ASO ROCK 2015, WAY STILL OPEN FOR APC?
Someone recently asked Icheoku, is there any way whatsoever possible the APC could win the next 2015 Nigerian presidential election? Icheoku says although it might seem an improbable scenario, but were the APC to pull a masterstroke of fielding a core Igbo Christian presidential candidate with a Middle Belt Muslim vice presidential candidate, it will be history for Jonathan and his PDP. Calculation:- Buhari brings in the six Northwest and six Northeastern states, Bola Tinubu brings in four or five Southwestern states, the Middles Belt (North central) veepee candidate brings in two or three states, Rotimi delivers Rivers and added to the Igbo five states, it is a fait accompli and there will be an APC mounted flag in Aso Rock 2015. But hey if wishes were horse, beggars will mount.
Icheoku knows this might sound a very impossible contemplation for the party of Muslims fundamentalists, but for a seemingly desperate APC, nothing is unthinkable in their rabid quest to occupy Aso rock come 2015. So who knows what they are keeping so close to their chest to throw spanner in the works for the PDP? Also since politics is a game of chess and it takes deft adroitness to masterfully corner and whack the other party's queen, this may be the sudden-death joker APC is trying to bamboozle Jonathan with. After the election, they can then turn around and impeach the president and later also impeach the succeeding vice president president to make way for their preferred Islamic president for crying out loud.
Now you know, so advise the Islamic party that they will be killing two birds with a stone by fielding such a ticket. By fielding a Christian Igbo, they would have laid to rest the perception that they are an Islamic Party of fundamentalists and also undercut Jonathan on the knees by snatching his priceless Igbo support and votes. This is the only viable road map into Aso rock as it stands today for the APC and many political pundits are in unison on this. Now you see that it is not yet all over until it is over for the party owned by Bola Tinubu with Buhari holding minority shares and largely financed by Middle East Islamic countries.
