The former National Chairman of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, have boasted that the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar, and his Labour Party (LP) counterpart Peter Obi, will be massively humiliated in the 2023 general election.
Oshiomole made this known alongside the National Vice Chairman of Southsouth, Chief Victor Giadom, in Benin, Edo State capital, during the Southsouth zonal stakeholders’ meeting of APC.
The APC leaders said the standard bearer of the ruling party, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, would emerge victorious and move Nigeria to greater heights.
The meeting was attended by the former governorship candidate of APC, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu, the Chairman of the party, Col. David Imuse (rtd.), and other party leaders.
Gaidom apologised to Oshiomhole for the roles he played in his removal as the chairman.
Oshiomhole said: “Just four years ago, we had a combined ticket of Atiku Abubakar and Peter Obi in PDP, but in unity, the presidential candidate of APC, President Muhammadu Buhari, defeated them. Now that Atiku and Obi are divided, do you really need a political scientist to tell you that what a united ticket could not achieve, that divided, they will achieve it?
“Atiku and Obi will be massively humiliated on election day in a civilised manner, without violence or cheating, with emphasis placed on one man, one vote, as Asiwaju Tinubu will emerge victorious. Asiwaju Tinubu, upon victory, by God’s grace, will do a lot to move Nigeria forward.
“We must work hard to deliver Asiwaju Tinubu in February 2023. Many APC members in Edo State worked so hard and we defeated PDP in 2015 and again in 2019, with a wider margin. This time round, we will so defeat Atiku, that he will not contest for president again. Hard work does not kill, it pays. Let members of APC continue to work hard.”
