The spokesman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Presidential candidate, Senator Dino Melaye, has said Atiku Abubakar will defeat Asiwaju Bola Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Lagos State.
Melaye stated this on Wednesday while speaking during an interview on Trust TV.
He added that PDP defeated Tinubu’s first cousin in the Osun State governorship election in his “ancestral home.”
“If election is conducted in Lagos today PDP will win the election, Atiku will defeat Tinubu, Atiku was in Lagos two days ago, and he was received everywhere he goes. The people want him and he is going to win the election,” he said.
Speaking on the crisis between Atiku and Governor Nyseom Wike of Rivers State, Melaye said: “There is no crisis in the PDP, the PDP is one strong political party and I am telling you that as I speak with you today there is no shaking and no cause for alarm.
“Campaign starts end of September, we have one month before campaign starts, so we are not too early or too late to constitute a campaign council, I am telling you that in matter of weeks or so, the council will be announced.
“I did not say there are no issues in the PDP, but there are just disagreements and I am telling you that those problems do not have the capacity to derail the success of the PDP.
“The PDP is stronger than any individual, Wike is a PDP man, we respect him, and he is a man of honour. At the convention he made a commitment that he will not leave the PDP and anybody that wins the election that he would support that person and that is what we are holding on to.”
