2019 Elections: “Win Or Lose Primary, I’ll Be Loyal To PDP” – Atiku
Former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar, has notified the People Democratic Party (PDP) of his intention to contest the 2019 presidential poll. He also said he would work hard for the party in 2019 whether or not he wins the presidential ticket. The politician also called for free, fair and transparent primaries.
Atiku made the call during his visit to the party’s National Secretariat, Abuja on Friday to formally notify PDP’s National Working Committee (NWC) of his aspiration. He said free and transparent primaries would boost the party’s chances in the presidential election as well as restore its lost glory.
Mr Abubakar commended the party for the conduct of a free and fair primary election which produced its candidate for the July 14 governorship poll in Ekiti. He pledged to work in the interest of the party, whether he won or lost its ticket.
“Whether I become the presidential candidate or not, I want to assure you that I will always discharge my obligations to this party.
“If we can sustain the kind of primary that we had in Ekiti, there is no doubt that this party will be on its way to regaining the pre-eminence in power that we were known for,” Mr Abubakar said.
