The presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the 2023 general elections, former Vice President Atiku Abubakar, in a broadcast, berated the All Progressives Congress (APC) over perceived stimulation of disunity of the country in the past seven years.
Atiku in the broadcast stated: “Our experience in the past seven years under the government of APC has made us doubt our strength as a people.
“In fact, it is safe to say that the greatest thing that the APC government will be remembered for is how it failed to maintain the integrity of our unity, how it has put a knife between the things that hitherto held us together.”
Atiku reiterated his promise reunite and restructure Nigeria.
According to the PDP presidential candidate, “Nigerian people are excellent supporters and team players in a leadership environment that is open, friendly, and merit-based. We have the will and determination not only to promote the pursuit of happiness but also the actual attainment of happiness and the good life in an egalitarian society.
“These hallmarks of our civilization require that we restructure Nigeria in every facet of endeavour, open up the democratic space and mobilise our collective energy towards full-scale economic production.”
Atiku expressed that he is “determined to restore hope, rebuild our broken fabrics, reverse the locust years of bleeding of our commonwealth, and place Nigeria on the world map”.
