Support groups of the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Atiku Abubakar, have described as a blatant lie reports making the rounds that they defected to the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Reports have emerged earlier claiming that some political groups backing the candidacy of the Wazirin Adamawa dumped the PDP candidate to support the candidate of the APC, Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
However, on behalf of the groups, the Atiku Support Organisation noted in a statement on Monday morning that the claims were all lies.
The statement signed by the ASO National Publicity Secretary, Victor Moses, said the opposition camp supporters didn’t align with the APC dementia-infested and drug-trafficking camp as reported in the media earlier.
The statement read: “It has come to our attention of a fake story concocted by APC goons and making the rounds that some Atiku Support Groups have ditched the PDP for a dying APC.
“We wish to state clearly and unambiguously that the story is false and nothing but propaganda from the camp of the dementia-infested group of people of the APC and should be disregarded.”
APC Is A Dead Party
Moses reiterated that Atiku groups are as solid as a rock and like a fine wine and will keep getting better and growing in number every day ahead of the 2023 general elections.
He added: “The APC is a dead party that will cease to exist beginning in 2023. So, what business does the living has to do with the dead?
“By every indices, the APC has plunged Nigeria into a disaster and February 25th, 2023 will be judgment day.
“The forthcoming 2023 presidential election will be a referendum on the dementia-infested and cocaine-trafficking camp of the APC.
“Nigerians will among others decide between agents of light and agents of darkness, between a bag of rice at N7000 in 2015 under PDP and N50,000 in 2022 under the APC, between PMS at N67 under PDP and N300 under the APC, between $100 minimum wage under the PDP in 2015 and $40 minimum wage under the APC in 2022.
“Nigerians now know better. Only an Atiku Abubakar presidency can and will deliver Nigeria and usher us on the path of prosperity.”
According to him, no amount of propaganda by the APC can save the party from defeat in all elections and at all levels come 2023.
