The All Progressives Congress (APC) says Nigerians will not vote for the Peoples Democratic Party(PDP) in 2023.
The ruling party said this in a reaction to a statement by former Vice-President Atiku Abubakar
On Thursday, Abubakar said Nigerians can’t wait for the PDP to return to power, adding that the country is in such a bad taste.
“I believe Nigerians can’t wait for 2023 to come so that PDP will return,” Atiku told reporters after a meeting with Nyesom Wike, Rivers governor.
“I have never seen it this bad, I’m seventy plus. I have never seen it this bad in terms of security challenges, in terms of unemployment. I have never seen it so bad — this is the worst.”
But in a statement issued on Friday by the national secretary of the APC national caretaker committee, John Akpanudoedehe, said the nothing good can come out of the PDP.
“Alhaji Atiku Abubakar ought to know that Nigerians can never return to Egypt again. They cannot vote the PDP in 2023 having tested the party and known that it is a failure. In other words, nothing good can come out of PDP,” the national secretary said.
“They were there for 16 years without anything to show for it. The achievements of our party in the less than eight years in power has eclipsed the PDP 16 wasted years.
“APC is not in the class with the PDP in many ways.”
