PDP will take over power from APC in 2023 – Atiku boasts

Former Vice President of Nigeria, Atiku Abubakar, has expressed optimism that the Peoples Democratic Party, (PDP), will take over power from the ruling All Progressives Congress, (APC), come 2023.

Speaking with newsmen shortly after he cast his vote at the Mahmud Ribadu Square, Yola, venue of the PDP State Congress, Atiku maintained that the Peoples Democratic Party State Congress in Adamawa will set the pace for others when it comes to election transparency.

He called on politicians to respect party guidelines, electoral guidelines and the nation’s Constitution in electing party leaders, saying democracy can only triumph in a free and fair environment.

2614 delegates across the 21 local government areas of the State participated in the exercise, even as 39 aspirants had earlier been cleared for various elective posts by the PDP election screening committee headed by Mamu Alhaji Mohammed.

Meanwhile, the Chairman of the Congress Committee and the Governor of Bayelsa State, Douye Diri, commended Governor Ahmadu Fintiri and the PDP stakeholders for organising a hitch-free exercise.
