How Atiku’s inordinate ambition destroyed PDP — Keyamo 

Following the emergence of Bola Ahmed Tinubu of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) as winner of 2023 presidentil election, spokesman of APC Presidential Campaign Council, Festus Keyamo, has blamed the defeat of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on the outrageous ambition of its candidate, Atiku Abubakar.

Atiku , according to the results announced by Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), scored a total of 6,984,520 votes to come second while Peter Obi of Labour Party polled 6,101,533 votes to come third.

The PDP and LP leaderships had slammed the electoral umpire over its failure to conduct the polls in line with the electoral guidelines.

They also vowed to toe the legal path in order to challenge the outcome of the polls.

Tweeting on Thursday, Keyamo, the minister of state, Labour and employment, said the PDP’s loss in the election was connected to the party’s refusal to adhere to its zoning principle.

“It is now safe to say that the failure of PDP to respect the country’s zoning formula plus Atiku’s inordinate ambition, destroyed PDP,” Keyamo wrote.

It would be recalled that the opposition PDP had gone into the presidential election seemingly divided as a result of the crisis bordering on rotation of presidential ticket. (Ripples Nigeria)
