Former vice president Atiku Abubakar has been endorsed by Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) stakeholders in 24 states to contest for the party’s ticket for the 2023 presidential election.
This was disclosed by the leader of the Technical Committee for Atiku, Chief Raymond Dokpesi, during a visit of his committee to Yola, the Adamawa State capital.
He said Adamawa was the 24th state his committee was visiting and that all the 24 states showed overwhelming support for Atiku.
Dokpesi, the founder of DAAR Communications, thanked the people of Adamawa for supporting the former Vice-President and stressed that insecurity, disunity, and unemployment had set the country backwards.
Dokpesi said the Northeast is the only zone that has not produced Nigeria’s President since 1966.
Adamawa State Governor Ahmadu Umaru Fintiri promised that the state would rally round the former Vice-President to enable him realise his presidential ambition, considering the fact that he is a son of the state.
The governor, who was represented by his deputy, Chief Crowther Seth, urged Nigerians to continue to support Atiku to get to the coveted seat.
The state’s PDP Chairman Tahir Shehu expressed the confidence that Atiku would liberate the country from underdevelopment and insecurity.
