The National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Senator Adamu Abdullahi has confessed that he does not underestimate Peter Obi of the Labour Party, the Peoples Democratic Party and other opposition political parties and their candidates ahead of the 2023 general elections.
The APC strong man, during an interview on Arise TV today, July 17, stressed that he has no reason whatsoever to doubt his opponents in the 2023 race, admitting that the National Chairman of the PDP, Iyorchia Ayu and Peter Obi, as well as others, mean well for Nigerians.
“Honestly, I have never underestimated the capacity of my opponents; I will not do so now. This is not the first time I will be party chairman. I have been secretary of the party. I have been chairman of the party at the state level. I have faced elections. I have won some and lost some, and I have no reason whatsoever to doubt my opponents.
“The gentleman who is chairman of PDP is a friend of mine. We have known even before we got these positions.
“Peter Obi; I knew him when he was governor of Anambra state. I visited him. These are people who mean well as far as I’m concerned. From their outbursts they mean well. They are well grounded. I don’t have doubts about that.
“So I have no reason whatsoever to underestimate their ability to lead their people to victory.”
Abdullahi Adamu, however, boasted that the ruling party is more organized than the opposition parties ahead of the 2023 general elections.
He said: “I am telling you that we are better organized. We have a higher number of followership. We have got the register of members of the party, you can verify it.
“These other parties don’t have.
“I don’t contemplate any situation that will make us not win the election in 2023.”
