Atiku Has No Chance Of Winning 2023 Election – Gombe Governor, Yahaya
Muhammad Yahaya, the sitting Governor of Gombe State, has made it known that the flag bearer of the Peoples Democratic Party, Atiku Abubakar, has no chance of winning the Northeast political zone of Nigeria.
The Governor disclosed that the APC’s chances of winning the political zone are very high and it is strong in our resolve to work with the aim of being successful.
“Our chances are very high indeed, and we are strong in our resolve to work towards the success of our great party,” he said.
The Governor made this claim in the city capital of Niger State during his visit to the former Head of State, Abdulsalam Abubakar.
Governor Muhammad Yahaya was asked if he would give his support to the APC’s presidential flag bearer, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, despite knowing that his brother, Atiku, is running for this same office. The Governor replied that there is nothing like a brother or party man for the country as there is one beyond region.
He went on to say that it doesn’t matter if the PDP’s flag bearer is from the same region as him; what matters is that everyone running for the position is his brother, and Nigeria is one, and he wants to keep the country united.
“It doesn’t matter that Atiku is from the same region as me. They are all my brothers and Nigeria is one. We are struggling to maintain it as a united and indivisible country, “he said.
He also explained why he is in Minma, stating that he visited the former Head of State after his hospitalization in London.
“We came to wish him well and a quick recovery. “He is our father, an elder statesman, and a well-respected one at that, so we are here to show him that we care about him,” he stated.
He gave reasons why Gombe has been very peaceful despite security challenges in the region. He said it was because they realised their indifference very early.
