A chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party in Sokoto State, Alhaji Yusuf Dingyadi, has responded to critics of the presidential candidate of the party, Atiku Abubakar, affirming that he will never compromise the greater wellbeing of Nigerians if elected as the next president come February 25.
Dingyadi, who is the senior special assistant on media and communications to the PDP national chairman and
a member media advisory committee of the Atiku/Okowa Presidential Campaign Council, while speaking with our correspondent added that Atiku is not a religious bigot.
He said, “It is with great amusement to hear some APC propagandists in the country trying to score a cheap publicity by alligning our presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar with lies on religious bigotry or bringing hatred to the public as election approached nearer.
“Whoever knows Atiku Abubakar, will agree that he lived a greater life with the fear of God, commitment to the well being of people by positively participating in activities that positively help and build their future.
“He is an advocate of goodness, peace, development, political unity and cohesion amongst Nigerians. Those using propaganda or lies by mischievously trying to malign his personality cannot be successful and will be doomed before and after the election.
“Throughout his campaign rallies across the nation, Atiku Abubakar has never hid his passion and respect for unity, development, cohesion and peace among Nigerians without religious or ethnic differences.
“His meeting with religious and community leaders before going to venue for the rally is a testimony that, he shares greater hope and solutions with them by informing them his agenda in order to seek their support and give message of hope and greatness across divide.”
Dingyadi further said, “Therefore, Nigerians should not listen to these agents of destruction and liars who are out to destroy unity and political future through propaganda and hatred.
“Our presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar and his running mate, Dr Ifeanyi Okowa are the best responsible leaders who are focused, sound and determined to rebuild and redeem Nigerians against the suffering and poor governance brought by APC-led government policies.
“Voting Atiku Abubakar and Ifeanyi Okowa on 25th February and other PDP candidates is the best and great solution for effective and positive leadership that will usher peace and unity of our people tomorrow.”
He said Atiku’s programmes were the best towards sustaining peaceful co-existence, rule of law, developmental growth and tranquility in the country
“We should not endanger the future of our children generation because of selfishness and ignorance, rather we must stand firm to change the narrative, by supporting People’s Democratic Party presidential candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar and all candidates from top to bottom starting from 25th February to Match elections.”
