A former National Publicity Secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Kola Ologbondiyan, has knocked Ibrahim Masari, the former placeholder of the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu over his recent statement.
Naija News recalls that Masari during an interview with BBC Hausa Service on Wednesday claimed that Wike and some PDP governors would work for Tinubu‘s emergence as president in 2023.
However, Ologbondiyan, speaking on Channels TV on Friday, dismissed Masari’s statement, describing it as lame and there is no truth in it.
According to him, the PDP governors have no reason or basis to vote for Tinubu, especially as Nigerians have distanced themselves from the party that has become a burden, in the last seven years.
Ologbondiyan added that the opposition governors have seen the failure of the APC and won’t vote for the ruling party next year.
He said: “The assertion by Asiwaju Bola Tinubu’s placeholder, Ibrahim Masari, that PDP governors will vote for the All Progressives Congress candidate, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, is lame. It is an assertion that is not predicated on fact and as such, it cannot be taken seriously by Nigerians.
“The PDP governors have no reason and have no basis to go and vote for the candidate of the All Progressives Congress in view of the fact that Nigerians have already distanced themselves from the processes of the All Progressives Congress and Nigerians, upon whom the APC has become a burden in the last seven years, are looking for every way and means to reject them at the poll.
“So, it does not add that those governors of PDP who have seen the failure of the All Progressives Congress will vote for the APC. It doesn’t add up. Members of the PDP have dismissed the assertion (by Masari) because there is no truth in it; it is lame.”
