The People’s Democratic Party (PDP) presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, has said the party must be united to fight and win the 2023 general election in order to rescue the country for the present and future generations.
The former vice-president spoke in Abuja at the presentation of books in his honour, marking the party’s presidential campaign and inauguration of the Presidential Campaign Council, (PCC). He noted that the task before the party was to come together and rebuild the nation, adding that it was a task that must be done.
According to the presidential candidate, “To rescue our nation, we must take over the mantle of leadership, from the leadership that has gotten us into this mess. We must therefore be united and come together to fight and win all the elections next year”. “We must rescue this nation for the sake of us, the sake of our children, and for the sake of the generation yet unborn”, he reiterated.
Atiku also noted that the PCC was not just a campaign council, but a general election council, which would ensure sweeping victory for all candidates of the party, come 2023. He further said that as seasoned politicians, their job is to navigate the “muddy waters” of politics and to campaign for and win elections.
Similarly, the vice-presidential candidate of the party, Delta Governor, Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa, said “Our product is a good product, and our candidate has promised a lot. “Thank God, we have a man who already has a document and covenant with Nigerians. I challenge all other presidential candidates to present to Nigerians their documents. It is not enough to appear on television. They must submit to Nigerians what they want to do, so they can be judged by it”, he emphasised.
Three books chronicling the life and some contributions to the national development of the PDP presidential candidate were presented.
Recall that the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) announced Sept. 28 as the official date for the commencement of campaigns by political parties.
