(By Chris K.Amadi) – The resounding victory of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in the just concluded governorship election in Osun State, South – West Nigeria, has confirmed that the acceptance of the PDP and indeed the party’s presidential flag bearer, Atiku Abubakar cuts across tribal and religious lines.
This observation was made by a former chief of staff and adviser on political matters and strategy, Barr. Emeh Glory Emeh, in a chat with newsmen in Port Harcourt.
According to the consultant in governance and politics, “if PDP can defeat APC in her backyard in Oshogbo, it means that the victory of Atiku in 2023 is a fait accompli”.
Barr. Emeh further observed that the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party is an outstanding politician and presidential material, who is not only experienced but also tested.
Chief Emeh, who is a seasoned politician described the emergence of Alhaji Atiku Abubakar as reward for hard work, faith in himself and in Nigeria’s political system, recalling that the former vice president eminently discharged his duties during the eight years that he served with Chief Olusegun Obasanjo between 1999 and 2007.
The strategist 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 emphasized that a victory for Atiku in the 2023 elections will mark a watershed in the economic and social development of Nigeria.
He also 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 guarantee protection of lives and property, peace, unity and national prosperity.
Responding to a question, 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 Abubakar is not only detribalised but also has social networks across Nigeria, and
will be fair to all if elected as the President of Nigeria in 2023.
