With the 2023 election drawing nearer, former Kogi West Senator, Dino Melaye, on Saturday stated the presidential Aspirants of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Labour Party, LP, and New Nigeria Peoples Party, NNPP, aren’t any risk to the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, candidate, Atiku Abubakar.
Melaye stated Bola Tinubu, Peter Obi, and Rabiu Kwankwaso don’t revel in national acceptability like Atiku.
He noted that Atiku is the one presidential candidate that would garner 25% of votes in all states.
In a Facebook post, the previous lawmaker recounted how President Muhammadu Buhari defeated Atiku with not up to three million votes in 2019.
Melaye wrote: “Even if almighty Buhari supposedly gained the 2019 election, Which isn’t proper. The variation between his votes and that of Atiku was once not up to 3 million. Atiku gained 17states + FCT, and Buhari gained 19 states. Just one state in between. Atiku scored over 11 million votes and had 25% throughout 2/3 of the entire states in Nigeria.
“None of Tinubu, Peter Obi, Kwankwaso and co can ever enjoy national acceptability like Buhari. In other words, APC has no candidate who’s a threat to Atiku. Giving without conceding that Obi will pull majority votes in the South Eastern part of Nigeria whose total votes is less than 3 million votes.
“Be wise and vote the right fellow countrymen and women. Atiku remains the only symbol of National Unity and hope for Nigeria and Nigerians.
“It’s a known fact that Atiku has the ability to clinch more than 25% votes in all states across Nigeria.
“Atiku is not a contestant, he’s an awaiting President. Get your PVC, Get Atikulated so we can get Nigeria fixed and united again.”
