PDP to Oppositions: Atiku is a Symbol of National Unity, Don’t Smear His Image

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) says its Presidential Candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar is a symbol of national unity, cohesion and tolerance who is comfortable and is loved in all parts of the country.

This is contained in a statement by the PDP National Publicity Secretary, Mr Debo Ologunagba, in Abuja on Sunday.

He condemned the attempt to deliberately distort, doctor, misinterpret and take out of context, the comments by Abubakar at a Stakeholders’ meeting in Kaduna State on Sunday in a bid to smear his image as a Pan-Nigerian leader.

“For clarity and avoidance of doubt Abubakar remains a Pan-Nigerian leader.

”He has never and will never set any part of our country against the other as being mischievously hyped.

“To set the record straight, the PDP Presidential Candidate, in responding within the context of the question put to him at the event noted that he had built bridges across the country and that what Nigerians including an average northerner need was a Pan-Nigerian leader and not an ethnic champion,” the party said.

The party therefore calls on all Nigerians to remain focused on the PDP’s mission to rescue, reunite, rebuild and restore our nation on the path of peace, national cohesion and economic prosperity, which the Atiku/Okowa Presidential ticket represents.”
