Atiku Should Leave Presidential Race, Obi Not Even In The Race At All – APC Edo PCC Directorate

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential candidate Alhaji Atiku Abubakar and his Labour Party (LP) counterpart, Peter Obi, have been urged by the Edo State Media and Publicity Directorate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Presidential Campaign Council (PCC) to abandon their aspirations for the APC candidate, Bola Ahmed Tinubu.

This was said by the team at a meeting with journalists in Benin City. John Mayaki, the team’s chairman, also clarified Tinubu’s remark about yahoo boys at the presidential rally in Benin City, which he said was misunderstood.

Other Directorate leaders who spoke at the ceremony, including Osamede Nath, Ohio Odihiri, Dan Osa-Ogbegie, Dennis Eribo, and Augustine Osaghae, noted that the Edo state government, led by Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, embraced the Oracle financial system, which was developed by Tinubu in Lagos state and is still in use today.

Mayaki said: “When we talk of structure, look at Kano, Edo rally, look  at Abuja rally, look at  Lagos rally, look at Arewa in Lagos alone when you look at all those you will talk of structure even without Tinubu being there you see the masses that are coming out, now when you get to the polling unit who knows the Labour party man?”

“Go to PDP the man is not campaigning there is this scare, there is this information going around that either the man is broke or he doesn’t want to spend money because he is not sure and so he is taking it easy and he is also banking on a last-minute collapse of some governors and co, this man should just go home and rest, we call on Atiku to please just leave the race. As for Obi, we know he is not in the race already, we know Obi is not in the race, as for Atiku he should just surrender, it is not a crime for him to surrender”

He said “Asiwaju has been abused and vilified considering his age but recently we can see that this man is strong, he is able and agile. I mean he has been traversing the nooks and crannies of this country he has not missed a day, even the Edo rally was supposed to have been postponed because of logistic reasons but he still came anyhow, and immediately he left Edo he was going to another state.”

He said Tinubu’s statement on yahoo boys was a reference to turning the potential of young people to productivity “Asiwaju made mention of Yahoo boy in his statement, he wasn’t referring to Edo State in particular. Those boys I use to tell people that for you to be able to sit down and manipulate people all over the world and collect the money you must be very brilliant. So what Asiwaju is simply saying is “these boys you can harness them.”
