The Director General of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Presidential Campaign Council and Senate President, Dr Bukola Saraki has assured that, given the mounting support by Nigerians, the PDP Presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, is coasting to victory in the February 2019 Presidential election.
Saraki stated this while inspecting the Legacy House headquarters of the PDP Presidential Campaign Council in Abuja on Tuesday.
Saraki, who was conducted round various offices at the facility by the party’s National Chairman, Prince Uche Secondus, promised to effectively harness and coordinate all efforts and lead the party and its candidate to victory in the elections.
In a statement by the party’s national publicity secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan in Abuja on Tuesday, the PDP said since the emergence of Atiku, there has been renewed hope among Nigerians of a better future.
The statement read in part: “Since the emergence of Atiku Abubakar as PDP Presidential candidate, there has been renewed hope among Nigerians towards actualizing their collective quest to rescue our nation from the misrule of the incompetent, divisive and deceptive President Muhammadu Buhari-led All Progressives Congress (APC) administration.
“Already, Atiku Abubakar’s candidacy has reunited Nigerians across board and reawakened our collective consciousness towards the restoration of purposeful leadership and national productivity, irrespective of ethnicity, religion and political affiliations.
“The PDP therefore urges Nigerians to continue in mobilizing for the election and be ready for an issue-based campaign that offers solutions to the myriad of security, economic and social problems the Buhari administration has plunged our nation into”.
