Legit.ng earlier reported that Hannatu Musawa, the deputy spokesperson of the APC presidential campaign council, said the party is only in the 2023 presidential race with Atiku Abubakar, the PDP presidential candidate.

Musawa boasted that Bola Tinubu, the APC presidential flagbearer, would defeat Atiku with a landslide victory in the 2023 poll.

The APC chieftain maintained that the NNPP and the Labour Party were only in the race to benefit the system as they did not have structure or political base.
