Atiku reveals what will happen to PDP if it loses 2023 presidential election

Atiku Abubakar, former vice-president, has underscored the significance of 2023 presidential election to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

Pampamnews reports that Atiku said the survival of the party is precariously hinged on the outcome of next year’s presidential election.

Atiku, who spoke he met with members of the Board of Trustees (BOT) of the party on Tuesday, said the party go into the 2023 general election with a united front and eschew any form of division.

“I am worried and you should be worried too that if we do not win, it means we will be in opposition again for the next eight years,” he said.

He noted that losing the presidential election will consign the PDP to opposition for another eight years, and this will spell doom for the party as it could lead to mass defection to the ruling party as people tend to want to always align with the party in government.

“By the next eight years, I don’t know how many will be left in politics and it may even ultimately lead to the death of the party because people gravitate, particularly in developing countries, towards governments.

“Ordinary, people naturally gravitate towards the government. So this is a very crucial and historical moment in history for our survival, I want you to think about it. We are now at a crucial moment in this country. For many of you here, it is either we retire together or we move on together.”

While commending the performance of the party in the 2019 election, Atiku said the PDP can do better in 2023 if members work in unity.

“Somebody said that we recorded 12 million votes during the last election. Those are not only my votes, those were our votes. In achieving or recording those 11 million votes, it was all of us and I believe if we work together again, we can surpass those votes,” he said.
