Dele Momodu, the Director of Strategic Communications for the Peoples Democratic Party Presidential Campaign Council, has stated that the party’s candidate, Atiku Abubakar, will be elected President of Nigeria in the upcoming election.
Momodu dismissed polls conducted by surveying agencies that predicted victories for Bola Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress or Labour Party’s Peter Obi.
“The North will not vote for a “fake Muslim” in the name of a pretentious and mischievous Muslim/Muslim ticket. The scam is dead on arrival,” he declared.
Justifying this position, Momodu argued that “The North East will never vote for a number two position when they have been chasing the number one since 1966. The North West will not abandon an Atiku for a Tinubu who is well known for his iron grip on Lagos State since 1999.
“The South-West itself knows it has the most controversial and palpably weakest candidate in this race this time and would humbly and readily accept its fate with equanimity.
He argued that these polls were unreliable and that Atiku’s dominance in the North-East, North-West, North-Central and South-South regions, as well as his strong second place showing in the South-East and South-West, would secure him the presidency.
Momodu also stated that the reliance on rigging and bribing the electorate would not be successful and that the North and South-South would make Atiku the next President.
