The People’s Democratic Party’s (PDP) Atiku Abubakar has professed confidence in his chances in the 2023 elections throughout the entirety of his campaign, despite threats from 5 party governors to oppose him.
The Atiku-Okowa Campaign Group’s spokesperson, Mr. Kola Ologbodiyan, told reporters in Abuja on Tuesday that the campaign organization is certain that Atiku will win by a wide margin on election day.
He remarked as the G-5 Governors, lead by Governor Nyesom Wike, went to London to finalize their support strategy for an unnamed presidential contender.
Messages from the G-5 camp indicate that members are undecided over whether to support Mr. Peter Obi of the Labour Party or Asiwaju Ahmed Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress.
According to a typically trustworthy source inside the G-5 Governors camp who spoke to Vanguard in confidence, “The governors are considering supporting either of the two.
“One of the Governors is making a case for Obi but others argue that he lacks the support base to cover the 36 states and Abuja.
“Those in this camp argue that should he emerge victorious we will be returning to square one because he will not enjoy the majority in the National Assembly and thus will find it difficult to pass legislation required for him to make the reforms he has been conversing.
“On the other hand, those among them making a case for Asiwaju are of the view that the party being the ruling party has the requisite spread.
“They also allude to the fact that the candidate so far appears to recognize the disaster the APC represents at the Centre and had concentrated on using successes recorded in Lagos as examples of what he intends to do when he gets into office; would endear him to Nigerians.”
“Politics is all about negotiations they are still taking. One thing they agree on is their determination to ensure that the next President emerges from Southern Nigeria.”
According to the campaign, Atiku would win the presidential election on February 25, 2023, with the overwhelming support of Nigerians nationwide, which “will shock Pollsters.”
“Atiku enjoys the solidarity and support of greater majority of Nigerians who are not captured in the indices relied upon by many of the pollsters in their projections on the 2023 Presidential election.
“It is incontrovertible that Atiku will win the majority of lawful votes across the country and garner the constitutionally required 25% of votes in more than 24 States of the federation.
“It is evident that the massive traditional voters of the PDP across the polling units, wards, local governments, states and the six geo-political zones are not distracted in their steadfastness to rescue Nigeria from the misrule of the All Progressives Congress (APC) by voting en masse for Atiku.“
He continued by saying that this army of steadfast voters is steadfast in encouraging independent and undecided voters across the nation to support the PDP presidential candidate.
