Atiku Abubakar made this call at the Southwest Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP) rally at Osogbo, the capital of Osun State on Saturday.
The former Vice President who is also a presidential aspirant in the 2019 presidential elections urged all PDP stakeholders across the nation to make the required sacrifice and forge a united front to defeat the APC and Muhammadu Buhari government, declaring that all indicators in the polity are showing that the time is ripe for the opposition to rise on behalf of the Nigerian people and take back their country from the voyage of destruction that the ruling All Progressives Congress is taking it to.
The screams of “Atiku! Atiku!” rend the air when the Waziri reminded the people of the south west how in 2003 he worked tirelessly to take the south west back from the then Alliance for Democracy (AD). He promised that he has done it before and he can do it again come 2019 if he is the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party.
According to Atiku Abubakar, the PDP will reposition the country on a true path to peace and prosperity via restructuring and the strengthening of critical national institutions of government, when it returns to power next year
