According to the All Progressives Congress (APC), Peter Obi, the Labour Party’s presidential candidate, is now merely taking advantage of the social media fever.
Yakubu Murtala Ajaka, the APC’s deputy national publicity secretary, claimed in an interview with media on Sunday in Abuja that former Anambra State Governor Obi would fall short once the official campaigning began.
He said that Nigerians had been duped by Peter Obi and the PDP’s presidential candidate.
The APC deputy spokesman said that Obi and Atiku cannot make a difference, but added that when voting for the general elections in 2023 gets underway, Nigerians would distinguish between the boys and the men.
Ajaka said: “Just like Kwankwaso, Peter Obi is only enjoying sectional sympathy, but a real presidential candidate needs to enjoy acceptability from all parts of the country.
“So, we believe that Peter Obi should enjoy his social media frenzy for now before the real campaign starts very soon.”
He stated that his party’s presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, does not feel threatened by Atiku and the PDP.
According to him, the PDP might not even come second in the 2023 election following the results of the Ekiti State governorship election.
He said, “PDP and Atiku are good customers to APC who cannot go beyond coming second at any election, even that second position has been threatened with the recent result of Ekiti governorship election.”
