National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, has told the presidential flagbearer of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), and former Vice President, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, that he looks forward to squaring up with him as a worthy opponent in the 2023 election.

Tinubu, in a congratulatory message to Atiku, who got 371 votes to defeat 11 other aspirants and win the presidential ticket of PDP, said he welcomed the victory of Atiku.

In a statement signed by Mr. Bayo Onanuga, Director, Media and Communication, Tinubu Campaign Organisation, the politician said Atiku’s victory didn’t come as a surprise to Nigerians, because of his vast experience as a statesman and veteran of many presidential contests from 1993.

“I welcome the victory of Alhaji Atiku Abubakar as the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party in the just concluded primary. I look forward to squaring up with him as a worthy opponent in the coming election.

“I have known the former Vice President as a formidable politician and a patriot, who believes in the unity and progress of our dear country.

“As we move further into the election season, I charge the PDP presidential candidate and all political actors across party lines, that we should make this election season one that is devoid of bitterness, rancour and strife.

“We should make our campaigns peaceful and issue-based. Election season should be a festival of ideas that will uplift our country and improve the living condition of all our people.

“Unfortunately for the PDP, its candidate will be burdened to explain why Nigerians should give it another opportunity, after squandering 16 years at the central government, without much to show.

“Nigerians are yet to forget the national ruin and mismanagement of our country for 16 years by successive PDP administration and this bad memory will dog the campaign of the PDP candidate.

“Nevertheless, I once again congratulate our former Vice President for his victory in his party’s primary,” the former Lagos state governor stated.
