By-Election: Put Stamp Of Rejection On APC, Atiku Appeals To Voters

Former Nigerian Vice President and Presidential Candidate of the People's Democratic Party (PDP) in the just concluded 2023 Presidential Election, Alhaji Atiku Abubarka during an International Press Conference in Abuja yesterday.

The Presidential Candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the 2023 General Election, Atiku Abubakar has appealed to voters in the forthcoming by-election to put a stamp of rejection on the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) for having made insecurity and impoverishment a policy of the state in all the affected polling units.

Atiku who tweeted this on his personal X handle on Wednesday, January 31, 2024, specifically, appealed to voters in the Ebonyi South senatorial district to give their unalloyed support to Barrister Silas Onu and, by so doing, vote for the Peoples Democratic Party in the Saturday’s by-election.

According to him, the people of Ebonyi South Senatorial District, the Senate, and indeed Nigeria stand to gain from Silas Onu’s multiple set skills and the vibrancy of his youth.

The Former Vice President said, his appeal goes beyond Ebonyi State and connects with voters in all the 35 constituencies and nine states affected by court-ordered by-elections.

He said, “I do hope that voters in these states, which include Ebonyi, Yobe, Borno, Kaduna, Benue, Ondo, Taraba, Lagos, and Kebbi, shall make a bold statement in the forthcoming election by putting a stamp of rejection on the ruling All Progressives Congress for having made insecurity and impoverishment a policy of the state in all the affected polling units”.

Atiku said, “our country stands at the cusp of a new beginning, and the decisions that voters in the elections on Saturday shall make will determine how ready we are, as a people, to provoke the march to economic and national recovery.

“I would also like to advocate for a peaceful election this Saturday and urge the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to use the opportunity of this by-election to redeem itself of the fraudulent and shambolic elections of 2023.

“I want to specifically urge members of our great party, the Peoples Democratic Party, and, indeed, agents of other political parties participating in the elections to conduct themselves according to the laid down regulations on the day of the election”, he said.
