    Okay lets analyze the stakes for PDP in 2019:
    PDP needs a consensus candidate to stand a chance against Buhari. Here are the leading candidates:
    Atiku Abubakar is 73 years, will be 78 in 2023, meaning this is his last chance of becoming the president of Nigeria-his pursuit since SDP days in 1993. How would you explain to this kind person to forgo his ambition?

    Tambuwal would be leaving his governorship post, while swimming against the tides in his State, which dominantly APC to purse his presidential ambition he has been nursing 2015, and you want him to agree to this consensus nonsense?

    Kwakwanso who is egoist, who believes and has been singing to whoever cares, that he is the only one capable of defeating Buhari..and you want him to take anything less?

    Sule Lamido, who believes he is the anointed candidate of Obasanjo, who agree to cede his right to another person?

    PDP have gathered some useless and selfish ambitious politicians that will orchestrate their own doom.

    As for Moghalu, Durotoye, Sowore and co, they will make an impact but they do not have the political mileage, capaital, finances and foot soldiers to upstage PMB. It is an unfortunate reality, we would be complaining for another 4 years.
