Former President of the Senate , Anyim Pius Anyim, has congratulated Atiku Abubakar for emerging as the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential flag-bearer.
Ayim’s congratulatory message was contained in a statement he personally signed on Sunday.
Ayim, who also contested in the presidential primaries appreciated the 2022 PDP Special Convention Committee led by the former president of the senate, Senator David Mark for competently conducting the exercise.
He also said his participation till the end of the contest has made him gratified.
However, the former senate President berated the voting process employed during the election saying, it is obsolete.
Anyim said “I must sincerely commend the PDP 2022 Special Convention Committee for doing a great job.
“I’m proud to have gone through the race to the end.
“However, I am shocked that consideration for voting the PDP presidential candidate was not based on burning national issues and how to resolve them, but still on the old primordial sentiments.
“It appears doubtful if our search for nationhood is yielding any results.
Turning to his diehard supporters, Anyim said, “I deeply appreciate and thank all those who stood by me throughout this race, especially those that voted for me at the primary election.
“I want to assure all of you that we shall continue to stand tall until we birth the Nigeria of our collective dreams.
“Let me also congratulate His Excellency, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar for emerging the PDP flag bearer for the 2023 presidential election”, Anyim said and concluded by wishing Nigerians well.
