Atiku Abubakar and PDP Governors used to illustrate the story
The opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has asked Nigerians for another chance to form government at the federal level, promising to perform better if elected in 2023.
PDP made this assertion on Saturday at its 92nd National Executive Council (NEC) meeting in Abuja. In attendance at the meeting were PDP governors, NEC members, Board of Trustee members, National Assembly caucus, and states Chairmen.
“NEC is confident that the PDP has earned the trust of Nigerians once again and our party will do better when given the opportunity to lead the nation,” the PDPs national publicity secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, said while reading resolutions reached at the meeting.
The PDP has scheduled its elective national convention for October 30 and 31 in Abuja and September 9 to review nominations and adopt zoning of national offices of the party.
The acting national chairman of PDP, Yemi Akinwonmi, said the peace initiatives of the party was yielding results. He appealed to members to resist attempts to sow disunity among them while urging them to work together.
The acting national chairman, decrying the various challenges facing the country, such as terrorism, banditry, kidnapping, unemployment, and many other issues, said Nigerians were “looking up to PDP to salvage this country”.
On his part, former vice president Atiku Abubakar said Nigeria should no longer be in doubt of the PDP’s sense of patriotism and commitment to get Nigeria moving again.
“We are being taken aback by the APC government and we have shown to Nigerians that when we are trusted again we will do even much better than we had done before,” he said.
