- The spokesperson for the PDP, Kola Ologbondiyan, claims some persons in APC will work to ensure that Atiku Abubakar emerges victorious in the presidential election
- Ologbondiyan notes that the PDP is very optimistic that it will win the coming presidential election and other elections in the country
- The PDP chieftain says the failure of the current administration to deliver on its promises will make majority of Nigerians reject Buhari during the general elections
The national publicity secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Kola Ologbondiyan, has said some people within the Buhari presidency and APC will work to ensure the victory of Atiku Abubakar in the presidential election.
Ologbondiyan in an interview with The Tribune published on Wednesday, February 20, stated that PDP is very optimistic that it will win the coming presidential election and other elections in the country.
He said the failure of the current administration to deliver on its three-point promises of reviving the economy, fighting insurgency and fighting corruption, will make majority of Nigerians reject President Buhari during the general elections.
“…Muhammadu Buhari has failed to deliver on his three-point promises of reviving the economy, fighting insurgency and fighting corruption. Rather than improving on the robust economy that was handed over to him by President Goodluck Jonathan, President Buhari, out of sheer incompetence, took the economy to the woods. Life, in every measure of appraisal, has gone miserable. On this account alone, majority of Nigerians will reject President Buhari at the polls,” Ologbondiyan stated.
“In the area of fighting insurgency, President Buhari has failed woefully, so much that even the residents of his home state are fleeing to Niger Republic. On the fight against corruption, all you need to do is look around Mr President and the picture you find will show you if, in truth, President Muhammadu Buhari has fought corruption."
The PDP spokesperson accused the APC and the Buhari presidency of harassing and intimidating members of his party, alleging that the ruling party has refused to respect the rule of law by seeking to undermine democracy and subdue the constitutional rights of members of the opposition.
"When you add these factors to the number of Nigerians that had abandoned the ship of APC, including those who would work for the people’s candidate, Atiku Abubakar, from within the Buhari Presidency and inside APC, you will agree with me that we are coasting home to victory and we shall get Nigeria working again,"he said.
Meanwhile, the national chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, has reportedly said the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP)’s presidential candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, has conceded defeat ahead of the election.
Nigerian Tribune reports that Oshiomhole made the claim in his reaction to Atiku’s purported statement that two geopolitical zones, south-south and southeast were his strongholds.
The APC chairman said Atiku has unwittingly revealed that he has lost out in four out of the six geopolitical zones.
