The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has congratulated former vice president, Atiku Abubakar who was also the party’s candidate during the 2019 presidential election, on his 75th birthday.
The party in a statement Thursday, signed by its National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, said the PDP was proud of Atiku and described him as an irrepressible democrat, who remains untiring in his efforts and sacrifices towards the unity, stability and development of our dear nation.
The statement said also that -“Atiku Abubakar is a remarkably committed leader, a strong epitome of our national cohesiveness, a statesman to the core and an excellent administrator, who spared nothing, as a leader and businessman, in the pursuit of the overall good of our nation.
“Indeed, the overwhelming support and solidarity he received from Nigerians across the divide in the 2019 general election is a resounding testimony of the confidence the people have in him as a leader.
“Moreover, the outcome of that election did not in any way diminish the trust Nigerians have on him and the PDP. If anything, Nigerians across board firmly, and rightly so, hold that our nation would have not been in dire straits we are today but for the unfortunate aftermath of that election.
“The PDP therefore congratulates Atiku Abubakar on this auspicious occasion and prays God to grant him many more years in good health to His glory and service of humanity,” it concluded.
