The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) yesterday said the combination of its Presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar and his running mate, former governor Peter Obi has been well received by Nigerians across board, contrary to spurious publications being sponsored by the All Progressives Congress (APC). The party said the APC and the Buhari Presidency, having failed to stop the emergence of Atiku Abubakar as presidential candidate and also having failed in their attempts to smear him with unfounded allegations have now resorted to attacking our vice presidential candidate and trying to create the impression that he is not well received in some parts of the country. The PDP is already aware of how the APC has paid millions of naira to hack writers to spin negative narratives with a view to create an impression of disagreement and bad blood among our leaders and members across the northern and southern divides, who have since aligned with the Atiku/Obi ticket. The PDP in a statement signed by its national publicity secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, said the majority of Nigerians are aware that the APC and the Muhammadu Buhari Presidency have been jittery since the emergence of Atiku Abubakar as its Presidential candidate, a disposition that heightened with the choice of Peter Obi as his running mate, hence their frenzy to cause confusion within the fold.
The PDP restated that “the combination of Atiku Abubakar and Peter Obi, with their internationally acclaimed forthrightness, hard work, ingenuity and managerial competencies, guarantees a prudent and result-oriented administration that will liberate our nation from the economic shackles which the wasteful, incompetent, and deceptive APC administration has plunged our nation into. “Furthermore, the Buhari Presidency and APC’s unrelenting resort to fabrications and personal attacks against our candidates instead of presenting their claimed achievements and programmes to Nigerians, confirms that they have nothing to offer as they have been trending on false performance claims and propaganda. “On our own part, the PDP, as a Pan Nigerian and performance-oriented political party, we will never descend to the shallows with the fading APC and the Buhari Presidency, but focus on how to salvage our nation from the economic hardship, acute hunger and starvation as well as the daily bloodletting that have become the order of the day under the President Buhari administration ,” the party said.
