The presidential candidate of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) Atiku Abubakar, said the Labour Party (LP) can’t win the Presidential election because over 90 per cent of northerners are not on Social Media.
While speaking in an exclusive interview with Arise TV which was aired Friday morning, Atiku questioned the performance of the LP in the just concluded governorship election in Osun.
He said, “they were saying through social media they have more than 1 million votes in Osun State. But how many people turned out to vote for the Labour Party.
Atiku, however, said 90 per cent of the Northern people are not into social media, insinuating that it will limit the chances of the LP winning the 2023 presidential election.
He questioned “What is the performance of the Labour Party? This is a party that does not have a governor; doesn’t have members of the national assembly; doesn’t have state assembly members.
According to him, “Politics in this country depends on the structures you have at these various levels – at the local government level; at the state level; and the national level. So, it is very very difficult to expect a miracle to happen simply because Peter Obi is in the Labour Party.”
