The Borno South Senatorial Candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Hon Kudla Satumari Haske has said the people of the North East will vote for the office of the president rather than that of the vice president.
Kudla said the North East people are desirous of producing the next president.
Former Vice President Atiku Abubakar is the presidential candidate of the PDP while former governor of Borno State Sen Kashim Shettima is the vice presidential candidate of the APC.
Atiku and Shettima are from the North Eastern States of Adamawa and Borno.
The nomination of Kashim Shettima as the running mate to Tinubu raised sentiments and national outrage.
But speaking to Journalists in Abuja concerning the pulse of the people of the North East, the Borno South Senatorial District candidate, Kudla, said the North East will vote massively for the PDP adding that there is already a mass exodus of people from the APC.
“It is heartwarming to receive the coordinator of the Tinubu Support Group in Borno State, in person of Hon Abdu Musa Msheliza in the PDP.
“Like you said, he is a grassroot politician and it calls for the recognition of his contribution in the polity and how he mobilizes the people in the grassroots.
“Msheliza saw the wind of change that is blowing in Borno State and he said the election is about the future of the people and that his future in politics will be dependent on what happened in 2023. With his coming, he will add to the value that is already on ground.
“Msheliza is not alone, we have the APC former senatorial aspirant, former house of representatives aspirant, we have former state house of assembly aspirants that have already joined. This is happening not only in Borno State but the entire North East, “ Kudla said, adding that in weeks to come, there will be a gale of defections to the PDP.
“Borno South is known to be the bedrock of the PDP in Borno State and with the kind of changes we are seeing today, PDP will produce the Senator in Southern Borno and Atiku Abubakar is on his way to the Villa because the North East people will vote for the office of the president and not that of the vice that is causing division, “ Kudla said.
According to Kudla, the evidence of winning the election is very clear adding that the people of Borno State are very excited about the political situation leading to the 2023 general elections.
“I want to assure you that in 2023, it’s going to be a choice between Borno, Adamawa Bauchi, Gombe which used to be the former North East States.
“It’s about choosing for the North East to go for the President office and the vice president office. I can assure you that with the feet back we are receiving, the majority of our people will rather choose the office of the President rather than that of the vice.
“I am telling you, PDP will be voted massively because we have Atiku Abubakar from the North East as the Presidential candidate of the PDP. Not only in Southern Borno, In Central and in Northern Borno, they will vote for the PDP. We have seen a lot of people decamping from the APC to the PDP. And with the improvement in the electoral laws and practices, I want to believe that the outcome of the 2023 general elections will be different from what we have been having before, “ Kudla added.
