Segun Sowunmi, spokesman of the Atiku Campaign Organisation, says the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) will “make it impossible” for the All Progressives Congress (APC) to rig the 2019 elections.
He said Atiku Abubakar, presidential candidate of the PDP, will defeat President Muhammadu Buhari by a “wide margin”.
Sowunmi said this on Monday in Abuja at the launch of a book entitled ‘The man Atiku Abubakar, a square peg in square hole: 100 reasons to vote’.
The spokesman said Abubakar would hire competent people to achieve his plans for the country if elected president.
“They say they will rig in 2019 but I tell them it is only when we don’t beat them (by) a wide margin,” Sowunmi said.
“We will beat them (by) a wide margin and make it impossible for them to rig in 2019.”
Also speaking at the event, Kola Ologbodiyan, spokesman of the PDP, said the party is open for a peace accord with all the contenders.
“We will support peace accord between major political parties and between major contenders. The Peoples Democratic Party is open to that because we are a party of peace,” he said.
“We are a democratic party, who believe in a tenets of democracy, rule of law, justice, freedom, these are what make us a democratic party.
“If there is any group or a group of nations that are canvassing that we should allow peace to reign during the election, surely the PDP will abide by that.”
