Atiku is weakest among top presidential candidates — Oshiomhole
Former Edo State governor, Adams Oshiomhole has argued that the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar is the “weakest link” among the leading presidential candidates for the 2023 election.
He said the leading presidential candidates are Atiku, Bola Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress (APC), and Peter Obi of the Labour Party (LP).
The former APC national chairperson said the main opposition – PDP – is a “house divided against itself” owing to the row between the party and five of its governors dubbed the ‘Integrity Group’.
He said Tinubu will win the 2023 presidential election because the five governors have done “some damage to the reputation” of Atiku.
“PDP is a house divided against itself and the real damage being done to the reputation of the PDP candidate, Atiku Abubakar, is those governors, not unknown quantities, who had never decamped from PDP, who could be called PDP indigenes, they have spoken to the fact that you cannot trust the PDP candidate, Atiku Abubakar, and therefore they withdrew from the campaign council,” Oshiomhole said.
“If five people have reasons to question the character of Atiku Abubakar that you can’t trust his words, that he can’t even manage his own party and can’t grant concessions, he is so fixated about certain things.
“He is totally insensitive to project Nigeria — the need to keep Nigeria together. It is not difficult to see why Atiku cannot win.”
