APCs national chairman, Adams Oshiomhole, has said that there is no harmony in the Atiku Abubakar, Peter Obi presidential ticket of the PDP. Oshiomhole while speaking to State House correspondents after a meeting with President Buhari on Friday, November 16, he said the choice of Obi as the running mate was not acceptable to his people in the southeast.
Oshiomhole affirmed that the tension over the PDP ticket would affect the party in the zone. Oshiomhole stated that unlike the PDP, the southwest governors of the APC are proud of the President Buhari/Yemi Osinbajo ticket. He said:
“It is also no secret that the running mate of PDP’s candidate, his home base is disputing his suitability for that position, and this dispute is not being done in the bedrooms. It’s being done in village squares.
And they are giving reasons that where they were hoping for gold, they have been given bronze that will postpone their access to the gold side. READ ALSO: Breaking: Saudi Crown Prince Muhammed Bin Salman ordered Jamal Khassogi’s murder – CIA “You think those guys are going to be fooled?”
