Press Release: Letter to the PDP Senators – Segun Showunmi

Dear Distinguished Senators of the People’s Democratic Party. I entreat you to cast your minds back to the turn of this century, when working together with His Excellency; the former Vice President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, your collective efforts and resilient averments were rewarded with an iconic victory for Nigeria’s young democracy. Recall how tirelessly you endeavoured under his leadership; till the culmination on the 16th of May in 2006, of your travails to halt an agenda that sought to truncate our experimental democracy in the shape of a constitutional amendment.

There cannot be any doubts regarding the pivotal role the distinguished ladies and gentlemen of the Senate play as custodians of justness in a democracy; especially one such as ours, which still strives for maturation and as such frequently requires your timely adjudication. Time and again, you have shown that your office stands as a light for the country through its darkest times, and your cooperation so far stands testament to the gravid esteem with which Atiku Abubakar holds you the members of the Senate, and your agenda.

I wish to restate my firm believe and that of every member of the Atiku Abubakar Presidential Campaign Organization, that the office of the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria must be experienced in respecting the Senate and its agenda.

There really is no way to emphasize it enough that the Nigerian people are in dire need of good governance now more than ever; and once again, we are faced with an historic opportunity to offer an honourable service to our people. It is in regard of this, that I once more adjure your distinguished partnership on this embarkment to take back the leadership of our great country Nigeria for her people.

I entreat your delineated support through a free and fair party primary election and unto the Presidential polls in 2019, because together we can achieve more. Nigeria requires the affirmation of your votes for Alhaji Atiku abubakar and those of your esteemed supporters because together, we are again charged to set our country along the right path.

I will bid you to kindly disregard the rumors being spread to discredit your intents, endure the efforts being made to antagonize your rare moments of tranquility, and tolerate the persistent attacks to your credibility; not only shall we not be derailed, but when sanity is restored to Nigeria’s polity, posterity will bear witness to the immense service your coactions have done to our beloved country. It is no secret that His Excellency; Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, has been a victim too; yet now he brings to you a vision to lead this great nation into a more prosperous future and be a beacon you can rely upon to deliver the governance Nigeria needs.

In a few days, the Nigerian people will again be looking up to your esteemed persons to render the most befitting candidate for the opposition that we have become. Bear in mind however, that Atiku Abubakar’s aspiration for the PDP’s candidacy is not merely a shot at the Presidency. “We are not here merely to make a living. We are here in order to enable our nation to live more amply, with a greater vision, and with a finer spirit of hope and achievement. We are here to enrich our people, and we impoverish ourselves if we forget the errand”.

As such, I plead with you to take up the baton and back an Atiku candidacy. Your votes in Port Harcourt and the votes of your friends and colleagues will once again build a more rewarding future for every Nigerian. Atiku Abubakar has secured a place of confidence in the hearts and minds of Nigerians, and published the best laid plans to lead our great country forward; I am certain that the will of the masses will propel our campaign to victory, yet the task ahead simply cannot be accomplished without once again enlisting your unwavering support.

Our strength lies in our unity; and I assure every one of you that with Atiku Abubakar as the next President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, the unity of our peace loving nation will be restored, and the impact the distinguished ladies of gentlemen of the Senate make will continue to hallmark the inevitability of inclusivity in government, if the pride of our great nation must be restored.

    Nigeria will be a much better place with Atiku at the helm. See what is happening with INEC, DSS, Police and the rest. That’s what our country has become. No employment, Hunger everywhere. It’s a pity

    Atiku Abubakar is a democrat, One I strongly believe can wrestle power back to the good people of Nigeria..
    We need a Nigerian as President not a Southerner or Northerner President, who will promotes oneness and Atiku Abubakar the Waziri Adamawa is that man to make that possible..
    Pdp will be doing Nigerians and the party a great favour to consider the former vice President who has shown that he is highly prepared and ready to lead Nigeria.

  16. Nnamdi Bernard September 28, 2018 at 12:44 pm

    I will repeat this here again, I advice his Excellency Atiku Abubakar not to play cool with Apc. Let him learn from Osun and Ekiti

  17. Buchi September 28, 2018 at 2:38 pm

    I dont know if the apes in Apc will allow this country be great again. I hope Atiku will bring is A game to unseat them because its gonna be ware believe me!!
