Atiku Abubakar has received his certificate of return as the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), calling on party members to work together in their mission to rescue Nigeria from the “misrule” of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
The former vice president said this on Wednesday at the headquarters of the PDP in Abuja, stating that the party must begin work without delay.
“And it requires the entire PDP family and other supporters and sympathizers. We must pull everyone together. Nobody should be excluded. I have already visited some of those who contested against me as a way to lead in that effort to unify the party so that we can face our real opponents, defeat them in the elections and begin the process of rescuing and rebuilding this country,” he said according to a statement issued by his media office.
“The callous and dangerous APC misrule over the past seven years is there for everyone to see. However, we should not take their defeat for granted. We must unite and work extremely hard for every single vote in this country. There is so much to do and there is little time to waste. So, let’s get to work
