The Forward With Buhari Team said it has become a matter of compulsion to clear the air of the foul commentaries the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) is presently spreading because of its probable receipt of imminent defeat.
In a press release signed by the Secretary, Forward With Buhari, Kayode Ajulo,he said that President Muhammadu Buhari and the All Progressive Congress, APC, stand for impartiality as the conduct of the 2019 general elections is concerned.
The Statement further reads; “That said, to say that all parties’ situation centers as well as ours have the full result of the election as collated from 36 States of the Federation and FCT will amount to a statement of fact, but we as law abiding entity are restrained from making same public due to existing statutes and regulations.
“For the avoidance of doubts, we served below without violating the law, an objective overview of what obtains for the candidates of the Peoples Democratic Party, APC and All Progressive Party, APC, respectively.
“Atiku seemingly won in the whole of South East (Anambra, Enugu, Ebonyi, Abia, Imo) though PMB also managed to garner enough votes across the zone. In the South West (Lagos, Ogun, Oyo, Ekiti, Ondo, Osun) apart from Ondo and Oyo, PMB cleared the rest with a wide margin.
“In the North Central (Benue, Kwara, FCT, Nassarawa, Niger, Kogi, Plateau), North West (Kano, Katsina, Kebbi, Sokoto, Zamfara) and North East (Yobe, Taraba, Gombe, Adamawa, Borno, Bauchi) PMB got substantial votes in all.
“South South ( Rivers, Cross Rivers, Delta, Bayelsa, Edo, Akwa-Ibom) is the home of PDP Atiku apart from Edo where two parties are in strong contention.
“For President Muhammadu Buhari, the election in the South West cleared the whole of South East while that of North Central cleared that of South South.
“North West and North East is the determine factor. These zones is where APC President Buhari finally nailed the PDP Atiku with a wide margin. At the end, APC President Buhari stands a good chance of being declared winner over Atiku of the PDP – a graphic portrayal we all can take to the bank, anyday.
“Besides the said respective party performances, we have it on good authority that, the PDP had, much earlier in confidence conceded defeat with the party already tipping Bukola Saraki – who had lost senatorial elections – for 2023 presidential candidate.
“On the strength of the foregoing facts, we strongly advise the PDP in the interim to refrain from rejecting result that they have (in confidence) acknowledged. In good spirit too, we advise the PDP Presidential Candidate, Atiku Abubakar, GCON to do the needful by picking his phone to congratulate his President, Muhammadu Buhari and close this imbroglio as some elements in his party, APC are warned to desist from forum shopping for injunction to abort the release of the election results in Courts.
“And considering also the truism that every election must produce a winner and loser, we believe that it is more honourable for the PDP to toe the path of peace without compromising our country’s security and integrity, the statement concluded.
