Atiku Abubakar has sent a message to his fellow contestants after winning the Peoples Democratic Party Presidential primary election.
Recall that Naija News earlier reported that the former VP defeated Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State, Ex-Senate President, Bukola Saraki and others to win the PDP ticket.
He polled a total of 371 votes followed by governor Wike who garnered a total of 237.
In his acceptance speech, the presidential candidate called on the other contenders to join hands with him to take the party to a greater height and ensure the PDP retakes power in next year’s exercise.
He said, “I commended their courage and gallantry. This has indeed deepened our democracy.
“I am ready to cooperate and work with them and give them a sense of belonging. I appreciate their efforts and I look forward to working with them.”
Atiku also pledged to unify the country following his victory in the party’s primary election.
He said: “I pledge to unify this country. That’s why I refer to myself as a unifier.
“The reason I feel that unity is important is that APC has disunited Nigerians completely.
“I will work to restore unity and bring a sense of belonging to all Nigerians.”
He also accused the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) of mismanaging the country but promised to fix the economy and tackle Nigeria’s security challenges.
“The PDP made Nigeria one of the most prosperous countries in Africa. We implemented economic reforms. The APC wiped out all those gains.”
