The Economist again predicts Atiku‘s victory in upcoming presidential election

The Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU) Africa has again predicted that Atiku Abubakar, the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), will win the upcoming presidential election.

The International magazine tweeted on Friday that the margin of victory is getting narrower as the election approaches, but Atiku and his political party will win the historic election.

The tweet reads:

“#NigeriaDecides2019: Less than 2 weeks before #Nigeria‘s presidential election. Abubakar has floated idea of corruption amnesty. It is arguably an impolitic time for such a delicate proposal.

“Abubakar is hard-pressed to convince voters that he is a clean politician, having been on the receiving end of numerous graft allegations in the past.

“We retain out forecast for #Abubakar to win, but expected margin of victory is narrowing as the poll approaches.” EIU Africa tweeted.
