The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, on Sunday expressed optimism of winning the presidential election.
The presidential election, which was conducted on Saturday is still being collated by the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC.
Abubakar is the closest rival to President Muhammadu Buhari of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in the race for the presidential seat.
In a statement by his campaign spokesperson, Phrank Shaibu, Abubakar urged Nigerians on the need to maximise their eternal vigilance in the next 48 hours to prevent the majority votes recorded at the polling units being disrupted by force by the APC at the collation centres.
The statement reads: “I would like to sincerely thank the millions of people who, despite having to bear the additional burden of a postponed election, came out yesterday to vote for me and the other PDP candidates standing in this election.
“With strong shares of vote in SS, SE as well as an increased share in SW and NC we are very pleased with the progress the PDP has made. We look forward to sharing some exciting news in other parts of the country very soon, which will confound all the armchair pundits.
The people of Nigeria can take solace that very soon the living Nightmare of the last four years will come to an end so that together we will get Nigeria working again.
“I am familiar with how brazen and the complete lack of shame the APC can exhibit, but even I was shocked to witness just how low they went last night by accusing the PDP of ‘recruiting armed thugs’ to do just that. Why would we want to do that when we are winning?”
“Furthermore I would like to say how proud I was of PDP supporters who conducted themselves so peacefully despite the significant provocations and threats of violence, removal and burning of ballot boxes and the likes.”
