The Presidential Campaign Council of the People’s Democratic Party, has warned the G-5 Governors against attacking the candidate of the party, Atiku Abubakar.
One of the Council’s spokesperson Dino Melaye in a statement said attacking Atiku will cost the governors their political future.
According to him, no form of blackmail, hate or outrageous envy will stop Atiku from emerging Nigeria’s president, adding that Atiku will be president because the people have decided.
He also said Atiku’s only offence is because he won a presidential primary transparently and fairly.
“No blackmail, hate, or outrageous envy will stop Atiku. I pray it is not true (G-5 governors’ imminent endorsement of their preferred candidate). Attacking Atiku will cost them their political future,” he said.
“You don’t fight a man, who has done nothing to provoke you. Atiku’s only offence is that he won a presidential primary transparently and openly. No man should play God. It is too late to stop Atiku. They should have a re-think while they can. Atiku will be president because the people have decided,” he added.
This comes hours after the G-5 Governors left the country to decide on the presidential candidate to support in next year’s election.
