Datti Express Confidence In Defeating APC, PDP In 2027



Datti Express Confidence In Defeating APC, PDP In 2027

Datti Baba-Ahmed, the vice presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP) in the last general elections, has said that he is confident that the LP will defeat the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) and opposition, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), in any election, News About Nigeria reports.

Speaking during an appearance on Arise TV on Friday, Datti noted that he believes in the ability of his principal, Peter Obi, who was the Labour Party’s flagbearer in the 2023 general elections.

On the 2027 elections and future polls, Datti made it clear that he was not scared of going against the ruling APC and the PDP in future elections.

He mentioned that it was clear from the result of the last election that the Labour Party was ahead of both the APC and PDP as they got the highest number of votes cast in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Abuja.

He said, “APC and PDP did not have 60 percent of the Labour Party’s votes in the FCT that they are ruling. So, I’m never scared because if we are in a democracy, it’s the people’s power that we will use. And we’re using it. Not the armoured tanks of the Nigerian Army that belong to the Nigerian people, and not the barrels of the gun or the teargas that the Nigerian people are afraid of.

“Any day, if there’s an election again, if they come out, we will defeat them. It’s left for them to go and twist the constitution again, change the meaning of English, and declare by 4 a.m.”

Datti further stated that, judging from the last election, the majority of eligible voters have confidence in the ability of Obi and himself to deliver the dividends of democracy and to steer the nation right.
