Kola Ologbondiyan, a spokesperson for the Atiku-Okowa Presidential Campaign Council, has warned Nigerians against voting a candidate who will drag Nigeria down to the bottom.
Giving the advise on Wednesday, Ologbondiyan said the Peoples Democratic Party presidential candidate Atiku Abubakar was not a learner on the job, in contrast to other candidates.
He claimed that when Atiku is elected president of Nigeria on May 29, 2023, the anguish and pain that Nigerians are going through under the All Progressives Congress administration will end.
Ologbondiyan gave the reassurance while speaking with a group of PDP youths in Abuja.
He pointed out that the PDP and Atiku were worried about the pains and sufferings the APC has inflicted on Nigerians in the last seven years.
He noted that the crowd that attended the party’s presidential campaign flag-off in Uyo, including other venues, was an indication of the approval of the Atiku/Okowa presidency in the build-up to the 2023 presidential election.

He said, “Among the arrays of presidential candidates, only Atiku Abubakar has the practicable plan on how to end the pains, the hunger, the starvation, the economic woes, the lower purchasing power and the sense of hopelessness which the APC administration has brought upon Nigerians.
“Atiku Abubakar has the experience of office, unlike the learners on parade, having been the Chairman of the National Economic Council. Nigerians can recall that those years, between 1999-2007, were the glorious years of our nation when we achieved unprecedented economic growth.
“In those years that Presidents elected on the platform of the PDP governed, life had meaning as our naira had value against foreign denominations; purchasing power was high; teachers had access to repayable loans and could build comfortable accommodation while those who desired to buy cars could afford them.”
He encouraged Nigerians to abstain from voting for candidates who would drag the nation from the “top to the bottom” of international rankings in seven years.
He urged Nigerians to keep supporting the PDP and its candidates, saying the party has answers to all of the problems plaguing the country.
