The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Presidential Campaign Organization (PPCO) has urged Nigerians to step into 2019 with unwavering optimism, faith and hope of a new era of peace, national cohesion and economic prosperity.
The PPCO , in its new year message, signed by Mr Kola Ologbondiyan, Director, Media and Publicity, PDP Presidential Campaign Organization, congratulated Nigerians for their resilience in surviving the almost four years of President Muhammadu Buhari’s harsh administration.
The Campaign Organization urged them to use the New Year to pray against all negative projections by President Muhammadu Buhari, who had declared more hardship for Nigerians in the coming year.
According to the statement, “Nigerians must therefore avert such negative projections by voting out President Buhari and replacing him with their choice leader, the PDP Presidential candidate, Atiku, who has already articulated a practical blueprint to ease their burden and pain by engendering rapid economic recovery, national cohesion and realistic solutions to our myriad of challenges.
“Our citizens have made immensurable sacrifices to keep the nation going in the face of very harsh policies, lies and fake promises. They now eagerly long for a breathe of fresh air under Atiku as their next President.
“Nigerians should, therefore, be optimistic as their incoming President will usher in a new era of a transparent and responsive government with the template for wealth creation, job opportunities and revitalization of our productive sector through tax cuts and direct empowerment of our hard working entrepreneurs in a manner that increases our national productivity, reduce costs of goods and services, increase exports and shore up the value of our naira.
“Furthermore, Atiku Abubakar, as a new symbol of our national unity, has also perfected the outline for national reconciliation and healing and ending of all divisive tendencies with which the Buhari Presidency fouled our polity with violence, divided our people along primordial fault lines, with its attendant violence and bloodletting in various parts of our nation.
“The PPCO, therefore, urges Nigerians to maintain their resolve to make our nation work again by continuing in rallying behind Atiku Abubakar to rescue our nation from the stranglehold of President Buhari and his vicious cabal”, it said.
