Former Governor of Niger State, Babangida Aliyu has expressed hope that the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar would win the 2023 presidential election.
However, he stated that a lot has to be put in place for the former vice president to take over from President Muhammadu Buhari at the end of his tenure in 2023.
According to Aliyu, Nigeria needs Atiku, calling on Nigerians to vote for the PDP presidential candidate.
He called on supporters of Atiku not to be moved by the crisis around his presidential ambition.
The former governor stated this at the inauguration of the Central Planning Committee (CPC) of the PDP Ward 2, Ward 2022 National Conference, in Abuja, on Tuesday.
Aliyu said, “I appreciate the W2W for the work you are doing. You are so far the grassroots pillar and support group of the party and we are very proud of you.
“The goal of this campaign is for Atiku to win the election come February next year.
“We want Atiku to win, but we have a lot to do to ensure that.
“This nation needs Atiku. Go to your polling units and deliver the message of hope.
“Don’t be bothered by the few irritants here and there. Don’t be distracted but remain focused.”
