A chieftain of the People’s Democratic Party, Raymond Dokpesi on Saturday urged delegates and members of the People’s Democratic Party to support the presidential ambition of Atiku Abubakar.
Dokpesi described Atiku as an experienced and matured candidate who is ready to unite the country.
The PDP Chieftain spoke at the party secretariat in Abeokuta while addressing delegates and members of the party.
He said “The qualities Atiku has that others don’t have are experience, maturity, commitment to the unity and stability of this country. Quite a lot.
“A lot of people have been jumping around on the surf for the highest bidder. We have seen people that are coming and throwing around resources in the name of wanting to serve.
“What is written in the Bible is that do not give me fish, but teach me how to catch the fish. So, what Nigerians need, what the youths need, is not money but an environment and opportunity for them to have sustainable livelihood. That is what Atiku has in stock that others do not have.
“What all of us are asking for is an opportunity to serve the country. An opportunity to contribute to the development and upliftment of our people. So, if that is genuinely what it is, then, we can all collaborate to achieve that goal without any rancour or divide.”
