The presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar, said next year’s general election in Nigeria, is a referendum on the performance of the All Progressives Congress (APC) led Federal Government and the people will hold the party accountable for their failures.
The PDP Presidential candidate in a statement to his supporters, Sunday described the 2023 general election as a referendum on the performance of the APC.
The statement read in part, “In Benin yesterday, I made my plans clear about the work that lies ahead of us to unite, rescue, and restore Nigeria.
“It’s a plan that encompasses a wide range of the challenges that beset us currently, and the core purpose of my campaign is to market those plans to Nigerians.
“For me and everyone on the PDP side, including you, the next general election is a referendum on the performance of the APC.
“The ruling party will want to run away from their poor performance. In fact, they will wish that we focus on topics that are irrelevant to the next election. But we won’t give them that advantage. We will hold them accountable for their scorecards.
“But even that is not enough. What is more important is that we don’t make the same mistake again.
“That’s why it is incumbent on us to evaluate the plans of each political party and let that be the yardstick of our electoral decisions”.
