Nigeria’s opposition party, the Peoples Democratic Party have reportedly concluded plan to ruled out former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar as its candidate for 2023 presidential race.
Popular activist, Deji Adeyanju, revealed this on Wednesday, June 23 in a series of posts on his Twitter account, TrillerTunes understands.
According to the Abuja-based activist, PDP stakeholders are are tired of fielding Atiku and are now considering either Governor Aminu Tambuwal of Sokoto State or Governor Bala Mohammed of Bauchi State. Adeyanju further alleged that the stakeholders are angry with Atiku for allegedly abandoning the party in the 2015 elections.
According to Adeyanju: “PDP stakeholders want to present Tambuwal or Bala Mohammed both serving Governors as presidential candidates and someone from South as VP in 2023.
“They say everybody is tired of the Dubai man with dollars. Why won’t you guys present him now? I want to see you guys in opposition for 16yrs.
“Many of them are so pained that the man abandoned their party after the election and relocated to Dubai for two years but is now back to start campaigning for another ticket.
“The only way PDP can get real sense is if they spend 16yrs in opposition. APC should present an acceptable candidate in 2023.”
