The National Youth Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Dayo Israel, has expressed confidence that the party will win in Adamawa State, the country home of PDP’s presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar.
Israel spoke at the party’s secretariat in Yola, Adamawa State, after receiving hundreds of defectors who dumped the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for the APC.
He said the defection signaled the beginning of APC’s ascendancy in the state which would see the party not only secure the majority of votes during the presidential election in February, 2023, but also claim the governorship position presently held by the PDP.
He said, “Adamawa State will be a major chapter in the story of Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s emergence as the next President of Nigeria in 2023.
“It will be said of him that his popularity was so great, and his victory so total, that even the home state of his major contender deemed him better deserving of the nation’s highest office, and rightly so. Because of you, your efforts, and Asiwaju’s many great plans for the people of Adamawa, I know that we will flip this state next year.”
