Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Atiku Abubakar yesterday said next year’s election is a contest between truth and falsehood.
Telescope.ng reports that Atiku in a Christmas message to his supporters added that All Progressives Congress (APC) has made more Nigerians to live in multi-dimensional poverty.
The APC has made more Nigerians to live in multi-dimensional poverty – that’s the truth. Nigerians must make sure that the APC is never allowed to return to power in 2023. That is a just cause.
He stated: “To defeat the APC and Recover Nigeria will require that we organise ourselves under the banner of the Peoples Democratic Party.
“The election next year is a contest between truth and falsehood. I cannot thank you enough for your choice to stand at the right side.
“I will admonish that you continue to work hard. Our opponents in this election won’t let go easily. When we apply the teachings of Christ to remain steadfast on the right cause, we shall overcome. Nigeria shall overcome!”
Atiku, who noted that he has quite a number of Christian friends, said through his relationships with them over the years he knows the importance that Christianity places on generous giving.
He said: “But this is one Christmas like none other. The times are hard and no thanks to the ruling APC that has run our economy to a malfunction.
“And that is where the message of Christ becomes relevant as always. The despondency of this time, and the uncertainties that come with it, requires us to organise ourselves, establish the truth and advocate for what is right.”
“Merry Christmas and please share my warm regards with every member of your family.”
