Why Atiku has won the election already – Gbenga Daniel
Chief Gbenga Daniel, has said that the PDP and its standard flag bearer, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, have won the election already even though it is yet to be conducted, Daily Post reports.
He spoke when he addressed journalists after a campaign council tour of Ogun East senatorial district for Atiku on Sunday.
“You can see that the unemployment rate at the national level has plummeted, the security today is nothing to write home about. You can also see that the economy has virtually collapsed.
“So, when you look at all these indices both at the state and national level, you will find out that unfortunately the expectations of the people are not being met.
“The coming election is between two people; the people who are there known as the APC and the main opposition party which is PDP. What Nigerians were saying is that they believe they made a mistake in 2015 and they want to correct the mistake.
“We, therefore, decided to come out to interact with our people at all levels, especially the grassroots, to remind them the kind of administration we ran when we were there and to tell them this is an opportunity which is coming up on Saturday for then to return PDP to power.
“I think without any doubt that this election is won. I have been all round the country and I have no doubt that PDP has won this election. The challenge we have is to ensure that rigging is prevented and I am very sure Nigerians will not allow that to happen.
“You can clearly see that our people have become fed up with the current administration at all levels. In Ogun State in particular, if you see what is going on in the last eight years, you can see that the large section of the state keeps crying marginalisation, you can see that development that we have witnessed has not be even, you can see that the number of the priorities that have been set are not the immediate needs of the people.
“You can see to a very large extent that there are had been what we can call the squandering of the resources of the people with projects that do not fall within the priority of the people,” he said.
