Nigerians have rejected you, concede defeat before polls— PDP campaign to Tinubu


The presidential campaign council of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) says Nigerians have “rejected” Bola Tinubu, the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC).


The PDP campaign asked Tinubu to accept the “general rejection” and concede defeat ahead of the February 25 presidential election.


In a statement on Saturday, Kola Ologbondiyan, PDP campaign spokesperson, urged Nigerians to collect their permanent voter cards (PVCs) ahead of the deadline and vote for Atiku Abubakar, the party’s presidential candidate.


“The campaign urges Nigerians to note that their only chance of expelling the insensitive, corrupt and vicious All Progressives Congress (APC), that has brought monumental anguish and pains to our country in the last seven and half years, is by collecting their PVCs and voting for Atiku Abubakar, the Presidential Candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to instate a purposeful leadership and commence the onerous task of rebuilding our nation,” the statement reads.


“Our campaign appreciates the tremendous support, contributions and solidarity by overwhelming majority of Nigerians towards Atiku Abubakar in furtherance of their consensus that Atiku is the candidate with the desired experience, capacity, competence, integrity and national acceptability to lead our nation out of the abyss in which she has been sunk by the APC.


“All eligible Nigerians, irrespective of ethnic, religious, sectional or even political affiliations must therefore rise to the occasion, collect their PVCs, go the polls, elect Atiku Abubakar and defend their votes as a patriotic duty to redeem and rescue our nation at this critical time.


“Atiku/Okowa Campaign stands with Nigerians in charging INEC to put all measures in place to ensure free, fair, transparent and credible electoral process that will be a reflection of the will of the people as expressed at the ballot.


 “Our campaign therefore urges President Muhammadu Buhari to ensure that all institutions charged with the responsibilities of delivering credible polls to Nigerians deliver on their respective mandates in the collective interest of our nation.


“The Atiku/Okowa Campaign counsels the APC and its Presidential Candidate, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, to read the handwriting on the wall and eat the humble pie by apologising to the nation, accept their general rejection and concede defeat ahead of the presidential election.”
