Atiku support group upbeat on unity in PDP under Iyorchia Ayu


Amalgamated Atiku Support Group (AASG) has said that it is optimistic that Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) will be more united under the newly inaugurated National Working Committee led by Professor Iyorcha Ayu.

The group said it is also confident that the new PDP leadership produced during the last National Convention of the party, so far adjudged best, will in no small measure fix every challenge at local, state, zonal, region and national levels.

The AASG, according to statement signed by its acting National Director of Media and Publicity, Olusegun ‘Pelumi-Olukoga, and made available to newsmen congratulated the National Chairman of the party, Professor Iyorchia Ayu, a former President of the Senate, Taofeek Arapaja, former Deputy Governor of Oyo state now the Deputy National Chairman (South) as well as Umar Damagum, former Governorship Candidate of Yobe State, as the Deputy National Chairman (North) alongside other people elected into different positions to take over the mantle of leadership of the PDP.

The statement reads, “The group recognises the roles former President of the Senate played during 1993 June 12 Presidential election despite pressure and ugly circumstances as at that time, the undiluted high level of integrity demonstrated in and out of political assignments; for this, we believe his emergence as the party’s helmsman will bring good fortune and total turnaround. As a group, we are standing by him and strongly know, he is the right man PDP needs now, to reposition the party for greatness.”

“Now that, Nigeria’s socioeconomic, and political activities require urgent ‘surgery’ as well as attention to getting the sound wellbeing and hope of Nigerian people restored; we know Professor Iyorchia Ayu’s antecedents and achievements in academics, professional fields, politics and governance will play pivotal role to drive the wheel of progress of the party, to ‘national victory’, at this very crucial time in the history of Nigeria”

AASG calls on the party’s key stakeholders, stalwarts, elderstatemen, and members of the national working committee as well as zonal and states working committees amongst other structure of the party to rally maximum support for a successful outing under Ayu.

“As a country, we cannot achieve any meaningful democratic dividends in governance without ensuring sound and transparent internal party administration. All hands must be on deck to ensuring robust engagements, cooperation and team spirit across all levels within the party.

As a body of like minds, we will continue to stand with PDP of quality leadership, sound values, peace, fairness, integrity and patriotic antecedents.” the group said.
