Atiku, Obi lack staying power to be president – APC

The ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) says both the 2023 poll presidential candidates of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar, and his counterpart of the Labour Party (LP), Peter Obi, lack the staying power to be entrusted with the exalted seat of the presidency.

APC’s stance comes in response to recent speculations fueled by a visit from Atiku and Obi, suggesting a possible alliance between the two or a merger of their political parties in anticipation of the 2027 elections.

APC’s national publicity secretary, Mr Felix Morka, however in a statement on Tuesday, remarked that the renewed plot by the duo to unseat President Bola Ahmed Tinubu should not be seen as a surprising development.

APC described the duo of Atiku and Obi as political wayfarers with a well-established reputation as the country’s most itinerant politicians.

APC assured that Prof Pat Utomi’s proposed mega party remains a figment with no offering of tangible accommodation for both political gladiators.

The party said, “Atiku and Obi are united by their mutual desperation to be President of Nigeria and ignoble disdain for President Bola Tinubu’s focused and extraordinary commitment to the transformation of our nation. Their restless drift in search of convenient party platforms to execute their presidential run only belie the self-indulgent and opportunistic essence of their aspirations.

” Men without the staying power to build or fix their own parties, who flee at the slightest flicker of internal crisis cannot possibly be trusted by Nigerians to tackle serious and complex national political and economic challenges that confront our nation.

“President Bola Tinubu embodies character, vision, tenacity and doggedness required to deliver a resurgent Nigeria of stable growth and development. The administration’s bold economic policy reforms and massive infrastructural uptake have already shattered historic barriers to growth, and paved the way for steady progress and development.”

The party thereby urged Nigerians to stand firm in their invaluable support for President Bola Tinubu who is determined to deliver a stronger, more secure and more prosperous Nigeria.
