The party accused the opposition of planning to benefit from the discomfort the policies will create for Nigerians and the resentment they will generate for the ruling APC.

Onanuga words:

"This is a man who wants to be President and does not mind even if he presides over the graves of Nigerians as long as his inordinate ambition materialises in line with the prophecy of his marabouts.
"It is crystal clear to every Nigerian of conscience now that Atiku Abubakar and PDP do not mean well for our country. PDP and Atiku have become desperadoes who will wish calamity on the country as long as it makes them win an election they are destined to lose, spectacularly.

"Atiku is now public enemy number one in Nigeria. He is evil personified and must be rejected at the polls on 25 February.
"If Atiku Abubakar has the poor people of our country at heart like Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, the PDP candidate will not be advocating for adherence to a policy that has become a burden too heavy to bear for our people."

Fresh trouble for Atiku as Rivers PDP turns against him, gives reason

Atiku Abubakar had earlier been described as an unrepentant enemy of Rivers state and Nigeria as a whole.

This description of Atiku was given by the Rivers state chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) campaign council.

The PDP in the state commended Governor Nyesom Wike for taking steps to deny the Atiku's team the use of the Adokiye Amiesimaka Stadium.

More trouble for Atiku as 2 PDP governors not in Wike's camp are reportedly set to dump him

The national chairman of the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP), Professor Rufai Ahmed Alkali, has alleged that two other PDP governors, apart from the G5, are threatening to dump Atiku.

Alkali made the claim while reacting to Atiku's statement that he was in talks with the NNPP presidential candidate, Rabiu Kwankwaso, over a possible alliance.

The NNPP chairman berated Atiku, saying the former vice president should focus on putting his party together ahead of the polls.
