Atiku
PDP spokesperson Kola Ologbondiyan

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has claimed that the “spontaneous and overwhelming acceptance accorded our Presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, in the South-East is a manifestation of the trajectory that awaits him in all the geopolitical zones across the country.”

In a statement issued by Kola Ologbondiyan, its National Publicity Secretary, in Abuja on Thursday, the opposition party explained that the acceptance demonstrates “the settled resolve of Nigerians across the board to vote out the incompetent President Muhammadu Buhari administration because of its manifest failures in governance.”

The PDP said it was aware of how this acceptance has sent jitters to the APC and President Buhari having belied claims that Mr President and the APC were making inroads into the Southeast.

The party added: “With the assemblage of all leaders of note in every sector from all the five states of the Southeast receiving our candidate, it is settled that President Buhari and the APC do not have any support in the zone.

“This acceptance could not have been less significant because the Buhari-led APC administration has no achievement, of any sort, in the entire zone.”

The PDP commended the people of the Southeast and Nigerians in general for their courage in “collectively resolving to rally with Atiku and our other candidates to rescue our nation from shackles of the Buhari administration and return her to the path of good governance, national cohesion and economic prosperity.”
