The National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Iyorchia Ayu, on Thursday in Kano State, during the party’s presidential campaign rally goofed when he said “PDP has brought us shame.”
“They are full of lies. They have nothing to offer the ‘talakas’ (poor) in Nigeria. We will come back. Our president, Atiku Abubakar, who you will vote to power in the next few weeks, we will rally around him. We will discuss our policies, and we will see where it is affecting you. We will make sure we implement a successful policy that will bring back Nigeria to its glory,” Ayu said while urging Nigerians to reject the ruling All Progressives Congress.

We are supposed to be the leaders in Africa and everywhere in the world we should be respected. PDP has brought us shame and we will not continue to retain them in power… APC.
“Vote for PDP from top to bottom, from bottom to top; Atiku Abubakar as president.”
On December 13, 2022, PDP presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar suffered a similar gaffe when he asked his supporters to vote for AP before quickly saying PDP.
Speaking at the party’s campaign rally held at the Rwang Pam Township Stadium in Jos, the Plateau capital, Atiku had said, “For God’s sake and for the value of this place, ensure that you vote for AP, I mean PDP this time around.”
Speaking in January 2023 during a presidential campaign rally in Lokoja, Kogi State capital, the former Vice President also asked his supporters to vote for the ruling APC in the forthcoming general elections.
Addressing his supporters during the campaign, Atiku told Nigerians that if they want the next government to benefit them, they should vote for APC before he quickly corrected himself and said PDP.
