By Ismail Omipidan
The Deputy President of the Senate, Senator Ike Ekweremadu, has described as a welcome development the return of the former Vice President, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, to the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.
He said it was a welcome development, not only for the party, but the nation’s democracy, declaring that no amount of desperation can stop God’s will in 2019.
In a statement signed by his media aide, a copy of which was available to Daily Sun yesterday, Ekweremadu said the move by Atiku represented a massive “Vote of No Confidence” in the leadership capacity of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, first, by the masses, and now by the cream of its hierarchy and founding members, just as he called on former PDP members still in the APC, to emulate Atiku and return so as to join hands in salvaging the country, come 2019.
“The dumping of the APC by Alhaji Atiku is a welcome development for the PDP, but more importantly, Nigeria’s democracy. Nigeria is in dire need of a rescue mission to rekindle hope in our democracy, restore her on the path of prosperity, and halt the worsening divisiveness that threatens our corporate existence.
“I, therefore, enjoin all former PDP faithful who left for various reasons as well as other progressive-minded Nigerians to emulate Alhaji Atiku, to reunite under the umbrella to salvage the nation because I see a new and better Nigeria coming in 2019.
“I see a country where corruption will be eradicated, a nation that will be a pride to Africa and admiration of the international community, and a nation where no man will be oppressed, intimidated, persecuted or sidelined on account of ethnicity, religion or political persuasion. No amount of desperation will stop the will of God for Nigeria in 2019”, the Deputy President of the senate said.
