- This may not be the best of times for the APC and its presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
- The reason is that, according to Dino Melaye, an opinion poll has revealed that Atiku Abubakar is the leading presidential candidate in Nigeria.
- Melaye, via Facebook on Sunday, January 29, even claimed that the survey was carried out by a firm hired by the APC.
The spokesman for the presidential campaign council of the Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP), Dino Melaye, has hit the Congress of All Progressives (APC) with another grave statement.
Via Facebook on Sunday, January 29, Melaye, a former federal legislator from Kogi state, alleged that an unidentified firm hired by APC to conduct an opinion poll on which presidential candidate is most popular has released its result.
According to Melaye, the company discovered that Atiku Abubakar, the PDP’s presidential standard-bearer, is far ahead of Tinubu.
Melaye added that the organization presented its report with Atiku leading the poll by a wide margin.
“Tinubu on Panic Mood as a private company contracted by Apc to conduct a think tank on the upcoming presidential election presented its report with Atiku leading by a reasonable margin.
“After a meeting last night, APC was triggered by the colossal disappointment at Zamfara yesterday.
“APC resolved that the only path to victory is manipulation. As we know, INEC President has already raised the alarm to those trying to hack into his server. Nigerians, take note. For PDP, we will stop them… this is a promise. “
Elections 2023: Melaye talks about the evidence of Tinubu’s criminality
Dino Melaye, a spokesman for Atiku’s presidential campaign council, has said there is evidence of criminality linked to Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
Melaye said this in response to a claim by a self-proclaimed former Atiku Abubakar aide, Mike Achimugu, that the former vice president used the special purpose vehicles to usurp funds while in office.
In his defense of Atiku, Melaye noted that his director is not the only former vice president of Nigeria, adding that people meet him on the streets daily and greet him warmly.
