Former Vice President and presidential candidate of the PDP for the 2023 elections Atiku Abubakar has assured Nigerians that he has no other agenda but to serve the people.
Atiku made this known yesterday while welcoming thousands of supporters of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the state that decamped to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
The PDP presidential candidate who was received by a mammoth crowd at the Mahmud Ribadu Square in Yola said he would address the challenges facing Nigeria if elected.
It was the first time he was returning to his hometown after emerging as the flagbearer of the PDP in the presidential primaries held in Abuja.
From the Yola international Airport he proceeded to the Lamido of Adamawa’s Palace for a courtesy call before heading for the mega rally where thousands of APC supporters, including two state lawmakers decided to defect to the PDP.
In his remarks, the national chairman of the PDP Iyorchia Ayu, while receiving the decampees, assured them of level playing ground.
Governor of Adamawa State, Umaru Fintiri, said PDP in Adamawa has delivered on its campaign promises and will do more.
Meanwhile, since the party’s presidential primaries where Atiku emerged as the PDP 2023 Presidential candidate, some members who are not happy with the process and outcome have stayed off party affairs.
Contributing to the internal rancour was Atiku’s choice of Delta State Governor, Ifeanyi Okowa, as running mate over Wike who was reportedly favoured by the committee saddled with that responsibility.
Although efforts have been made by stakeholders in the party for reconciliation, none have been fruitful.
