Atiku Still Our Preferred Presidential Candidate – Oyo PDP Reiterates

According to the People’s Democratic Party of Oyo State, Atiku Abubakar is still the party’s presidential candidate in the general elections in 2023. Reiterates

The party emphasised that Atiku was its favoured presidential candidate and that it would back all of its candidates in the state.

Akeem Olatunji, the party’s state public relations officer, revealed this to The Punch over the phone on Monday in Ibadan.

You may recall that Atiku and five other party governors were at loggerheads over the removal of Iyorchia Ayu and the demand that the South provide the party’s National Chairman.

Olatunji said, “Our party in Oyo State is not alien to the PDP at the national level. PDP is still our party and is doing well, and we have a candidate, which is Atiku Abubakar. Atiku is still the candidate for the PDP in the state.”

“Even the four other governors, have they ever told you that they have other candidates?”

“The only thing in the state is that Governor Seyi Makinde is the biggest brand to market any candidate in the state, so as far as we are concerned, we are marketing all our candidates in the state under the PDP with the GSM brand, and as far as we are concerned, Atiku Abubakar is one of the candidates. So when it comes to party matters, we don’t have any other candidate than Atiku Abubakar.”
