2019: 31 Political parties endorse Atiku

Ahead of the February 16, 2019 presidential election, no fewer than 31 political parties have adopted the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), as their consensus candidate.

This was disclosed Thursday, by the National Chairman of the National Unity Party (NUP), Perry Opara, during the official unveiling of an Atiku Support group, United Nigeria for Atiku.

The NUP National Chairman, who doubles as the Coordinator of the group noted that the number of political parties that would endorse the PDP presidential would continue to rise, saying that more political parties will meet next week to announce their endorsement of Atiku.

Also at the occasion was the National Chairman of Rescue Nigeria Party (RNP), Japhet Anyanwu, who also declared his party’s support for Atiku.

Opara, who urged the Coalition of United Political Parties (CUPP) to hasten and adopt Atiku as its Presidential candidate noted that the former Vice President is the only candidate that has the capacity to address the hardship, killings and sufferings that the Nigerian populace is passing through.

He also called on Ndigbo to rally support for former governor of Anambra State and Atiku’s Vice presidential candidate, Peter to win the 2019 elections, noting that Obi has the capacity to transform the Nigerian economy with wealth of experience both as a former governor and successful business man. 

Earlier in his statement, a leader of the Nigeria United for Atiku, Hon. Ameh Ignatius noted that support for the former Vice President would guarantee the return of Nigeria to a winning path, nothing that he symbolizes unity and a developing nation

“The great and well deserved emergence of the former Vice President as the flag bearer of the PDP has charged the political landscape of Nigeria ahead of the 2019 elections. He is undisputable the man with extensive exposure, the unifier, being more open to all parts of the country. Unlike the incumbent, he is a true definition of a democrat and liberal Nigerian nationalist.

“It is difficult to see how any Nigerian political leader with such qualities will not be concerned of the constitutional restructuring of Nigeria,” he noted.
