The Peoples Democratic Party has said its presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, will shock President Muhammadu Buhari, who is the candidate of the All Progressives Congress, in the February 16 presidential election.
The Deputy National Publicity Secretary of the PDP, Mr Diran Odeyemi, said those who had promised to deliver the South-West votes to Buhari were deceiving him.
Speaking in an interview with SUNDAY PUNCH in Lagos on Friday, the PDP spokesperson stressed that Atiku would defeat Buhari in the South-West and in other geo-political zones.
The Oyo State Governor, Abiola Ajimobi, on Thursday, said Buhari would win convincingly in the South-West because he had performed well in the region, adding that Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo is a Yoruba man from the region was another factor.
Odeyemi said, “Governor Abiola Ajimobi, who is promising Buhari the votes of the South-West people, has just one vote and he knows that he is deceiving Buhari because he wants to get something. But they will be shocked after the election. Atiku will shock them in the South-West. The people of the South-West are waiting for the election to send them (APC) out because of the hardship the APC governors in the South-West states have inflicted on them.
“The maladministration of the APC in the states in the South-West will not make people to vote for Buhari and the APC in the coming elections.
“What has been the contribution of Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo? What political influence did he have before he became the Vice President and even now? Has his political profile been upgraded in any way? Osinbajo is not a political giant to be afraid of and he has no string to pull in the South-West. Not even (Asiwaju Bola) Tinubu, their godfather, can sway the people of the South-West to vote for Buhari.”

We have records to show how Buhari, APC rigged presidential election – Buba Galadima
Buba Galadima, Spokesman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Presidential Campaign Organisation, has revealed how the incumbent government allegedly rigged last month’s presidential election to retain its grip on power.
Galadima, an estranged ally of incumbent President Muhammadu Buhari, accused the All Progressives Congress (APC)-led federal government of using the military to intimidate voters and inflate election results in its favour.
He spoke on Wednesday while appearing as a guest on Channels TV’s breakfast show, Sunrise Daily.
Galadima said the events in Rivers State were evidence of the intimidation.
“It is not an accusation, the military are good candidates of the International Criminal Court. I saw it on television where they were going to houses killing people,” the Atiku spokesperson said.
He claimed that records are available to show that Atiku Abubakar of the PDP, won the presidential election.
“They said they won and want to go to court to inspect the election materials, that is clearly to show they rigged the election.
“I am speaking with authority and I can defend it in the court of law. Have you ever heard that a respondent went to court to check the results of an election because he was not sure his agents did the right thing?” he said.
