Nigeria former Vice President and the Peoples Democratic Party presidential candidate at the last poll, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, has said PDP is the best friend Nigeria could have.
Atiku made this assertion on Monday, November 16, on his Facebook page. “The Peoples Democratic Party is the best friend Nigeria could have. All geopolitical zones deserve a political party that believes in Nigeria and not a party that believes otherwise.
“The PDP has much to offer all parts of Nigeria, and I urge all Nigerians in all zones to keep faith with a party that has kept faith with Nigeria and will be equitable to all”, he posited.
This didn’t go down well with commentators who aren’t pleased with the state of things in the country. Itota Socrate Solomon Eghosa quickly reacted, “Same thing you said about APC a few years ago. There’s no difference between the PDP and the APC. They are both associations of the same bad fellows. You were instrumental to the formation of both parties.”
Muhammad Gali Dahiru also commented amongst several others. “We masses are not after any political party, credible candidates are what we are after, irrespective of any party they belong to. The reason is, all the vibrant parties are run by the same people with the same ideology and most of them are not in the interest of the masses. Therefore, we are wise enough to choose that which we pray to be better for us!”
