PDP: Zoning will not be against Atiku –Support group

Nigerians shouldn’t be in extremely poverty after 61 years – Atiku

The Atiku Abubakar Presidential Project Technical Committee has expressed optimism  that the zoning arrangement of  Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) would not work against the presidential ambition of the former Vice President.

The committee chairman, High Chief Raymond Dokpesi,who  disclosed this while speaking with newsmen shortly after submitting Abubakar’s expression of interest and nomination forms for Presidential Election at the PDP National Secretariat, Abuja, on Monday said Atiku is not against zoning.

“By the special grace of God, when we get to the bridge, we will cross it.

“Am not aware of any internal problems in the PDP. No crisis whatsoever. PDP is one big family; we shall all be together as brothers and sisters.

“Definitely, we have nothing against whatever the party will decide, but the zoning will not be against us,” he said.

Dokpesi said that forms submitted on behalf of Abubakar were duly completed and signed.

Also speaking during the submission of the forms, a former Senator representing Kogi West, Dino Melaiye, described Abubakar as a man with multiple competencies and a unifier.

Melaiye also said that God had revealed to him that Abubakar would be President of Nigeria.

“We are here to submit to you the form of a Nigerian with multiple competences, indoctrinated with the art of civil administration and the rudiments of politics, the only unifier.

“Atiku was the first to pick his form and the first to submit his form,” Melaiye said.
