A chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Chief Sunny Okpako Onuesoke, has said that former vice president, Atiku Abubakar, will emerge as the party’s presidential candidate.
Onuesoke stated this in Yenagoa, Bayelsa State, during Atiku’s visit.
He also appealed to people of Delta State, to come out en masse to welcome the Waziri of Adamawa on Tuesday.
“It will be the best bet for PDP if Atiku wins the presidential ticket of the party because there is no better political tactician or strategist in the PDP than Atiku.
“The man Atiku is a partisan politician who has demonstrated maturity and patience in keeping the country united. He respects the rule of law which will, in turn, bring about fairness and justice to all citizens.
“He believes in God’s will upon his life, that is why he has always accepted any outcome of elections he participated with good faith since the time of late Yar’adua and MKO Abiola.
“He is the highest employer of labour and has the technical know-how to move the economy of Nigeria forward.
“Despite all efforts to tarnish his good image, Atiku remain unindicted as all the allegations against him have been proven to be baseless.
“As a founding member of our great party, PDP, he deserves to lead us and the entire nation to the promise land. A leader with such characteristics is what Nigerian need at this moment.
