People Democratic Party 2023 Presidential aspirant Atiku Abubakar has said it will take a miracle for the candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi, to win the 2023 presidential election.
According to Atiku, the party is only on social media and with no structure on the ground.
He said the outcome of the governorship election proved the Labour Party wrong as it scored a poor number of votes.
Atiku, who is the Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, said this on Friday when he appeared 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.”
