A member of the Atiku Abubakar presidential campaign council Chief Dele Momodu has said that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential candidate will win the February 2023 presidential election.
Campaign Council Says Atiku Will Win Without G5 Governors
Momodu also said with or without the support of the five governors, now known as the G5 who are currently not participating in the party’s electioneering, victory for Atiku.
He argued that the solidarity enjoyed by the former vice president cut across party lines, noting that the task to rescue Nigeria from “the ills” of the past seven and a half years should be supported by well-meaning Nigerians, irrespective of their religious and political leanings.
According to Momodu, who is the Director of Strategic Communication, National Election Management Committee of the party’s presidential campaign council, while speaking with Punch on Saturday, Atiku had distinguished himself from other contestants in the race for Aso Rock’s top job.
“There is no candidate today that can stop Atiku Abubakar from becoming President of Nigeria. None of the candidates has his pedigree, exposure, competence, temperament, and network. He has paid his dues, having staked his life in the growth and development of democracy in Nigeria in the past 29 years. His crowning glory will come in 2023.
“I heard one of the G5 governors saying yesterday that he will announce his preferred presidential candidate in January. We hope they will announce Atiku but with or without the support of these governors, Atiku is winning the election. He will become the President of Nigeria. This is not rhetoric.
“Everyone contesting can list thousands of reasons they should be voted for but we need a man who is an expert at job creation, a unifier, a Nigerian that Nigerians can trust. Wherever he is called to share his vision, he goes there no matter how inconvenient it is. Unlike those who run away from town halls, Atiku is always available to speak about the issues. While others attack him, his focus is on the issues. We do hope these candidates will man up to debate him on issues of security, job creation, economy, sports, infrastructure, and what have you,” he said.
In other news, Kanyi Daily reported that Atiku mourned the death of the Vice Chairman and
Chief Executive Officer(CEO) of Max Air, Bashir Barau Mangal.
Mangal died in the early hours of Friday, December 23, 2022, according to a statement issued by the media consultant to the airline.
