The ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) has refuted the declare that 5 of its governors are in talks with the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar.
Naija News earlier stated that the spokesman of the PDP Presidential Campaign Organisation, Kola Ologbondiyan, had stated that the 5 APC governors have been discussing how to help Atiku in the 2023 presidential election.
According to Ologbondiyan, the 5 governors believe that Atiku has a extra believable manifesto and higher experience to manage Nigeria than their party’s presidential flagbearer, Bola Tinubu.
But in a swift response on Thursday, the APC spokesman, Felix Morka, pushed aside the claim by using the opposition party, saying that the PDP need to quit peddling falsehood.
Morka, in an interview with Leadership, described the claim as wishful wondering which suggests that the PDP lacks plans and a clear-cut approach for the forthcoming general election.
He claimed that the opposition party had been grabbing on straws due to a lack of agenda and plans for the forthcoming elections, including that the declare shows excessive desperation and an utter lack of competitive confidence to face 2023.
He said, “That’s wishful thinking; you can see in reality that they don’t have any plans for the next elections. They have no plans, they have no strategy. The different day they filed a lawsuit and now they are speakme about 5 APC governors.
“So, truly that is not an agenda for an election and it does not exhibit a party that is serious about competing for power. They are just grabbing on straws, hoping that they can seize something that has a route however it’s just absolutely wishful. It’s not worth any reaction.
“Again, that’s the PDP setting itself on a phantom and vain expedition. It is apparent the PDP is rightly satisfied of its failed 2023 engagement. Trapped in the abyss of its interior contradictions and intractable crisis, the PDP has resorted to grabbing straws and scratching the sand in hope of success.
“It betrays the extreme desperation and utter lack of competitive confidence to face 2023. To be clear, there shall be no political manna falling from the sky for the PDP. They must wake up from their inebriated slumber and odor the political coffee.”
