2023: To Stop Tinubu From Becoming President, Atiku, Obi, Kwakwaso Need Alliance- Adeyanju

Deji Adeyanju

Convener of Concerned Nigerians Group, Deji Adeyanju, has said that the opposition frontliners in the 2023 presidential election, Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP); Peter Obi of Labour Party (LP) and Rabiu Musa Kwankwanso of the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP), need to form an alliance to be able to defeat the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.

Adeyanju said that it is sad that ‘big ideas’ don’t win elections in Africa, saying that for the opposition to take power from the APC, they must form an alliance.

He said that he has monitored over 39 elections in Nigeria and outside the country, insisting that ‘big ideas’ don’t win elections in this clime except ‘stomach infrastructure’.

Speaking on LEADERSHIPTwitterSpaces @LeadershipNGA at the weekend, Adeyanju noted that even though the presidential candidates have been meeting secretly and openly, they were unserious about taking over power in 2023.

“They have been meeting secretly and openly. They are completely unserious political parties heading for a defeat,” Adeyanju said of the PDP, LP and the NNPP.

“Big ideas don’t win elections in Africa. What wins elections in this part of the world is tribe, ethnicity, religion, rigging, vote buying, stomach infrastructure. What the opposition are doing now will not help them. Wike may not work for Atiku if he is not sure he will win.

“No politicians want to be identified with failure. Peter Obi is good but it is not possible for Atiku to step down for him. So, they must unite. It is common sense.

“We know the states where these candidates will win. When the results start coming from the KKK states, there will be throttling. Atiku, Obi, Kwankwanso must form a force. They should put somebody forward. Kwankwaso is already working for Tinubu because he does not want Atiku to emerge,” Adeyanju claimed.

Also speaking, the chairman of Emohua local government area of Rivers State, Hon. Chidi Lloyd, accused the Atiku camp of already boasting as if they have won the election.

“We can’t afford to go to this election with a divided house. The Atiku people are already talking as if they have won the election already,” Llyod said.

On his part, a member of the PDP in Kaduna State, Danjuma Bello Sarki, said he was confident that the PDP will win the 2023 presidential election.

According to Sarki, Nigerians can’t afford to allow the ruling APC to continue in 2023.

“Atiku is reaching out and by the grace of God, PDP will win because Nigerians can’t afford to allow the APC to continue,” Danjuma said.

A speaker, Charles Ideho, who said Atiku made a mistake in picking Governor Ifeanyi Okowa as a running mate, added that the Delta State governor doesn’t have the political muscle to produce votes from the South as expected.
