The Director, Media and Publicity of the All Progressive Congress, APC, Presidential Campaign Council, Bayo Onanuga, has said that it’s presidential candidate Bola Ahmed Tinubu has a higher chance in securing the 2023 presidency than his counterparts.
Onanuga shared his thoughts on the candidacy of his principal during an interview on the Arise TV Morning Show program on Thursday.
He insisted that the Labour Party candidate, Peter Obi is simply a social media creation and phenomenon that would not amount to anything at the polls.
’’The last statement I issued was about Peter Obi being a social media creation, which I believe he is a social media creation; very soon, he will pan out. He will fade out. So that’s the position,’’ he declared.
He went on to share his thoughts on how the 2023 election would be won.
“We are not really troubled about whatever people perceive as happening. We are strong in the South West; everybody should know that; that is the home base of our presidential candidate. Whatever happened in Osun State was a local issue. Probably the people didn’t want the government to come back, but it’s going to be a different ball game in the presidential election; we are very certain of that.”
He insisted that APC had made great leaps in the South East and South-South, hence his believe that they would defeat Peter Obi and Atiku Abubakar.
“We are making inroads into the South East. Don’t forget that there are two APC states in the South East. If the people decide to follow the ‘Obedients’ or the PDP, we are sure that we are going to win, at least the minimum votes in Ebonyi and Imo states. Which is a very good one. That’s what we are projecting,” he added.
Speaking further, he stated that Delta, Edo and Rivers were strong APC allies.
Speaking on the ruling party chances in the north, he argued that North central and North West belong to them adding that Obidients does not stand a chance in those territories.
“Don’t forget that our Vice Presidential candidate comes from the North East region where Atiku comes from. We already believed that we have at least two states in our pocket: Borno and Yobe. And we are going to make a lot of incursions in other states, including Adamawa state, where Atiku hails from.
‘’So we are going to win this election, hands down. We are going to beat Atiku, and he knows we are going to beat him,’’ he noted.
