The presidential candidate of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) has dismissed the chances of the Labour Party (LP) and its presidential candidate Peter Obi in 2023 polls.
The party and Obi, he said, won’t go far less alone to cause an upset as widely believed based on social media trends.
Atiku, who spoke in an interview with Arise TV on Friday, assured the Labour Party cannot eat into the traditional PDP strongholds as suggested.
He said the just-concluded Osun governorship election has shown the Labour Party and Obi stand no chance at all in 2023
“What is the performance of the Labour Party? This is a party that does not have a Governor; doesn’t have members of the national assembly; doesn’t have state assembly members.
“Politics in this country depends on the structures you have at these various levels – at the local government level; at the state level; and at the national level. So, it is very ,very difficult to expect a miracle to happen simply because Peter Obi is in the Labour Party.
“After all, they were saying through social media they have more than 1 million votes in Osun State. But how many people turned out to vote for the Labour Party?’’
Atiku pointed out 90 percent of northern voters are not on social media and won’t be assuaged by the noise from it.
