2023: NNNP Woos Atiku, Says PDP Skeptical About Victory

NNPP's Presidential Campaign Council (PCC) has advised the PDP presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar to adopt its candidate for the 2023 election.

The PCC’s Coordinator, South-South, Chief Precious Elekimah, gave the advice in a statement he made available to newsmen in Abuja, alleging that some PDP PCC coordinators fear Atiku would not win.

He said the country currently “requires a president without baggages and with the capacity to hit the ground running,” which his party’s candidate represents.

He said his candidate, Senatir Rabiu Musa Kwakwanso is without blemish and that he remains the person with the capacity to address the nation’s many challenges.

“Nigeria needs a leader who will be able to, within a year, balance the exchange rate because a country’s exchange rate is determined by its capacity to produce and sell.

“That is what our candidate will do, along with other measures to address existing challenges.

“To be candid, this country requires an urgent intervention, and that is where our candidate comes in,” he said.

"We had a meeting on Saturday and about 13 coordinators from the PDP PCC attended.

“They expressed their fears that their efforts may be in vain in view of the weighty allegations against their candidate.

“We have assured them that we will accommodate them in the campaign structure and also in government when we win.

“We also told them that even their principal will be adequately taken care of”, he added.

Elekimah, therefore, expressed optimism that Kwakwanso would win the February 25 poll.
