(By Chris K. Amadi) – The presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, has been described as an outstanding politician and presidential material, who is not only experienced but also tested.
This observation was made by Barr. Emeh Glory Emeh, former adviser on political matters and strategy, while speaking with newsmen in Port Harcourt.
The former chief of staff, who described the emergence of Alhaji Atiku Abubakar as reward for hard work, faith in himself and in Nigeria’s political system, recalled how the former vice president eminently discharged his duties during the eight years that he served with Chief Olusegun Obasanjo between 1999 and 2007.
Chief Emeh Glory Emeh, who is a consultant in politics and governance, further explained that both in and out of politics, that the PDP presidential flag bearer has left indelible marks in the sands of time, even as he added that a victory for Atiku in the 2023 elections will mark a watershed in the economic and social development of Nigeria.
The political scientist called on Nigerians to keep hope alive, assuring that the return of the Peoples Democratic Party government at the centre under the leadership of Alhaji Atiku Abubakar will return Nigeria to the winning ways of protection of lives and property, peace, unity and national prosperity.
The Emohua born politician called on the citizens to be mindful of politicians who whip up ethnic and religious sentiments to divide them, even as he stressed that Alhaji Atiku is not only detribalised but also has social networks accross Nigeria, and
will be fair to all if he emerges as the President of Nigeria in 2023.
Responding to a question, Barr. Glory Emeh said:
“We have known and worked with Vice President Atiku Abubakar, Waziri Adamawa since 1991 under the leadership of the great General Shehu Musa Y’Aradua on the platform of the People’s Front, PF, as well as the Social Democratic Party, SDP, before meeting again in PDP in 1999.
“We can therefore speak on the capacity and capability of the former Vice President to provide leadership by instilling new spirit and promoting fresh commitment to the values of efficient performance on the Presidential responsibilities”.
