Democrat Party candidate for president in 2023 According to Atiku Abubakar, Peter Obi, the Labour Party’s nominee, needs a miracle to prevail in the 2023 presidential election.
Atiku claims that the party has no physical structure and simply exists online.
He claimed that the Labour Party’s dismal vote total in the governorship election revealed it to be in the wrong.
This was stated by Atiku, the People’s Democratic Party’s presidential candidate, on Friday during an appearance on Arise TV.
HE SAID: “I RARELY DON’T EXPECT THE LABOUR PARTY TO TAKE AS MUCH VOTES FROM THE PDP AS PEOPLE ARE SUGGESTING. WE COULD HAVE SEEN IT IN THE LAST ELECTIONS IN OSUN STATE. WHAT IS THE PERFORMANCE OF THE LABOUR PARTY.
“THIS IS A PARTY THAT DOESN’T HAVE A GOVERNOR, DOESN’T HAVE MEMBERS OF THE NATIONAL ASSEMBLY, DOESN’T HAVE MEMBERS OF THE STATE HOUSE OF ASSEMBLY AND POLITICS IN THIS COUNTRY DEPENDS ON THE STRUCTURES YOU HAVE AT THESE VARIOUS LEVELS: AT THE LOCAL GOVERNMENT LEVEL, AT THE STATE LEVEL AND AT THE NATIONAL LEVEL. SO, IT IS VERY VERY DIFFICULT TO EXPECT A MIRACLE TO HAPPEN SIMPLY BECAUSE PETER OBI IS IN LABOUR PARTY.
“AFTERALL, THEY WERE SAYING THROUGH THE SOCIAL MEDIA, THEY HAVE MORE THAN ONE MILLION VOTES IN OSUN STATE BUT HOW MANY PEOPLE STAND OUT TO VOTE FOR LABOUR PARTY, AND THERE AGAIN MARK YOU, YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT SOCIAL MEDIA, IN THE NORTH 90% OF OUR PEOPLE ARE NOT TUNED TO SOCIAL MEDIA.”
