2023: Tinubu no match for ‘competent, popular and prepared’ Atiku – PDP

THE People’s Democratic Party (PDP) says the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, is no match for its flagbearer, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar.

The party said Tinubu only clinched the Presidential ticket of a party that is “moribund, decrepit and crippled”.

The National Publicity Secretary of the PDP Hon. Debo Ologunagba in a statement today said the APC has since served out its purpose as a fraudulent contraption that brought in the failed and corrupt administration.”

The statement added that the PDP sympathised with Tinubu for embarking on a journey to “nowhere as he is no match for PDP’s more popular, more competent and more prepared Presidential Candidate,” Atiku Abubakar.

PDP said, “Asiwaju will soon realize that Nigeria is not one of his acquired estates or fiefdoms and that the Nigerian people are not his political string-puppets and retinue of lackies, from whom he bought the APC Presidential ticket.

“Asiwaju will also soon realize that Nigerians hold him responsible for his self-confessed role in installing the failed Buhari-led administration that subjugated the people, brought excruciating economic hardship, acute poverty, bloodletting, terrorism, mass killings, promoted disunity, tribalism and nepotism, lawlessness, massive treasury looting and unpardonable life-discounting experiences to our country.”

The party said his failure to express empathy for the victims of violence, kidnapping, mass killings and acts of terrorism, especially the recent gruesome attack in a sacred place of worship, St. Francis Catholic Church, Owo in Ondo State, serves as a foretaste of the big coverup and harrowing experience that Nigerians will face should Asiwaju emerge as President in 2023.

The statement further said, “From Asiwaju’s egotistic outbursts before and after the APC manipulative National Convention, it is clear that his life-long dream of clinching the APC Presidential ticket is not for the wellbeing of Nigerians but out of desperation to lay hands on the keys to the nation’s treasury.”
