The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has said that overwhelming acceptance accorded its presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, in the South East has sent the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, panicking.
The opposition party said the acceptance demonstrated the settled resolve of Nigerians across board to vote out the President Muhammadu Buhari administration because of its manifest failures in governance.
A statement on Thursday by the spokesman for the PDP, Kola Ologbondiyan, said the PDP was aware of how the acceptance of its candidate had sent jitters to the APC and President Buhari.
The statement said, “With the assemblage of all leaders of note in every sector from all the five states of the Southeast receiving our candidate, it is settled that President Buhari and the APC do not have any support in the zone.
“This acceptance could not have been less significant because the Buhari-led APC administration has no achievement, of any sort, in the entire zone.
“The PDP commends the people of the Southeast and Nigerians in general for their courage in collectively resolving to rally with Atiku and our other candidates to rescue our nation from shackles of the Buhari administration and return her to the path of good governance, national cohesion and economic prosperity”.
