Former Edo State Governor and Labour leader, Adams Oshiomhole has said the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar is the ‘weakest’ among the three top candidates in the 2023 presidential election.

The former Edo State governor made this remark on Channels Television’s Popular programme, Politics Today on Wednesday, November 30.

Oshiomhole stated that Atiku has lost the trust of governors within his party because he is a “serial betrayer of agreement.”

He said: “He (Atiku) is the weakest link right now among the three leading candidates.

“PDP governors said we can’t trust him, every agreement we made with him, he broke it; he is a serial betrayer of agreements.”

Oshiomhole further described Atiku as a selfish politician whose ambition is just only about himself and not in the interest of the entire nation.

He said: “In this case, everything is on the surface. First, there are three main candidates, and there are several other candidates, and I believe they all have good intentions.

“It is no secret that you have at least 5 Governors (PDP G-5 governors) including Governors that matters in the south south — when you talk about the stronghold of the PDP, some of the Governors revolting against Atiku are from that part of the country.

“Our candidate, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu went to Gbaramatu Kingdom for the first time, and I’m not sure a PDP candidate has ever gone there because they’ve always taken them for granted. PDP is a house divided against itself.

“The real damage being done to the situation of PDP’s presidential candidate, Atiku is that Governors who have never decamped from PDP, who are PDP indigenes, they’ve spoken to the fact that you can’t trust the PDP candidate Atiku, and they withdrew from his campaign council. Even Mimiko is in that group.

“Atiku went to Ondo state today (Wednesday), high-profiled politician received him in the state. This is not a  secret.

“If five people (G-5 governors) have reasons to question the character of Atiku, that you can’t trust his words, that he can’t even manage his own party, he can’t grant concessions. He is totally insensitive to project Nigeria — the need to keep Nigeria together.

“He could go to a place like Kaduna and speak to them saying don’t vote a Yoruba man, he didn’t say don’t vote for Tinubu, that’s a huge difference. Don’t vote an Igbo man, a man who seeks to govern Nigeria has said this publicly on records, how can you entrust him?

“You can’t manage your household, and you want to preach unity, that’s not possible.

“It is not difficult to see why Atiku can’t win. He can’t. When he had the benefit of joint ticket between Atiku and Obi, he got all the votes in the east, but he couldn’t make it. What miracles does he have? So, his house has broken.”
