The spokesman of the Atiku/Okowa Presidential Campaign Council (PCC) Daniel Bwala on Wednesday said Governor Nyesom Wike’s non-support would only have a little effect on the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP)’s chances of winning the 2023 election.
Bwala, who spoke when he appeared on Channels Television programme, Sunrise Daily on Wednesday, expressed optimism that despite the crisis rocking the party, Atiku Abubarkar, the presidential candidate of the opposition party would win the election.
Expressing confidence in the new Electoral Amendment Act, Bwala said the February presidential election may not be different from the Osun election where some members of the party allegedly worked against PDP.
He said, “Our party is poised to win the election. Wike’s non-participation would affect a little bit of the margin. So, if we are supposed to win with nine million votes or eight million votes, that may reduce to six million votes or something like that.
“But this victory is destined by God and I can tell you that there can be conspiracy and collaboration or anything.
“We know the Electoral Amendment Act and what it brings. We saw it in Osun where some members of our party even worked against the party in that state.”
