70% Of Voters Are Still Undecided On 2019 Polls ― Olawepo-Hashim

PRESIDENTIAL candidate of People’s Trust (PT), Mr Gbenga Olawepo-Hashim, said on Tuesday that no fewer than 70 per cent of Nigerian voters are yet undecided some 11 days to the presidential election.

Olawepo-Hashim, in a statement from his media office also dispelled the rumour that he was about stepping down for the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party(PDP) Alhaji Atiku Abubakar.

He further declared that his candidature would guarantee rapid economic development capable of lifting the masses out of poverty.

The statement quoted Olawepo-Hashim as telling his teeming supporters while speaking at a campaign rally in Akure Ondo state as saying that the electorate needed to reject the two major political parties which he said have failed the country in the last twenty years.

Mr Olawepo-Hashim who was accompanied by his Campaign Director-General and former Transport Minister, Mr Habu Fari, said the country was too endowed with natural resources for the citizenry to be wallowing in poverty and vowed to introduce policies that would end insecurity and economic hardship if elected the president of the nation on the sixteenth of this month.

He advised eligible voters to secure their future by voting for his People’s Trust party in the 2019 election adding that his party was fine-tuning its strategy in all states of the federation and designing how to wrestle power from the ruling APC.

The Presidential candidate assured Nigerians, especially youths and graduates that he would create jobs and make the environment conducive for businesses to flourish.

He also said: “Some few days to election more than 70 per cent 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 and 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 election.

“This is one of the reasons i said if elected we will form a government of National unity which will include the good people in the APC and PDP.”

Olawepo-Hashim further said:  “Nigeria is a very interesting country, and I don’t know any country where other parties’ candidates are pressured to step down. I think it’s a coinage here because, in a multi-party democracy, nobody steps down, you win some seat and on the basis of this, you can form coalition based on programme after the election.

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