2023: Afegbua replies Atiku, ‘You lied about PDP ticket’

Former Edo state Commissioner of Information, Prince Kassim Afegbua has taken it upon himself to reply the statement by ex-Vice President, Atiku Abubakar that he will always get the  Presidential ticket of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.

Atiku had while fielding questions from journalists shortly after a meeting with former President, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo on Friday, expressed confidence in his chances of picking his party’s ticket ahead of the 2023 Presidential election.

Responding to Atiku’s comment, Afegbua called on the former Vice President to demonstrate sufficient commitment to the wellbeing of the PDP, rather than be fixated on his personal political objectives all the time.

“I read with dismay the statement credited to former Vice President, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar where he boasted that he would always get the presidential ticket of the Peoples’ Democratic Party, PDP.

“At a time when the former Vice President should be working towards strengthening the structures of the party for more electoral victories, the only thing that bothers him is all about his selfish aspiration. The party did bye-election in Cross River state, we didn’t see Alhaji Atiku Abubakar during the campaigns.

“There was bye-election in Akure, Ondo state, yet, we did not see Alhaji Abubakar there. There was a by-election in Imo state, we didn’t see Alhaji Abubakar at the campaigns. All that matters to him is all about the presidential ticket of the party.”

“Let me remind the former flag bearer of the PDP, that since formation, he has only represented the party once; in the 2019 Presidential contest. So the claim that he had always gotten the ticket to the party is a big lie.”
