A chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Dino Melaye, has said the party’s presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, is at home with all genders, tribes, faiths in Nigerians.
Melaye said Atiku has the balm to heal Nigerians of all their pains if elected president.
He disclosed this in a statement he signed and issued on Monday.
According to the former Kogi West Senator, Nigerians cannot afford to gamble in 2023 by making the wrong choice.
He also described the PDP presidential candidate as consummate political strategist who has been assuring Nigerians of better days ahead.
The statement reads partly: “As a consummate political strategist, an engaging listener, a disarming deployer of a charm offensive and a beacon of hope, Atiku, who bears the flag of PDP, has commenced his campaign, moving round and dispensing the assurance that the years of the locusts are over.
“As a politician who is at home everywhere in Nigeria, Atiku demonstrated his universal home connection by flagging off his Presidential campaign in Uyo on October 10, 2022.
“Nigeria can not afford to gamble this time; by making a wrong choice.”
This is coming when Atiku is being criticized over his remark dubbed as sectional on Saturday.
Speaking in Kaduna, Atiku had said Nigeria needs a pan-Nigerian president and not a Yoruba, Igbo, or Hausa-Fulani leader.
The remark had drawn the irk of some political stakeholders across the country.
