Abia State Governor, Dr. Okezie Ikpeazu, has congratulated Nigeria’s former Vice President, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, for wining the ticket of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to contest the 2019 presidential election.
In a message signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Enyinnaya Appolos, the Governor applauded other aspirants for their resilience, calm disposition and sportsmanship throughout the contest, describing the outcome as a victory for Nigeria’s democracy and members of PDP.
According to him, “the former Vice President has the capacity to bring about the desired change in the polity with his wealth of experience across different sectors of the nation’s economy, having successfully led Nigeria’s economic team as the Vice President and also as a major player in the private sector. Nigerians are earnestly yearning for leaders who can build bridges, restructure the country and lead the way to prosperity for all Nigerians. I believe Alhaji Abubakar is that leader we need at this time”.
He called on all former aspirants and stakeholders of PDP to join hands with the candidate to ensure the party regains power at the center in 2019 in order to make Nigeria great again.
