The Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar said the stakes in the 2023 elections are high.
In a statement by his media campaign office, made available to newsmen on Sunday, addressed to his volunteers, Atiku described the next year’s election as the most consequential in Nigeria’s democratic journey.
The former Vice President explained that at the Arewa House in Kaduna on Saturday he continued his engagement with critical stakeholders in the future of Nigeria and laid out his rescue plan.
“I also met with the Christian community in Kaduna to reaffirm my commitment to them about stemming the ugly trend of insecurity and the attendant problems of religious intolerance,” Atiku added.
Continuing, the statement read “I am compelled to do all these because I know that the stakes in the upcoming election could not be higher.
“Make no mistakes about it, the next election is the most consequential in our democratic journey. It is a clarion call to duty to rescue and rebuild our fatherland.
“We already know the record of failures that the APC has in its cart. And we are not strangers to the certainty of prosperity that the PDP represents.
Our country needs a leadership that is competent, visionary and experienced. We need a leadership that is pan-Nigerian in outlook, one that will bring people together and not divide them. We need a leadership that will accommodate all tendencies. That is my resume.
“And one more thing, when other candidates talk about narrow self-patronising claims, engage them in return with our policy proposals and the clarity of the alternative that I and Governor Okowa offer”.
