He believes Buhari has never run politics based on ideology. He qualified the president’s support as a show of illiteracy and madness.

“President Buhari has never been popular. What you call popularity was stake illiteracy and outright madness. I don’t call this politic. There has never been politics of ideas. so, what you call support is not support”.

The presidential hopeful believes members of the PDP has more experience and are far better when compared to those of the ruling All Progressive Congress. He said their wealth in the continent is net to African National Congress(ANC) of South Africa.
