Atiku Has Nothing To Offer In The New Political Reality Of 2023 – Deji Adeyanju

I have nothing against Atiku & like I said during the 2019 election, he’s better than Buhari. In fact, anyone is better than Buhari. Atiku has nothing to offer in the new political reality of 2023 because the game has drastically changed. PDP must present a new face in 2023 to stand any chance because APC will be presenting a YOUNG PERSON & it will be easier to deceive Nigerians again. I tell you sis. If they allow Atiku to emerge, they will be in opposition for 8 more years. He should rest. The nation is tired of their set.
