‘Governorship Election Will Expose Presidential Poll As Sham’ – Atiku
With a few days to the governorship and House of Assembly elections, the Peoples Democratic Party, (PDP) presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, has declared the exercise would expose the presidential poll as a sham.
Naija News reports that the former vice president made this known on Wednesday, in a video addressing Nigerians, which was shared by his spokesman, Paul Ibe.
According to Atiku, Nigerians should disregard the flaws of the presidential election and come out en mass to cast their votes.
Atiku also urged Nigerians to vote for candidates of the PDP during Saturday’s governorship and state House of Assembly elections across the country.
He said: “As the March 18 governorship and House of Assembly elections beckon, I urge you as patriotic citizens to come out in your numbers to cast your votes because that is one of the ways you can use to demonstrate against the sham of an election on February 25.
“As you cast your votes peacefully this Saturday in observance of the electoral and INEC guidelines, be sure to do so for the candidates of the PDP, the only truly national party for the greater and prosperous Nigeria”
Your Failure Was Self-inflicted, Restrain Your Attack Dogs
The Rivers State Government has urged former Vice President and Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, to call his spokespersons to order.
In a statement on Tuesday in Port Harcourt, the state capital, the Information and Communications Commissioner Chris Finebone described Phrank Shuaibu and Daniel Bwala as Atiku’s attack dogs.
He warned the duo to stop their attacks on Governor Nyesom Wike, adding that the PDP chieftains were yet to recover from their defeat at the presidential election.
