PDP-PCC: Some APC governors, senators are working for Atiku

The spokesman for the Atiku-Okowa Presidential Campaign Council, Daniel Bwala, insisted yesterday that the former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar, has the best chance of winning the election next month, claiming that some governors and senators elected on the platform of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, in the north were quietly working for the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, candidate.

His claim, however, was refuted by Nasarawa State governor, Abdullahi Sule, who stated that APC governors, particularly those in the north, were firmly behind the party’s presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu.

But speaking in an interview on Arise Television yesterday, Bwala said: “11 northern APC governors and I think 35 to 37 senators are quietly working for Atiku.

“If you noticed lately, at APC presidential campaigns, when they say Nigeria, the crowd will respond, saying Atiku. This is why in their last campaign in Kano on Wednesday, they stopped saying Nigeria because they know the crowd will definitely respond by saying Atiku.”

Pressed to name some of the APC governors working for Atiku, he refused, saying “even my four-yr-old son knows that you don’t reveal such information.”

He said this year’s presidential election was Atiku’s to win, adding that Atiku was firmly on the ground in the North East and North Central.
