The Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Atiku ABUBAKAR has vowed that those ganging up against him in the battle to succeed President Muhammadu BUHARI in the forthcoming election would be defeated.
Atiku, who spoke through the Spokesperson, PDP Presidential Campaign Management Committee, Dino MELAYE, also accused the presidential flagbearer of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Bola Tinubu of masterminding the crisis rocking the PDP.
It could be recalled that Governor Nyesom WIKE of Rivers State, on Friday criticised the former vice president, Atiku and the PDP National Chairman, Iyorchia Ayu, and vowed to continue the fight until his demands are met.
Wike, who was defeated by Atiku during the May 29 primary election, had demanded the resignation of Ayu as the only condition to work for Atiku’s victory come 2023.
However, in a statement by Dino, titled “No Shortcut To Victory”, the campaign spokesperson said Atiku is currently suffering persecution because he chose to be a democrat by not forcing Ayu to resign.
