Dr. Haroun O. Ajah, who is a chieftain of PDM in the southeast made a call yesterday in a statement asking Atiku former vice president of Nigeria to contest for president in 2019 general elections in Nigeria under PDM. The chieftain also warned the party never to merge with other political parties where it will lose its identity. Read the statement below
“All political parties are however welcome to join and fly the flag of our great party, the PDM.
National peace and stability require national dialogue for consensus building, the restructuring of Nigeria as the commitment to achieve true federalism which can only be carried out a courageous and patriotic person like Alhaji Atiku Ababakar as President of Nigeria.
I implore the national caretaker committee of PDM and the ‘Baba PDM, Ibrahim Gusau in particular to work very hard and ensure that people with respect, courage, commitment and integrity emerge as Leaders of Peoples’ Democratic Movement (PDM) Party in the forthcoming Congresses and National Convention.
I solicit PDM to never merge with other political parties where it will lose its identity; name, party logo and the clarion call from darkness to light. PDM is a great party and a big party that will certainly clear the next general elections. That is why we are solidly and completely behind the candidacy of Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, Turakin Adamawa for the Presidency of Nigeria in 2019 on any Political Party he wishes to contest. However, we invite him to use the platform of PDM for his presidential project but if he refuses to choose PDM as his choice Party to contest in 2019 PDM is still ready to adopt him as sole candidate.”
