Ahead of the 2023 general elections, the minority leader of the House of Representatives, Ndudi Elumelu has expressed optimism that Nigerians will vote massively for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Elumelu said the PDP has been able to put its house in order and is ready to reclaim leadership from the All Progressives Congress (APC).
The lawmaker, speaking against the background of the successful conduct of the PDP National Convention said the main opposition party has proved to Nigerians that they are ready and capable of pushing a failed APC out of power.
He added that Nigerians will vote PDP because they have lost hope in the ruling APC and need a party to rescue them and set the country back on the path to greatness.
“Indeed, the unity of purpose and the spirit of sportsmanship witnessed at the event, despite all the challenges, further underscore the democratic credentials of our party as the platform for all Nigerians in the collective determination to rescue our nation from the stranglehold of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and return her to the path of good governance, national cohesion and economic prosperity,” the statement issued on Monday reads.
The PDP national convention further highlights the readiness, capability and willpower of the PDP to regain power in 2023 and end the life of misery, poverty, hunger, bloodletting, unemployment, suppression and humongous corruption that has been the hallmark of the APC failed and anti-people administration.
“The widespread interest by Nigerians and the nationwide applause that trailed the successful conduct of the convention confirm the resolve of our citizens to march with the PDP to take back our country from the suppressive grip of APC, come 2023.
“It is therefore imperative that we remain united and ensure that all interests within the party are carried along in the task ahead. We must continue to foster an all-inclusive platform which provides a level playground for all.
“We must bear in mind that the task before us is an enormous one, given the immensity of the confidence Nigerians repose on our party as their only hope.”
Elumelu said the task of rescuing Nigeria “from the devastation of the APC is paramount to all at this point in our national life”.
