The Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party and former Vice President of Nigeria, Atiku Abubakar, says victories of the candidates of the PDP in both Sokoto and Benue states is an acknowledgement from the Nigerian people that it is the only truly national party in Nigeria.
Atiku, while congratulating Governor Aminu Tambuwal on his re-election, assures the good people of Sokoto state that they have made the right decision that will see them continue on the path to peace, progress and prosperity.
He also congratulates Governor Samuel Ortom of Benue state on his re-election, saying “Mr. Ortom is not just a credit to the PDP, he is also an epitome of servant leadership which he urges all and sundry to emulate. With him again at the helm of affairs in Benue, the people of the Breadbasket of the Nation can look forward to times of refreshing and deliverance.”
Atiku shares solidarity with Alhaji Bala Mohammed and Engr. Abba Kabir Yusuf, who have made a great showing in Bauchi and Kano states, respectively. “Victory is within reach. They have shown that they are men of the people and we are convinced that much good will come out of these men of enviable talents and leadership ability,” he adds.
He congratulates the Peoples Democratic Party and all its members on these gains. According to him, PDP is the true bastion of democracy and should be encouraged by these victories.
He says with unity within its midst, it will together continue to extend the boundaries of democracy and shrink the space occupied by tyranny.
