Atiku Abubakar, the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, has predicted the downfall of the All Progressives Congress (APC) following the general elections of 2023.
On Thursday in Abuja, Atiku stated this during the inauguration of the PDP Youth Campaign Council.
He stated that APC is not a political party; it is an alliance between the CPC and Tinubu’s party, and we have seen alliances in this country dissolve overnight.
“To be honest PDP is the only political party, APC is not a political party, it is an alliance between the CPC and Tinubu’s party, and we have seen how alliances in this country have disappeared overnight.
“I don’t think APC would survive after this election, we are going to vote them out and by the time we vote them out, they will be dead.”
He described the PDP as Nigeria’s only genuine and longest-lasting political party, noting that members, particularly young people, should be proud of their membership.
Atiku stated, “We are 25 years now, so we have succeeded in laying the foundation for a sustained Democracy in our country.

Speaking directly to council members, the candidate said, “Let me congratulate the members of the PDP Youth Campaign Youth Council for being inaugurated today.
“PDP is making history in the sense that we are the first political party in the country to inaugurate a youth Council.
“But this is not a surprise because we are the oldest political party in the history of Nigeria, since the creation of Nigeria, there has never been a political party as old as PDP. “
He equally said, “fundamentally, the message of Sustained democracy, this democracy some of us fought for it, all our lives.
“Many of us have sacrificed our lives and today you have freedom of speech, movement, and freedom of everything simply because some of us have sacrificed our lives to make sure there is democracy in this country.
“This is the fundamental message we are expecting you to take to all the nooks and crannies of your Constituency.
“The youth council is another step to further enthroned democracy, sustain democracy in our country through our own political parties. Therefore I charge you to mobilize all Nigerians in particular PDP supporters.
“Let me tell you, no matter your background PDP will give you the opportunity to be anything you want to become in life. Because of my five programs, I sat down by myself to write it, I did not give it to any professor or Doctor to write it for me.“
Speaking on his five-point agenda for the rescue Nigeria Project, he said “If you study those points from National Unity to security, to education, you will find out that they seamlessly interconnect with each other.
“Therefore, I want to assure you that no matter your background PDP will help you to achieve your aspirations in this country. Even if Atiku goes another Atiku will come.
“The members here are representative of the youths across the country who are in millions, who are the most voters in this country, you have a responsibility and it is not a small one.
“ Each and every one of you should go back to your state, local Government, wards, and polling units and mobilize the youths. Give them hope that all is not lost.
“APC has dashed the hope of Nigerians in the last seven years and we do not expect that they will be any change in the next five to six months.
“We expect you to go back to your Constituency and take this job seriously, it is about your future, the future of your children, family, and the future of the country.“
Earlier, the Vice Presidential candidate, Ifeanyi Okowa, stated that the selection of council members was a sign that the future of youths is secure under the incoming PDP administration.
According to him, the Nigeria we have witnessed over the past seven years is not the Nigeria we desire. The future is not hopeless if we make the right decision.
Suleiman Kadede, who also spoke at the event, urged his colleagues to disseminate the message to all corners of the nation because the election will be held at the grassroots level. He assured that the youth were prepared to fulfill their mandate.
