Ahead of the 2023 presidential election, the Peoples Democratic Party National Publicity Secretary, Debo Ologunagba, said the All Progressives Congress can not get the statutory 25 per cent votes in most states.
In a statement he signed obtained by Premium Politics, the PDP chieftain described the ruling party as a failure that Nigerians have rejected.
The former member of the house of representatives further claims that the take over of the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari’s (retd.) campaign office in Katsina is a clear indication that the APC-led government has yielded power to the PDP.
Ologunagba who described the mammoth crowd at the PDP rallies in Kano and Katsina prove that the APC has no foothold in the coming 2023 general elections.
The PDP scribe wrote, “The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) admonishes the failed All Progressives Congress (APC) not to bother to campaign in the 2023 general elections as the APC cannot secure the statutory 25% of votes in most States of the country.
“The mammoth crowd that greets PDP’s rallies including the recent rallies in Kano and Katsina States are clear messages to the APC that they have been rejected by the people and have no foothold in the 2023 general elections.
“The fact that Nigerians from all walks of life in Kano State, the political, commercial nerve centre of the North and national melting point, defied the rain in massive show of solidarity to the PDP and our Presidential Candidate, Atiku Abubakar, underscores their determination to break through all barriers and return the PDP to power in 2023.
“The current mass exodus from the APC into the PDP as being witnessed in most States including President Muhammadu Buhari’s home State of Katsina highpoints the consensus by Nigerians that the APC has irredeemably failed and that the PDP remains the only vehicle to rescue and rebuild the country from misrule of the APC.
“The takeover of President Buhari’s campaign office by the PDP in his home Katsina State following the defection of critical APC stakeholders in the State, signals the surrender of the APC and its structure to the PDP in President Buhari’s supposed strongholds.
“From all indications, under a credible, free, fair and transparent electoral process, the APC cannot secure the statutory 25% of votes in most States across the country.
“Our Party, therefore, admonishes the APC not to bother to campaign in Kano, Katsina, other States of the north and of course in other geo-political zones of the country as Nigerians have already aligned with the PDP to return our nation to the path of unity, national cohesion and economic prosperity.”
