The Senior Special Assistant to President on Media and Publicity, Mallam Garba Shehu has said there is no way the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) is winning the 2023 general elections.
Shehu, who spoke shortly after observing the Eid-El-Kabir prayers in Daura, Katsina State said the PDP was living false hopes of reclaiming power in 2023, accusing the opposition party of giving false hopes to Nigerians that the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) will be out of power by the next elections.
The presidential aide said it was time the PDP snaps out of the illusion because the masses will still reckon with President Muhammadu Buhari and will never abandon him.
“The President enjoys unshakable support not only in his hometown but also across the country and it is enough for the opposition to admit that the President matters a lot for the ruling party and Nigerians in general, again he constitutes a political obstacle they cannot dismantle come 2023,” he said.
He continued; “We believe the PDP and other opposition parties are nursing false hopes of taking power comes 2023.
“The masses will never abandon President Buhari’s leadership and the APC. I assure you that in 2023, the masses will be waiting for the President to show the way in courtesy of what he has been building for the country in terms of infrastructure and wellbeing of young people in the country.
“Nobody will take the risk by inviting another party to come and take over in 2023.”
