Former Vice President of Nigeria Alhaji Atiku Abubakar said Nigerians are waiting eagerly for the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) to take over power in 2023.

Speaking at the Rivers State Government House, Port Harcourt on July 29, Atiku said his meeting with Governor Nyesom Wike was fruitful.

He explained that party affairs brought him to Port Harcourt, and he had spent the time reconciling touching issues with Governor Wike.

According to him, the issues bordered on how to ensure unity and stability in PDP, noting that it is critical for the party to clinch electoral victory in 2023.

‘Well, I came here to reconcile with the governor on party affairs and how we can ensure that there is unity and stability in the party,’ he said.

‘So, that we can take over government in 2023. I believe that Nigerians can’t wait for 2023 to come so that PDP will return.’

Speaking on the current insecurity challenges that have overwhelmed the capacity of the All Progressives Congress(APC)-led federal government, Atiku described the prevailing situation in the country as bad.

He urged Nigerians to wait for the appropriate time when PDP would unveil its policies on how it wants to address the issue of insecurity across the country.

‘I have never seen it (insecurity) this bad. I am 70 years plus. I have never seen it this bad in terms of security challenges, in terms of economy, in terms of unemployment. This is the worst,’ Atiku stated.

‘Why can’t you give us time. We will come up with our policies. We will present them to Nigerians when the time comes.

‘We have done that before. Under PDP, we recorded the highest economic growth, the best foreign reserves, we reduced unemployment. You know that we can do it?’

The former vice president also acknowledged the tremendous leadership success recorded by Governor Wike, who he described as the topmost governor among his peers in the party.

‘I think he (Wike) is the topmost governor we have in the party. There is no doubt about that in terms of projects, youths and employment, in terms of security. Yes, we have security challenges all over the country.’

He further commended the governor for his outstanding leadership and sterling performance in office.
