A spokesperson of the Tinubu/Shettima Presidential Campaign Council, Festus Keyamo has described as disaster the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP’s launching of its 2023 presidential campaign over the absence of the Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers state at the event.

The PDP presidential candidate,  Atiku Abubakar, on Monday kick-started his presidential campaign in Uyo, Akwa-Ibom State.

Reacting, Mr Keyamo, in a statement on Monday, said the absence of Mr Wike and other PDP governors was a warning signal that the party would have a woeful outing during the election.

The APC campaign spokesperson added that he found the presence of the embattled National Chairman of the party, Iyorchia Ayu, on the podium promising the PDP would change the fortune of the country a huge joke.

He said: “When you have a flag-off campaign that is shunned by the national vice-chairmen of the South-South, South-West, and five sitting governors out of thirteen, that is a definitive and resounding red-flag that Nigerians should not vote the presidential candidate of the PDP in this coming election.

“If the people’s representatives at the state levels are so unanimously against their party’s candidate that they would shun his campaign launch, then indeed, we would say to Nigerians, A word is enough for the wise.

“Has he been able to fulfill the promise he made to himself and his party members to step down from office should a northerner emerge as the presidential candidate at their party primaries?

“How can a party that cannot unite itself promise to unite Nigeria? How can a party that brazenly violates its own constitution on zoning be trusted to obey the constitution of Nigeria if again trusted with power?

“Fortunately, to the benefit of Nigerians, there remains a few good men within PDP. These honourable men belonging to the party’s NWC, deemed it right to return hundreds of millions of naira allegedly transferred into their individual bank accounts as “hush money” to suppress the investigation of the scandal of humongous financial misappropriation leveled against their national chairman,” he said.
