2023: Atiku/Okowa will emerge victorious in Borno, other states – PDP


The People’s Democratic Party (PDP) has expressed optimism that its presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, and his running mate, Ifeanyi Okowa, will emerge victorious in Borno and other States of the federation at the polls come 2023.

This comes as the presidential campaign rally holds in Maiduguri, the Borno State Capital on Wednesday.

In a statement on Wednesday, the national publicity secretary of PDP, Debo Ologunagba, explained that it will be difficult for the All Progressives Congress (APC) to secure the statutory 25% votes in most States of the country, particularly in Borno State despite being the home State of the its vice-presidential candidate, Kashim Shettima.

According to him, APC’s presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu is not on ground and is no match for PDP’s Atiku Abubakar.

The statement read,

“While Asiwaju Tinubu is not on ground being no match for PDP’s more popular and much loved Atiku Abubakar, the APC’s Vice Presidential Candidate, Kashim Shettima has since lost face with the citizens following his abysmal failure as Governor of the State.”

“Since the emergence of Atiku Abubakar as Presidential Candidate of the PDP, the APC, particularly in Borno State has been disconcerted, confused and disorganized by the mass exodus of APC members into the PDP across the nooks and crannies of the State in support of Atiku Abubakar and the PDP.”

“Reports from Borno State show that in the last one month, the PDP has recorded over a million new entrants. These are mostly members of the APC and other well-meaning Nigerians who have rejected the failed APC to support the PDP and Atiku Abubakar in the mission to rescue their State and Nigeria at large from the stranglehold of the APC.”

“The people of Borno State have suffered untold hardship, sorrow and pain under the APC and are eager for a new lease of life under the PDP and Atiku Abubakar whose proven leadership capacity represents their renewed hope for survival, security, economic sustenance, infrastructural regeneration and return to normal life.”

“Atiku Abubakar’s Presidential candidacy represents an end to the era of fake promises and false assurances of safety which the people of Borno and Nigerians across the nation have been subjected to in the last seven and half years; he represents the desires and hope of Nigerians for a more secure nation under a sincere, transparent, effective and committed government that has the capacity to deliver on its mandate.”
