As the 2023 election approaches, Atiku Abubakar, the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), on Thursday assured party members and his supporters that he will always give ear to their complaints.
POLITICS NIGERIA reports that Atiku’s comments comes a day after Governor Samuel Ortom of Benue State, criticised him for not treating Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State well.
Ortom said Atiku should have ‘appeased’ Wike after the presidential hopeful lost to him in May.
Now, the party’s presidential flagbearer in respect of the 2023 election, says he will always listen to his people and take “appropriate actions”.
“The Peoples Democratic Party will remain united. Focus on our actions. We are taking action to address the feelings of all party members. The unity in our community is my priority. Our resolve to unify Nigeria starts in our party and moves to the community, then on to society.
“Every Governor, Legislator, and other elected officials produced by our party, and party members and loyalists, are much loved and respected by me. When they speak, I listen. I do not only listen. Appropriate actions have been taken, are being taken, and will continue to be advanced,” Atiku said in a statement this morning.
