A former Governor of Niger State, Dr. Babangida Aliyu, has said the Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Atiku Abubakar will win Rivers State and the South-South region in the 2023 election.
During the inauguration of the central planning committee of the PDP Ward 2 Ward 2022 National Conference, Babangida said Rivers State and the entire South South is a historical PDP enclave.
According to the former governor, stakeholders are working hard to ensure the PDP sustains past electoral successes.
Babangida, who was represented by the chairman of the media and publicity of the central planning committee, Dr. Golu Timothy, said the PDP would win Rivers State despite the rift between the party’s presidential candidate, Atiku, and Governor Nyesom Wike.
He disclosed that plans to reconcile both parties are ongoing, stressing that the reconciliation must be productive, realistic, and practical.
Babangida, “I appreciate the W2W for the work you are doing. You are so far the grassroot pillar and support group of the party, and we are very proud of you.
“The goal of this campaign is for Atiku to win the election come February next year. We want Atiku to win, but we have a lot to do to ensure that.
“Do not be conscious of money than what is needed to be done. This nation needs Atiku. Go to your polling units and deliver the message of hope. We should not stay here in Abuja and be blowing grammar.”
