Atiku believes the APC will die after 2023.
Atiku Abubakar, the Peoples Democratic Party’s presidential candidate, has predicted that the All Progressives Congress will collapse after the 2023 general elections.
On Thursday, Atiku stated this at the inauguration of the PDP Youth Campaign Council in Abuja.
The PDP candidate said, “To be honest PDP is the only political party, APC is not a political party, it is an alliance between the CPC and Tinubu’s party, and we have seen how alliances in this country has disappeared over night.
“I don’t think APC would survive after this election, we are going to vote them out and by the time we vote them out, they will be dead.”
He described the PDP as Nigeria’s only true and longest-surviving political party, emphasizing that members, particularly youths, should be proud of their affiliation.
Atiku said, “We are 25 years now, so we have succeeded in laying the foundation for a sustained Democracy in our country.
“You have a legacy to be proud of by being a member of this political party. Let me therefore charge you with the responsibility of making sure that you carry the message of the PDP to the nooks and crannies of the country. “
Speaking directly to members of the council, the candidate said, “Let me congratulate to the members of the PDP Youth Campaign Youth Council for being inaugurated today.
“PDP is making history in the sense that we are the first political party in the country to inaugurate a youth Council.
“But this is not a surprise because we are the oldest political party in the history of Nigeria, since the creation of Nigeria, there have never been a political party as old as PDP. “
He equally said, “fundamentally, the message of Sustained democracy, this democracy some of us fought for it, all our lives.
“Many of us have sacrificed our lives and today you have a freedom of speech, movement, and freedom of everything simply because some of us have sacrificed our lives to make sure there is democracy in this country.
“This is the fundamental message we are expecting you to take to all the nooks and crannies of your Constituency.
“The youth council is another step to further enthroned democracy, sustain democracy in our country through our political parties. Therefore I charge you to mobilize all Nigerians in particular PDP supporters.
“Let me tell you, no matter your background PDP will allow you to be anything you want to become in life. Because my five programs I sat down by myself to write, I did not give it to any professor or Doctor to write it for me”.
“If you study those points from National Unity to Security to Education, you will find out that they seamlessly interconnect with each other,” he said of his five-point agenda for the rescue Nigeria Project.
“Therefore, I want assure you that no matter your background PDP will help you to achieve your aspirations in this country.Even if Atiku leaves, another Atiku will emerge.
“The members here are representative of the youths across the country who are in millions, who are the most voters in this country, you have a responsibility and it is not a small one.
“ Each and every one of you should go back to your state, local Government, wards and polling units and mobilize the youths. Give them hope that all is not lost.
“APC has dashed the hope of Nigerians in the last seven years and we do not expect that they will be any change in the next five to six months.
Earlier, the Vice Presidential candidate, Ifeanyi Okowa, said the choice of members of the council was a pointer to the fact that the future of youths under the incoming PDP administration is assured.
According to him, the Nigeria of the last seven years is not the Nigeria we desire. If we make the right decision, the future is not bleak.
Suleiman Kadede, who also spoke at the event, urged his colleagues to spread the message throughout the country because the election will be held at the grassroots level. He assured the youths that they were prepared to carry out their mandate.
