The Peoples Democratic Party Presidential Campaign Committee has insisted that their Candidate, Atiku Abubakar will win the 2023 polls irrespective of the opinion of other “rebel” governors.
The Director of Strategic Communication, National Election Management Committee of the PDP presidential campaign, Dele Momodu, stated this in an interview, noting that Atiku had distinguished himself from other contestants in the race to Aso Rock.
He said the PDP were confident of the candidate’s victory with or without the support of the five governors who were currently not participating in the party’s electioneering.
Speaking with reporters, Momodu said, “There is no candidate today that can stop Atiku Abubakar from becoming President of Nigeria. None of the candidates has his pedigree, exposure, competence, temperament, and network. He has paid his dues, having staked his life in the growth and development of democracy in Nigeria in the past 29 years. His crowning glory will come in 2023.
“I heard one of the G5 governors saying yesterday that he will announce his preferred presidential candidate in January. We hope they will announce Atiku but with or without the support of these governors, Atiku is winning the election. He will become the President of Nigeria. This is not rhetoric.
“Everyone contesting can list thousands of reasons they should be voted for but we need a man who is an expert at job creation, a unifier, a Nigerian that Nigerians can trust. Wherever he is called to share his vision, he goes there no matter how inconvenient it is. Unlike those who run away from town halls, Atiku is always available to speak about the issues. While others attack him, his focus is on the issues.
“We do hope these candidates will man up to debate him on issues of security, job creation, economy, sports, infrastructure, and what have you,” he said
