The governor of Delta State and Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Vice Presidential candidate, Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa, has declared that the Presidential candidate of the party ahead of the 2023 general elections, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar is truly ready to unify the country if elected.
Okowa who made the declaration at the Atiku South West Assembly in Ibadan on Wednesday said, only the PDP’s presidential candidate has the capacity and respect for Nigerians and is ready to sit down to discuss with all and who the experience to put the people together.
Okowa said: ”Our presidential candidate was in Lagos and he was very well received. And I am sure a lot of us did watched the programme. Only the PDP candidate has a written document which he calls ‘My covenant with Nigerians’ and that document was presented.”
“And that document is not just a document telling us about issues and challenges of a country, but it’s a document that contains ways and means of taken us out of where we are. And it contains ways and means of building a nation. But that building can only start when we have been able to to rescue the nation from the draconian hands of the APC.”
‘The southwest is obviously ready for this election. And I am very confident that working together as one in the southwest, it is going to be possible for all states in the southwest to be reclaimed by the PDP. Our people are working hard and I know for sure, because I interact with lots of you. All I urge is that it is time for for us to bridge the gaps, it’s time for us to speak as one.”
“And as we surely do that and coorperate with each other, we will definitely get other states in the kitty of the PDP. I am aware that there is mass movement in Nigeria and that mass movement is in favour of the PDP.”
“When the presidential candidates are lined up, we know what is good for the Nigeria. In a Nigeria of today, where there is insecurity, in a Nigeria of today where the voices of the people are such that there is anger in it and everybody wants things to fall apart. You can only bring a man that is calm, a man with experience and a man that is ready to to sit on the table and bring everybody to the same table to discuss Nigeria and ensure that we are ready to build back our country to the country of our dream.”
He is the only medication we can prescribe for Nigeria’s illness. So, we present a man who is truly ready to to unify the country. And we know, Atiku stands tall,” he stressed.
