The former Vice president, Atiku Abubakar, and Presidential aspirant of People Democratic Party (PDP), has called on Nigerians to stand with him as volunteers to reclaim the country from the challenges currently befalling it.
Atiku in a statement, entitled “Why you need to stand with me at front,” said since the convention of our great party, the PDP last weekend, I have continued to enjoy the support and expression of goodwill by party leaders members and even my co-contestants after the election.
“I am happy to inform you that in my private conversation with these leaders, the People Democratic Party is ready to face the next general election as ONE UNITED force. “As the Presidential flag bearer, my responsibility is not just to ensure that our party returns to power in the Presidential election, its my expectation that I can count on your support to see it through that the PDP wins majority in Federal Legislation Seats, and in all gubernatorial and state’s legislation election. “It is a herculean task, no doubts about it. But I know that with your support, the PDP can return to the winning ways. You may want to ask what are the implications of the PDP winning the general elections?
“Voting for the PDP in the next general election means that you have done your own part in ensuring that we work together as ONE PEOPLE with ONE FUTURE towards building ONE COUNTRY. “The victory of PDP 2023 elections means securing our unity as a country and protecting our security and economy, in addition to enablemen of cohesive national development. That other political party will come to you with their usual cocktail of deception.
”But this is not a time that the country can entertain their empty promises. Their scorecard of failure in the past seven years is the only hard fact that you must continue to show to them whenever they come around. That is the only truth about them: their scorecard of failure! “But we cannot reward their failure with an automatic promotion. They have failed us and we must punish them with our votes. With me in the front together with several other leaders of the People Democratic Party and with your support, we will get Nigeria back on winning ways.”
