who think they can fight now, by that time [if Buhari wins the presidential poll], it would have dawn on them that even in their own village, Buhari has supporters and in situations like that who are you going to fight?
