APC can’t survive beyond 2023 — Atiku
NEWS DIGEST – The presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Atiku Abubakar, said the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, will not survive beyond the 2023 election.
The former vice-president, who made the remark on Thursday at the inauguration of the National Youth Campaign Council of the PDP, said the APC is an “alliance” that would disappear after next year’s polls.
“To be honest, PDP is the only political party in the country; APC is not a political party, it is an alliance between the CPC and Tinubu’s party, and we have seen how alliances in this country have disappeared overnight, I don’t think APC would survive after this election, we are going to vote them out come 2023.
“This democracy we have in Nigeria, some of us fought for it with all our lives. Many sacrificed their lives for the freedom of speech, movement and freedom of everything we enjoy today,” Mr Abubakar said.
He said the PDP, being a youth-friendly party and the oldest party in the country, was the first to inaugurate a youth campaign council.
According to him, the decision was a step to further enthrone and sustain democracy in the country through the PDP.
“PDP is making history in the sense that we are the first political party in the country to inaugurate a youth council. But this is not a surprise because we are the oldest political party in the history of Nigeria.
He, therefore, charged members of the council to work for the victory of the party at all levels and give Nigerian youths hope despite the disappointing performance of the APC in the last seven years.
