The Director-General of Asiwaju Tinubu Presidential Campaign Organisation, Adebayo Shittu, has said that they won’t lose sleep over the threat of Peoples Democratic Party presidential candidate Atiku Abubakar ahead of the 2023 election.
Shittu said that the outcome of the 2023 general election would shock Atiku.
He stated this while reacting to Atiku’s claim that he is determined to defeat the All Progressive Congress presidential candidate in next year’s election.
Atiku stated this during an interview with Arise Television on Friday.
“Of course, we are still friends, but that doesn’t mean we will not have political differences. We have been having political differences since we became friends,” he stated.
When asked if he was determined to defeat Tinubu despite their relationship, he said, “Of course.”
Speaking with PUNCH, Shittu said, “Talk is cheap. Tinubu will be waiting for him. Despite coming from Adamawa, Atiku’s people will prefer to vote for Tinubu.
“When people ask me why I think so, I tell them the evidence is there for all to see. What has Atiku done for his people in Adamawa since he became a politician?
“We in Tinubu’s camp have no fear, and we will lose no sleep over the threat of Atiku. Our number one priority in the North-East is to beat him in his constituency in Adamawa. Our victory in 2023 will just be like the MKO Abiola’s election.”
