When asked about the ongoing crisis in the PDP, Atiku acknowledged that each party has its internal crisis and PDP is not an exception. However, he assured that they are working towards resolving the differences.
“Each party has its internal crisis, we are still talking with them,” Atiku said. “Most are neither in PDP nor in other parties and definitely that will not make us lose the election because we are okay with the election preparations for now.”
Atiku added that the election is no longer controlled by a governor dictating who to vote for, rather, it is now in the hands of the voters. “Election today is in the hands of the voters,” he said.
