The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has come out to say that it would defeat APC in the 2023 presidential election.
The party’s Deputy National Chairman (North), Suleiman Nazif revealed this recently.
According to him, PDP will even go as far as having majority members in both chambers of the National Assembly.
Nazif believes this would happen because of its improved performance in the 2019 general elections and because APC has completely failed the people.
The deputy also hailed governors of Adamawa State, Ahmadu Fintiri; Taraba State, Darius Ishaku; Bauchi State, Bala Mohammed; Benue State, Samuel Ortom; and Sokoto State, Aminu Tambuwal, for their recent victories at the Supreme Court.
He added that PDP will recover Adamawa, Bauchi, Benue, Sokoto, Taraba and Zamfara States as well as the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja very soon, which would be just right since they were robbed of their victories in the recent 2019 general elections.

It won every Presidential election between 1999 and 2011, and was until the 2015 elections, the governing party in the Fourth Republic although in some cases, amid a few controversial electoral circumstances. Currently, PDP controls 14 states out of 36 states in Nigeria.
In 1998 the PDP in its first presidential primary election held in Jos, Plateau State, North Central Nigeria norminated former military leader Olusegun Obasanjo who had just been released from detention as political prisoner as the presidential candidate in the elections of February 1999, with Atiku Abubakar (Governor-Elect of Adamawa State and a former leading member of the Social Democratic Party) as his running mate. They won the presidential election and were inaugurated 29 May, 1999.
The longtime slogan of the People’s Democratic Party has been “Power to the people”. During the party’s National Convention in Port Harcourt, Rivers State on 21 May 2016, David Mark, a former President of the Senate of Nigeria, introduced “Change the change” as the party’s campaign slogan for the 2019 general elections.
In the 2019 elections, former vice president Atiku Abubakar and PDP presidential candidadate and his party rejected the outcome of the elections as INEC was yet to conclude the process and make an official pronouncement.
