Khadijat Saidu, Birnin Kebbi
A former Vice President and People’s Democratic Party (PDP) presidential aspirant, Atiku Abubakar has urged presidential aspirants to collectively work for the Party’s success after the primaries.
He stated this while addressing Kebbi State PDP delegates ahead of the forthcoming primary elections.
Atiku was in Kebbi to canvas for votes from Kebbi State PDP delegates to actualize his dream of becoming the number one citizen of Nigeria.
He said: “I want to appeal to all of us aspiring to become the presidential flag-bearer of PDP not to see this contest as a do-or-die affair, only one of us will be the winner. And in the event, that a winner emerges, let us collectively work for the success of our great party.
“I am actually convinced that each one of us is suitably qualified to be president of Nigeria. Therefore, we can’t afford to leave APC to continue to put Nigeria in a messy situation.”
Speaking earlier, the former Minister of Special Duties, Alhaji Tanimu Turaki said Atiku was not new to the people of Kebbi, assuring the aspirant of the readiness of all delegates from Kebbi to give him block votes.
According to him, Nigeria needs a generous, brave, active, productive, fearless, and a bridge builder like Atiku to be the president, and not somebody who will spend three years learning the job of a president.
In his remarks, the Kebbi PDP Chairman, Alhaji Usman Bello-Suru thanked Atiku for the visit and assured him of the delegate’s block vote during the primaries.
