Hauwa Atiku Uwais, the “Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) New Generation” National Chairperson has stressed the need for the party’s stakeholders
from various wards and local government in the South East to deliver the party in the coming 2023 general election.
Hauwa, daughter of Atiku Abubarkar, the PDP Presidential candidate in the coming 2023 Presidential election gave the reminder at the “PDP New Generation South East Youth Symposium held in Umuahia on Friday.
The event was tagged; Reset Nigeria With Atiku/Okowa.”
The event was attended by all “PDP New Generation” coordinators in the South East alongside party faithful from various wards.
Other PDP bigwigs who also attended the event are; Sam Ohuabunwa, former president Nigerian Pharmaceutical Society of Nigeria and 2023 PDP Presidential aspirant. Chief Charles Ogbonnaya, former Commissioner for Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs, Abia State, Rt. Hon. Chikwendu Kalu, former Speaker of Abia State House of Assembly.
Hon. Uko Nkole, House of Representative member representing Arochukwu/Ohafia Federal constituency, Hon Kelechi Onuzuruike lawmaker representing Umuahia North state constituency in the Abia State House of Assembly, Chief Kingsley Megwara, ex-General Manager, Abia State Passenger Integrated Manifest and Safety Scheme (ASPIMS) and Special Adviser Diaspora Affairs under Governor Theodore Orji. Dr. Ugochukwu Williams, Deputy director South East PDP youth presidential campaign council and other PDP party faithful.
Hauwa described the party faithful as the most important component in the event. She added that the PDP team is on ground to demonstrate their capacity and willingness to always stand up for the truth, a better Nigeria and to preach the message of Atiku Abubarkar, the presidential candidate of the PDP.
Irrespective of tribal origination, Hauwa reminded the party faithful on the need to remain committed and united as a nation, while also affirming that the team is in Abia State to Forster Unity.
In her own words; “We are not here because we are Hausa’s or because we are Igbo’s , we are here because we are Nigerians. One thing that matters to us as we move to the February 25, 2023 election is the fact that we want Nigeria to remain intact, not for us, but for our children and for the ones that will come after them and Nigeria.”
Lamenting about the insecurity level in South East and Nigeria at large, Hauwa recalled that in the past, Nigerians lived together in peace and harmony despite tribal divides.
“There was once a Nigeria that worked for everybody, there was once a Nigeria that was not segregated for the Fulani man or the Hausa Man, Yoruba man or the Igbo man. There was only one Nigeria.” Hauwa Atiku said.
Hauwa reminded the party faithful to be alive and alert to their responsibilities and not allow themselves to be deceived by anyone. She also reminded them of Atiku Abubarkar’s stress on the need to restructure the country.
“He (Atiku) is a man that always puts Nigeria first.
“Even when it was the moment when it was best for him to be the president of Nigeria, he still stepped down for the unity and prosperity of this great nation. I don’t need any other leader than a selfless one.” Hauwa Atiku said.
She however pleaded with the party faithful to peacefully deliver their polling units come February, 25, 2023. She also reminded them that the youths of the party are driving to achieve the targeted goal, while also noting the sacrifice of the youths who she said; “they stay in the polling units to ensure a smooth election process.”
