The ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) has said it would defeat the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar, in the North East zone, where he hails from.
The APC deputy national publicity secretary, Hon. Murtala Yakubu Ajaka, in a statement on Sunday, said the APC presidential rally in Borno on Saturday had shown that not even the biting cashless policy would stop the people of the North East region from coming out en masse to vote for the party’s presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu.
Ajaka, who attended the presidential rally, thanked the state governor and people of Borno for coming out en mass to support their son and vice presidential candidate of the party, Senator Kashim Shettima.
“The Borno outing is a clear message for the PDP and its presidential candidate that a surprise awaits them in the North East.
“The people of Borno State have spoken loudly and the message is clear that they are for the APC,” he said.
Ajaka expressed confidence that the APC would not only win in the North East but emerge victorious across the country.
