‘Let’s get to work’, Atiku tells PDP after receiving Certificate of Return

Former vice president, Atiku Abubakar has received his certificate of return as the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the 2023 general elections.

He received the certificate on Thursday whle urging the party to bear in mind that there was much work to be done before victory.

He spoke as the national chairman of PDP, Dr. Iyorchia Ayu called for a united party, describing the outcome of the special national presidential convention as a family affair where there was no victor and no vanquished.

According to Atiku who spoke on his victory at the convention, “we should not take that or their defeat for granted. We must unite and work extremely hard for every single vote in this country. There is so much to do. And there is very little time to waste. So, let’s get to work.”

Atiku who called for unity in the PDP further said, “Let us all remember that what just happened is a contest within a family to decide how to put our best foot forward. The main contest is the one to win the presidency of our country for our party.

“It will require the entire PDP family and other supporters and sympathisers. We must pull everyone together. Nobody should be excluded; I beg of you”.

The former vice president said he had already visited some of those who contested against him, “as a way to lead in that effort to unify the party so that we can face our real opponents, defeat them in the elections and begin the process of rescuing and rebuilding this country from the calours and dangerous All Progressives Congress (APC) misrule over the past seven years which is there for everyone to see.”

Expressing his gratitude, Atiku said, “I am particularly grateful that you kept your word and gave us contestants fair treatment, despite what might have been a difficult situation.

“Your integrity and even handedness must be commended. I commend our party’s National Executive Committee for putting our party and our country first in its deliberations and decision-making process.

“I thank all those who assisted my campaign in a variety of ways to enable me to crisscross this vast country and make my case for our delegates and other party elders and members.

“To all those who volunteer their time to help with organising the convention, as well as the security personnel and agencies who ensured that the event was successful, I say thank you very much indeed.
