From Ndubuisi Orji, Abuja
Spokesperson of the Atiku/Okowa Presidential Campaign Organization, Kola Ologbondiyan, said the ” empty streets that stared at… Tinubu, in Kano, at the weekend, signposts the road to extinction for the APC ahead of the 2023 election.”
Ologbondiyan, in a statement, on Sunday, said,on the other hand the huge crowd that received Atiku at his campaign rally in Benin City, the Edo State capital, and other parts of the country are proofs that Nigerians are rooting for the PDP presidential candidate in the 2023 general elections.
The campaign spokesperson noted that the alleged “thoughtless display of opulence” by Tinubu ” at his flopped Kano visit was completely repugnant and offensive to the people of Kano State, who cannot be swayed by pointless material showboating. “
Ologbondiyan admonished the APC candidate to immediately apologize and refrain from undertaking such trips and actions.
According to him, “Nigerians in Kano watched in awe as a convoy of vehicles paraded the streets of Kano municipal without eliciting any attention from bystanders who went about their normal businesses.
“In a recorded video that has gone viral, one of the bystanders was heard saying; ‘God has shown them clearly that people aren’t supporting them. No one is concerned about them. It is very shameful; Kano people are not with them”
He added that unlike the APC candidate’s outing in Kano, Atiku’s presidential campaign is gaining more traction across the country, because of his tenacity in addressing the issues and challenges allegedly brought upon Nigerians by the APC.
“His( Atiku’s) determination to revive the economy while making the unity of our nation number one priority sits well among Nigerians.He has also sworn to make insecurity a part of our sordid past by making State Police a plank of the security solutions he will introduce when sworn into office on May 29, 2023.
“Atiku is bringing the light to our dark side. He is creating hope in our state of disillusionment”, Ologbondiyan stated.
