North-West acceptance of Atiku shows Nigerians have rejected Buhari ― PDP
THE Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Presidential Campaign Council (PCC) has observed that the mammoth crowd of supporters that received PDP’s Presidential Candidate, Atiku Abubakar, at the North-West Presidential zonal rally in Sokoto, Sokoto State, on Monday “is a clear demonstration that Nigerians, across the board, have reached a consensus to vote Atiku in as the next president of our country.”
A statement issued by Kola Ologbondiyan, Director, Media & Publicity PDP Presidential Campaign Council in Abuja expressed the campaign council’s appreciation and commended the courage and show of patriotism by the people of the North-West “in rejecting President Buhari and sectional politics to support Atiku Abubakar, in keeping with the collective quest to unify our nation and revamp our ailing economy.
The statement noted that Atiku’s acceptance by the North-West “establishes the common feeling among Nigerians that he embodies a practical solution to the myriad of problems brought upon our nation by Muhammadu Buhari’s incompetent, divisive, repressive and insensitive administration.”
It added: “The massive reception expresses the confidence of the North-West in Atiku Abubakar’s proven pro-poor stance; his standing affinity with the down-trodden and his demonstrated competence, capacity and political will to revamp our economy, end starvation, sectional acrimony, human rights abuse and humongous corruption, which the Buhari administration has unleashed on our nation in the last three and half years.”
The PDP campaign council, therefore, urged the people of the North-West and Nigerians in general, to continue to stand in unity in their resolution to vote for Atiku as the next President and free our nation from the clutches of his misrule.
