The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential council has dismissed a report predicting that Bola Tinubu, standard bearer of the All Progressives Congress (APC), will win the general election.

 

In a report, Fitch Solutions Country Risk and Industry Research said the former Lagos governor would win the presidential election, but there would be social instability.

 

In a statement on Saturday, Kola Ologbondiyan, spokesman of the PDP campaign council, said Tinubu has no chance of victory in the presidential election.

 

“Across the north, the APC presidential candidate does not have a stable political structure with the daily decamping of hordes of Nigerians in the region who voted for President Muhammadu Buhari in 2015 and 2019 now crossing over to the PDP to support Atiku Abubakar in the 2023 elections,” the statement reads.

 

 “In the south, Asiwaju Tinubu has no solid base in the south-south and south-east where he has been roundly rejected.

 

Even in the south-west, the former Lagos state governor has been demystified as evidenced in his party’s devastating loss in the last Governorship election in Osun State; a state considered to be his ancestral home, to the PDP.

 

“Asiwaju Tinubu has been booed in States of the south-west and he has lost his political allies, cultural institutions and foot soldiers in Lagos state and other parts of the south-west because of his selfish posturing and trust issues.

 

 “Moreover, the APC presidential candidate has not demonstrated the desired capacity, experience, stamina as well as selfless disposition to lead a nation like Nigeria.

 

“The reality of the 2023 Presidential elections is that the PDP Presidential Candidate, Atiku Abubakar, has the highest organic followership cutting across all demographics like age, class, ethnic, sectional and even political affiliations in the country as Nigerians believe in his proven capacity, competence, experience, readiness and will power to lead our nation at this point.

 

“Nigerians should therefore disregard the said Fitch Report as it does not reflect the reality of the 2023 presidential election in Nigeria.”
