Some APC chieftains working for Atiku – Ologbondiyan



Polls postponement: NDFDI vows to remain resolute for Atiku, despite setback

National Publicity Secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Mr. Kola Ologbondiyan yesterday confirmed speculations that some chieftains of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, have been working for the actualization of the presidential ambition of Atiku Abubakar.

Abubakar, who is the presidential candidate of the PDP left behind in APC some his political associates when he defected to the PDP from the ruling party.

Addressing a press conference at the PDP national secretariat, Mr. Ologbondiyan declared that the victory of Atiku at the PDP convention was celebrated across party lines and he has since been receiving solidarity messages across the country.

According to him, the emergence of Atiku Abubakar in preparedness to take over the mantle of leadership from the “incompetent, insensitive and divisive President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration” spurred spontaneous jubilation across our nation irrespective of religious, ethnic, gender and even political affiliations.

“Since then, our party and the Presidential candidate have continued to receive solidarity from hosts of professional bodies, labour unions, major socio-cultural groups, religious bodies, traditional institutions, student groups, international organizations and even top members of the All Progressives Congress, APC, at various levels.

“Today, our Presidential candidate has the highest demography of supporters and volunteer groups, cutting across an overwhelming majority of Nigeria’s voting population in all the nooks and crannies of our country.

“Also, since the emergence of Atiku Abubakar as our Presidential flagbearer, our membership strength has soared with millions of hitherto apolitical Nigerians daily joining our fold alongside others crossing over, in droves, from other political parties, particularly, the APC.

Ologbondiyan emphasized that PDP has regained its place as the party with the widest grassroots penetration and election-ready presence in all the polling units across our nation.

“Nigerians are rallying on the platform of the repositioned PDP to elect a visionary President with the capacity, goodwill and readiness to restore our nation to the path of national cohesion, political stability and economic prosperity; which qualities they have identified in Atiku Abubakar and his running mate, former Governor Peter Obi.”

On the strategy to be adopted by the by PDP for its electioneering campaigns, Ologbondiyan declared that their residential campaign will therefore be issue-based.

“We will focus on issues that have direct bearing on the welfare of Nigerians who have suffered enough hardship, pain and anguish in the last three and half years under an insensitive, incompetent and disconnected administration that cares less about them.

“Our campaign will focus on solutions. The PDP will not allow itself to be dragged down into the marshes of propaganda, smear campaign, lies and deceit of the fading, discredited and rejected APC.

“We will focus on issues of putting our people back to work by creating opportunities for the youths and the over 30 million Nigerians who have lost their means of livelihood because of the harsh economic policies of the Buhari administration.

“The PDP and our Presidential candidate will focus on ensuring security and ending the daily bloodletting in our country. We will focus on how to increase the purchasing power of Nigerians, as well as revamp our economy through strategic intervention in critical sectors, especially, power, food security, road and railway infrastructure, education, energy, health, water provision, and labour issues among others, which have been wrecked by the Buhari administration.

“The PDP will proffer direction to reduce cost of governance and release funds for development purposes; cut harsh tariff and tax regimes, eradicate corruption and engender enabling environment for business to thrive in a manner that will strengthen our naira and restore investor-confidence in our economy.”
