Deji Adeyanju, a former Head of New Media for the Peoples Democratic Party, on Wednesday said that the Peoples Democratic Party are considering Sokoto State governor, Aminu Tambuwal, and Bauchi governor, Bala Mohammed, as presidential candidates ahead of the 2023 general elections.
In a series of tweets, the former PDP member claimed that the party’s stakeholders are tired of fielding Atiku Abubakar as its presidential candidate.
Referring to Atiku as “the Dubai man with dollars”, Adeyanju said that many members of the PDP caucus are unhappy about the fact that the presidential aspirant left the country for two years after losing the general election in 2019.
He said, “PDP stakeholders want to present Tambuwal or Bala Mohammed both serving governors as presidential candidates and someone from South as VP in 2023.
“They say everybody is tired of the Dubai man with dollars. Why won’t you guys present him now? I want to see you guys in opposition for 16 years.
“Many of them are so pained that the man abandoned their party after the election and relocated to Dubai for two years but is now back to start campaigning for another ticket.
“The only way PDP can get real sense is if they spend 16 years in opposition. APC should present an acceptable candidate in 2023.”
