2023: Accept Atiku, Okowa — PDP To Aggrieved Members

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has urged those not happy with the duo of Atiku Abubakar and Governor Ifeanyi Okowa to accept their emergence ahead of the 2023 presidential election.

The advice was given in a statement by PDP Chieftain, Chief Jackson Ude, who made remarks in Lagos on Thursday while telling aggrieved members of the party to sheath their swords and accept the duo as an act of God.

Ude stated that party stakeholders should channel their energy toward saving the country and its citizens.

"The special convention to pick the presidential candidate of the PDP has come and gone. Those who lost out should accept defeat with maturity.

"Atiku Abubakar who defeated others to clinch the presidential ticket of our great party is going to be magnanimous in his victory.

"He’s a true leader who understands how it feels to lose. He’s going to reach out to all. His victory isn’t his alone.

"It’s the collective victory of those who contested and lost, those who wished to contest, those who did not contest and all the members of the party, including Nigerians who are yearning for his leadership.

"I urge Gov. Samuel Ortom to please accept the verdicts at the convention and the choice of Governor Ifeanyi Okowa as VP.

"My beloved leader, former Gov. Ayo Fayose should also please accept all that has happened.

"As Christians, they should accept these outcomes as God’s wish. Only God gives victory. God knows why He handed the ticket to Atiku and Okowa.

"The outcome of the convention and the events leading to the picking of Okowa as a running mate are all God’s wishes. If not, Atiku would not have won the ticket and Okowa wouldn’t have been picked as VP.”

"No doubt Governor Nyesom Wike is a great leader of our party. His huge contributions to the party would surely not be overlooked.

"I am sure he’s top on the list of those who will play huge roles in salvaging Nigeria in Atiku Abubakar’s-led government in 2023", he said.
