2023 Election: Christians Will Be Safer Under My Presidency- Atiku Abubakar, PDP Presidential Candidate

Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, and former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar, has assured Christians that they will be very safe under his watch if elected President come next month.

According to former Vice President, he is a born unifier who believes in the integration of humanity at all levels and would do everything humanly possible to promote unity in diversity. “

Atiku stated this in Jos while gracing the 2023 extra-ordinary General Church Council,GCC of the Evangelical Church Winning All( ECWA) at it’s Headquarters.

Speaking through the former Speaker, Rt Hon Yakubu Dogara, the former VP, said God did not make a

mistake in creating people and allowing them to belong to different tribal,ethnic, and religious backgrounds.

According to him, “a divided Nigeria can not achieve the purpose of God for us as a people. A divided country will only keep us in darkness and chains. All through my lifetime, I have lived and worked harmoniously with people of other faiths and ethnic affiliations with ease because of mutual understanding and respect. My business and political partners comes from different backgrounds with zero expressions of religious or ethnic sentiments. I have never contemplated same faith ticket throughout my political career because it will result in unmitigated disaster for all Nigerians.”

He said no Statesman at the incipient adopts a position that cleary excludes nearly half the Country and still hope to do the work Nigria is in dire need of.no matter how hard and skilful one dresses the same faith ticket, it is an open invitation to anarchy and a clear statement that not everyone will be carried along in government. “

He continued, “as Governor- elect of Adamawa State, in 1999, I gave my full backing, against all odds, to Boni Haruna to take over when I was nominated Vice President. Boni governed Adamawa for 8 interrupted years. Also, in Taraba State, Rev. Jolly Nyame was encouraged to contest the governorship in 1999 with my full backing. We have and are still working together with many Christians across the nation, and the Church should have confidence in my capacity, experience, and ability to deliver credible leadership that unites our people and empower Nigerinas of all creed to live together in peace and harmony.”

Atiku appreciates Christians all over the nation for their prayers and commitment to the nation and assured that he will not relent in cementing a cordial relationship between Christians and Muslims at all times.
