A chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Dan Orbih, has played down the chances of the All Progressives Congress (APC) ahead of the 2023 general elections.
Orbih who serves as the national vice chairman of the PDP in the south-south zone argued that the APC does not have any candidate capable of winning the coming presidential election.
He said the ruling party is aware that it lacks a candidate and is now looking outside of its fold for a worthy candidate to represent it in the 2023 presidential election, The Nation reported.
“So I am not surprised that they are looking for people in the PDP to come and contest the presidential ticket in their party.
“It shows clearly that they are aware that in their party, they don’t have anybody that can win the next presidential election.''
Meanwhile, Governor Ifeanyi Okowa of Delta state has declared that the PDP was being repositioned from the grassroots to the national level to enable the party to provide the needed leadership that Nigerians have been yearning for come 2023.
Governor Okowa stated this on Wednesday, 31 when the PDP flagged off its ward to ward campaign rally for the Saturday, April 10 state House of Assembly bye-election for Isoko North local government area of the state.
He noted that Nigerians have gone through untold hardship since the PDP left the government at the centre in 2015, stressing that all issues confronting the nation would be a thing of the past by the time the party reclaims political power in 2023.
