The presidential candidate of the Peoples Trust (PT), Mr Gbenga Olawepo-Hashim, has denied stepping down for either President Muhammadu Buhari of the All Progressives Congress (APC) or the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential flagbearer, Atiku Abubakar.

In a statement on Tuesday by his media aide, Hassan Ibrahim, the presidential hopeful expressed the confidence that the two candidates are beatable with their parties’ woeful performances since 1999.

He said: “Nigeria is a very interesting country, and I don’t know any country where other candidates are pressured to step down.

“I think it is a coinage here because in a multi-party democracy, nobody steps down, you win some seats and on the basis of this you can form coalition based on your programme after the election.

“The presidential election is not about party but about candidates and the future of the country and the two parties have failed in that regard. But we give hope that if we come in, Nigeria will be better.”

Olawepo-Hashim added that 70 percent of Nigerian voters are yet to decide who to vote for among the presidential candidates less than 11 days to the 2019 election.

According to him, “Some few days to election, more than 70 percent of the electorates are still wondering who they are going to vote for. They have been examining the candidates they are going to vote for.

“I can say that what these candidates promised to offer and among all the alternative parties, the PT is the biggest. But I can tell you that this election is still very open even though its ten days to the polls.”
