The Atiku/Okowa Presidential Campaign Organisation, also on Tuesday, insisted that the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar, will sweep the 2023 presidential election at the first ballot.
Spokesperson of the campaign organisation of Atiku and his running mate, Ifeanyi Okowa, Kola Ologbondiyan, said in a statement that with Atiku’s overwhelming support among Nigerians, his victorious outing on February 25, 2023 will shock pollsters.
He was, apparently, reacting to THISDAY 2023 Election Centre, which a few days ago predicted a presidential run off.
Ologbondiyan stated, “Atiku enjoys the solidarity and support of greater majority of Nigerians, who are not captured in the indices relied upon by many of the pollsters in their projections on the 2023 presidential election.
“It is incontrovertible that Atiku will win the majority of lawful votes across the country and garner the constitutionally required 25 per cent of votes in more than 24 states of the federation.
“It is evident that the massive traditional voters of the PDP across the polling units, wards, local governments, states and the six geo-political zones are not distracted in their steadfastness to rescue Nigeria from the misrule of the All Progressives Congress (APC) by voting en masse for Atiku.”
Ologbondiyan also said the army of traditional voters were unrelenting in mobilising the non-partisan voters as well as the undecided across the country to vote for the PDP presidential candidate.
He said it was clear that the candidate of the rival APC, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, lacked the political muscle and national acceptability to stop Atiku at the first ballot.
Ologbondiyan said, “Our campaign is, therefore, unfazed, knowing that majority of Nigerians across the nation are in consensus to elect Atiku as the next president of our country, particularly, given his proven capacity, competence, political will and national acceptability to provide leadership at this critical time of our national history.”
The Atiku/Okowa campaign urged Nigerians to remain united and focused in rallying with Atiku in the collective mission to rescue and rebuild the country from the misrule of APC.
