2023: Atiku Will Win Without Wike, Others – PDP PCC
The presidential campaign council (PCC) of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has boasted that the party will win the 2023 presidential election with or without the support of the five aggrieved PDP Governors.
Recall that Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike and his counterparts, Okezie Ikpeazu (Abia State), Seyi Makinde (Oyo State), Samuel Ortom (Benue State), and Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi (Enugu State) are the five aggrieved Governors known as the G-5.
The aggrieved Governors on different occasions have vowed not to support Atiku if the national chairman of the party, Iyorchia Ayu does not resign from office.
The Director of Strategic Communication, National Election Management Committee of the PDP presidential campaign committee, Dele Momodu while speaking with Punch said Atiku had distinguished himself from other contestants ahead of the 2023 presidential election.
Momodu said, “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.”
