The Peoples Democratic Party’s (PDP) presidential candidate Alhaji Atiku Abubakar thinks the Labour Party has no chance of winning the 2023 election.

On Friday, July 22, 2022, during an interview on Arise TV, stated he does not anticipate the LP receiving as many votes as many Nigerians are speculating.

Atiku based his assertion on how well his party fared in the just completed gubernatorial election in Osun state.

He said that the Labour Party did not have governors, representatives in the national assembly, or state legislatures.

He said, “I really don’t expect the Labour Party to take as many votes from the PDP as people are suggesting.

“We could have seen it in the last election in Osun state. What is the performance of the Labour Party?

“This is a party that doesn’t have a governor, doesn’t have members of the national assembly, doesn’t have state assembly members, and politics in this country depends on the structures you have at the various levels — at the local government level, at the state level, and at the national level.”

Further, Atiku said that the Labour Party will lose the election because Peter Obi was chosen as the party’s presidential candidate.

He implied that social media plays a significant role in the party’s campaign, noting that 90% of people in the north do not use social media.

He said, “So, it is very difficult to expect a miracle to happen, simply because Peter Obi is in the Labour Party. After all, they were saying through social media, that they had more than one million votes in Osun state.

“But how many voters turned for the Labour Party? And then again, mark you, you’re talking about social media. In the north, 90 percent of our people are not tuned to social media.”

The PDP’s candidates for president and vice president in the 2019 presidential election were Atiku and Obi.
