Peoples’ Democratic Party PDP presidential candidate Alhaji Atiku Abubakar has reiterated his commitment to ensuring good governance, quality education, a prosperous economy and a peaceful country if he is elected president in next week’s presidential elections, scheduled for February 25. 2023.

Atiku made this known at the grand finale of the PDP presidential campaign, held today in Yola, Adamawa State, which witnessed millions of PDP supporters in the state.

The PDP presidential candidate thanked all Nigerians for a successful campaign rally and noted that everywhere he went he was accepted by thousands of people, saying it is an indication that Nigerians have accepted the PDP. Atiku charged Adamawa voters not to disappoint Nigerians who accepted his candidacy. He urged them to vote for all the PDP candidates for the State Assembly.

Atiku said: “Today is the last day of our campaign. I want to thank all Nigerians for showing solidarity. I want to assure all Nigerians that you will not be disappointed. we will make sure we have a peaceful country, a thriving economy and a good education and we will return power to the states. I want to reiterate those 5 key points. In Adamawa, it is a golden opportunity for you to choose me.”

“Make sure you vote for me. Don’t be fooled by any propaganda. I want to ask you to vote for all the PDP candidates for the state assembly. The combination of Fintiri and I will be amazing. please return PDP in state and vote for PDP in the Presidency. Please don’t let the rest of the Nigerians down, go tour the local government, units and homes. Let’s record the highest votes in this state.”

Speaking earlier in the campaign, PDP Chairman Senator Iyorcha Ayu also thanked the people of Adamawa for the show of love, asking them to reject the APC which he said led to a bad naira redesign policy.

Ayu noted: “Wherever we have gone there has been great acceptance in all parts of Nigeria.

“I want to thank the people of Adamawa for the show of love towards us and their son, Atiku, the next president of Nigeria.

“This is the second time that the PDP has come to the rescue of Nigeria. For the past 16 years, we have been rebuilding. The PDP is the party of the people and not the party of individuals or groups. APC is an alliance and it is collapsing. It is party policy to redesign the naira and bring hardship to Nigerians. The PDP has come to bring hope.”

“The good thing about Adamawa is that it has more than 100 ethnic groups and they all live in peace. Atiku will unite the country and we will all live in peace, ”he noted.

Vice Presidential candidate Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa said Atiku is the right man to bring hope to the people.

He pointed out that the students are worried about the strikes and the farmers are worried about the insecurity that has affected agricultural products.

He said: “I haven’t seen a rally like this before. We thank you for coming to support his son, Waziri Adamawa.

Thank you for giving us a leader to give to Nigeria, a wonderful man who understands Nigeria.

Our students are worried about education, businessmen are worried about the collapse of their businesses, and farmers are also worried about insecurity. But don’t worry, help is coming, in Atiku. Mobilize en masse and vote for Atiku on February 25.

“Atiku is the only one who can ensure the future of Nigeria. He has been tested and is able to deliver. Other candidates want to use Nigeria to learn,” he said.

For his part, the director general of the Atiku/Okowa campaign and governor of Sokoto state, Alhaji Aminu Tambuwal, greeted the crowd at the demonstration.

He said: “I congratulate all the leaders and members of our party for all the efforts, when the campaign started, we had 18 contestants and the main candidate is Atiku and the main candidate is Atiku/Okowa. We are not ethnic fanatics.

We field candidates who are election ready and serve Nigerians. Other candidates do not have the experiences of Atiku and Okowa.

As a former president, I know the difference and only Atiku/Okowa can move the country forward. The ticket reflects bread Nigeria. We will not vote for APC again.

Tambuwal criticized Labor Party candidate Peter Obi, saying his presidential ambition is dead and buried.

The Governor of Sokoto said: “When Peter Obi was Governor of Anambra, he did not hold any local government elections.

“How could I try to be president when I couldn’t hold local government elections? He is not democrat enough. As far as I’m concerned, Peter Obi’s candidacy is dead on arrival.”
