A former National Chairman of the governing All Progressives Congress (APC), Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, and National Vice Chairman, Southsouth, Chief Victor Giadom, have declared that the presidential candidate of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar, and his Labour Party (LP) counterpart Peter Obi, will be defeated in next year’s election.
The APC leaders said the standard bearer of the ruling party, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, would emerge victorious and move Nigeria to greater heights.
Oshiomhole and Giadom spoke in Benin, Edo State capital, during the Southsouth zonal stakeholders’ meeting of APC.
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 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 civilized 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.
