Factual Pursuit of Truth for Progress
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) says vice presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Kashim Shettima will not be able to save Bola Tinubu from defeat in Borno State despite being a former governor.
PDP in a statement by its spokesman, Hon. Debo Ologunagba boasted that it will take extra efforts for Tinubu, to secure 25% votes in most States of the country and particularly in Borno State, despite being the home State of the APC Vice-Presidential Candidate, Sen. Kashim Shettima.
“This is because, while Asiwaju Tinubu is not on ground being no match for PDP’s more popular and much loved Atiku Abubakar, the APC’s Vice Presidential Candidate, Kashim Shettima has since lost face with the citizens following his abysmal failure as Governor of the State.
“Since the emergence of Atiku Abubakar as Presidential Candidate of the PDP, the APC, particularly in Borno State has been disconcerted, confused and disorganized by the mass exodus of APC members into the PDP across the nooks and crannies of the State in support of Atiku Abubakar and the PDP,” the statement said.
According to PDP, over a million members of different parties in Borno State decamped to the opposition camp in the last one month.
