Saturday’s presidential elections have become more difficult for Bola Ahmed Tinubu to win as APC Support Group in the South West dumped the party’s standard bearer few hours before the elections.
The Coalition of APC Support Groups (Southwest Zone) has joined its national body to abandon the party and its presidential flagbearer, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, in favour of a rival on the People’s Democratic Party platform, Abubaker Atiku.
This was stated at a similar gathering held on Thursday in Osogbo, Osun State. Yahaya Majeed, the group’s leader, stated that the APC has failed the nation and that it is time for power to be returned to the PDP. After succumbing to pressure and joining the national body, Majeed hinted that all hands are on deck to get things in order ahead of the election on Monday, February 20th in Abuja.
“We are here today to replicate, in the south west region, what happened in Abuja on Monday 20 February. We are using this opportunity to tell the world we no longer belong to APC.
‘We are here to show to the world that the Coalition of APC Support Groups, an umbrella body of all recognized and certificated support groups of the APC, has renounced its allegiance and shift support for the actualization of Atiku/Okowa Presidency 2023 project.
“You will agree with me that Nigerians have endured enough in the last eight years with the poor governance of Buhari’s administration and APC, and it is high time we must collectively stop the mess created by Buhari, his government and the APC.
“We must therefore rise up to say enough is enough to the APC-led government for the betterment of our children unborn and for posterity to judge us right.
“We must collectively reject the wickedness call APC and make our voice loud through the ballots that Atiku/Okowa of the PDP is the answer we need to salvage the ruins caused by Buhari’s government,” the accountant turned politician stated.
