Presidential Debate: Why You Should Vote for Atiku in the Forthcoming Presidential Election

To be sincere, my choice candidate for the next election is between Moghalu, Durotoye and Oby (and manageably Sowore). Buhari and Atiku are far from it. Atiku has, to me, not shown enough difference between himself and Buhari, even though he is a lesser evil. But I will consider Atiku should the system remain the same. The rest are not ready for this election. Except by divine intervention, none of the other candidates can win even in a local government. If the rest were ready, they would have pulled their strings together to form a third force and thereby creating a realistic option. How do I mean?
Presidential Debate: Why You Should Vote for Atiku in the Forthcoming Presidential Election

We have 119,973 polling units in 8,809 wards of the 774 LGAs in Nigeria. Any serious political party must have structures in all these units to win a Presidential election. It's obvious the only parties that can boast of this are the APC and the PDP. Technically, if I gave my vote to anyone aside Atiku, it means I voted for Buhari because every single vote against Atiku is to Buhari's favour. In other words, a vote for Oby, Moghalu, Sowore, Durotoye, etc is a vote for Buhari.

I hate that these charismatic young brains are leaving me with no choice than to give Atiku my vote. But if we must be realistic, the candidates in this election are just Buhari and Atiku – the devil and the demon. The worst thought is that if I decided to stay away from the election, it technically means I have endorsed Buhari for another term because a vote down is a vote for Buhari. No, that would be a nightmare. God must forbid! The election is here. Please vote wisely!
