Mr. Inalegwu Ejembi Adaje, the new National Coordinator of the National Alliance for the Atiku/Okowa Presidential Election 2023, described the current situation in Nigeria as pitiful.
Mr Adaje noted that the country is currently facing an economic regression that only needed a man of former Vice President Atiku Abubakar’s pedigree to save the nation from its sorry state if he wins the 2023 elections.
In a statement on Saturday, the national coordinator said: “This, among other reasons, lies with my group which is made up of formidable grassroots politicians with tentacles in the nooks and crannies of the country who are ready to do anything to send the message. Atiku’s Hope to Nigerians”.
In the same vein, the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) Assistant Secretary for National Publicity Alhaji Ibrahim Abdullahi called on the electorate to rise up and drive out the current occupants of the presidential villa in Abuja through the ballots by 2023.
Abdullah said the country has never been more divided in its history than it has been under the current All Progressive Congress (APC) administration.
According to the statement, the leader of the PDP replaced former Minister of Special and Intergovernmental Affairs, Kabiru Tanimu Turaki in Abuja at the inauguration of the National Alliance for Atiku/okowa.
He lamented the current state of insecurity plaguing the country, describing it as unprecedented, “with roof inflation becoming the order of the day, no country in the world would tolerate the atrocities committed in the country, and Nigerians are worried about the exit from the APC regime”.
The statement added that “messages of goodwill have been received from the National Youth Leader of the PDP, Prince Kadade Suleiman, ably represented by the Director of Youth at the National Secretariat of the PDP.
“Dignitaries who graced the occasion include Hon. Olademeji Fabiyi Director of Support Group and Event, Hon. Sunday, Zakka FCT PDP State Chairman, Engineer Jide Adeniyi, Senator Abdul Ningi, Grand Chief Kingsley Okafor, Chief Duben Onyia among others”.
