A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Mr. Osita Okechukwu has challenged the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, presidential candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar for making false claims about the recent presidential poll.

Okechukwu regretted that Atiku glossed over the obvious fact that his desperation and crass opportunism led to PDP’s defeat only to blame Mr. Peter Obi, the candidate of Labour Party.

“Imagine what could have been the result of the 2023 presidential election if it was mainly between APC and PDP?” Okechukwu quipped.

Atiku, while addressing a press conference in Abuja last Friday, stated that Obi’s movement to the Labour Party took PDP’s votes in Southeast and South/south.
