- Describes attacks by the APC as desperate moves of a failed party.
The Kogi central chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and the Natasha Akpoti-Uduaghan Campaign Organization (NAUCO) has said that it cannot be bullied into silence and no attacks on its candidates, especially Barr. Natasha Akpoti-Uduaghan, can stop the defeat of the All Progressives Congress (APC) at the 2023 general election having failed woefully in office.
The campaign organization, in a statement signed by the Head of Media, David Itopa, condemned the unprovoked attack on the PDP candidates across the district, especially, its senatorial flag-bearer, Chief Natasha Akpoti-Uduaghan and the PDP campaign insignias, billboards and other campaign materials.
“It is pathetic that the ruling APC has assumed the position of an opposition party desperately seeking to win elections by any means possible. Such desperation by the APC that has led to attacks and destruction of campaign paraphernalia of the PDP, only points at the fact that the APC is fast losing grounds and headed for electoral doom.
“Our campaign holds that such energies to attack the PDP and its senatorial candidate, Barr. Natasha Akpoti-Uduaghan, if channeled and used properly would have made the APC a darling toast of the majority and transform Kogi central into an el-dorado.
“It is important to note that no amount of intimidation and attacks can ruffle the collective resolve of the people that has suffered untold hardship in the hands of the APC in the last seven (7) years, to vote out APC and vote in PDP, come 2023,” the statement said.
“Our campaign notes that it has become clearer by the day that Barr. Natasha Akpoti-Uduaghan has dislodged and demystified whatever is left of the APC and its crusade of violence in Kogi Central district and she is coasting to victory to ignite the hope of the people in 2023 general elections
“It is on these basis that our campaign organization counsels the APC to channel its energy into preparing its handover notes as the PDP will do a clean sweep in Kogi Central, Kogi State and in all of Nigeria at large in the 2023 general elections.”
