olafesus He said the confidence was born not out of arrogance or wishful thinking, but out of the people’s overwhelming support for the PPD.
“The number of people who attended the January 4 Freedom Walk atiku abubakar in Ibadan, Oyo state, it was massive and “shows the willingness of the people of the south-west to support the PDP presidential candidate.
“So we are not afraid. We are going to win the Southwest, and we are going to win much better than in 2019.
“We are aware and we are aware that the Southwest is the battleground for the February 25 elections, but the PDP is ready because our leaders are ready, the party members are ready, even the citizens are ready to say goodbye to APC. . ” he said.
Olafeso also said the party was more united now than before, adding that party candidates from senate to assembly members understand that their fate and future depend on Atiku Abubakar’s victory.
Speaking about the complaints of G5 governors, Olafeso said that “the number of governors any party has, whether in the Southwest or in the country, would not determine the party’s success at the polls.
According to him, the current confrontation between some governors and the presidential candidate of the PPD cannot jeopardize the success of the party because we have survived the worst and are moving towards the best.
“I have consistently said that the opinions of governors are not necessarily the opinions of the people because governors will also be judged based on their performance in their states.
“So, it is not the number of governors that will make you win the election, it is the people. And thank goodness for technology, BVAS is coming to speak while the era of ballot or ballot theft is long gone.
“Many people will be hospitalized due to shock long after the general election on February 25 because what matters is the votes of the people and not the number of governors a party has.” he said.
The PDP leader said he is confident in the ability and competence of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to conduct a credible election and called on Nigerians to vote for Atiku Abubakar for the betterment of the country.
“Hope is coming, Atiku is coming because he has made a pact with the Nigerian people on restructuring, returning power to the grassroots, improving education and better management of our resources, among others.
“If Atiku Abubakar is elected president, it will be launched immediately and the country will see its outstanding performance in the first 100 days, and the Nigerian bailout will begin in full force.” said Ophesus.
