The Tinubu-Shettima presidential Campaign Group has dismissed the chances of the Labour Party presidential bearer in 2023 general elections, insisting that the All Progressives Congress (APC) would win massive votes in almost all the regions in the country.
Appearing on Arise TV on Thursday, Director of Media and Publicity for the group, Bayo Onanuga said the Southeast region where Obi is from is up for take, reminding Nigerians the APC controls two of the five states in the region.
“We sure of winning the required votes in all the states in the South-east. APC also has a strong presence in the South-south, especially in Delta and Rivers states. Same thing for the Northeast, Northcentral and Northwest,” Onanuga said.
Reacting to claims that he accused Obi of breaking the law over his campaign fund issues, Onanuga said, “ “I never said Peter Obi was breaking the law but I did say he is a social media creation and he will pan out very soon. The statement didn’t emanate from us regarding Diaspora funds.
“We also want to appeal to the media that the issue of Diaspora funds didn’t emanate from us; a lot of people who spread this news don’t represent the party”, he concluded.
Onanuga said the presidential candidate of the ruling party, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, would leverage the monumental achievements of the Buhari-led administration when the real campaigns kick off.
“Bola Ahmed Tinubu will be campaigning based on the bold legacies of the PMB Govt and there are many achievements despite the fake news in the media. Of course, there are challenges but the issues are being redressed.
“There seem to be a conspiracy in the media not to showcase the achievements of the Government especially the successes against the terrorists and bandits in the North East. Under this administration, the tech sector witnessed a boom which has aided the economy”, Onanuga claimed.
