A chieftain of the People Democratic Party (PDP) and its Lagos state vice chairman, Alhaji Ajagbe Adejumo, has said that only the former Vice President Atiku Abubakar, that has full and total commitment to the party’s presidential race.
He, however, called on all those who love the party to come together to show full and total commitment to the party, it’s ideals and what it stands for.
In a statement Adejumo signed yesterday in Abuja, he said apart from the former Vice President, other contenders seeking the presidential ticket “have secretly bought and submitted either a gubernatorial declaration of interest form or a senatorial declaration of interest form in addition to their Presidential declaration form.”
According to him, Atiku Abubakar is about the only candidate who has bought and submitted his PDP Presidential nomination form and no other form.
“He (Atiku) is fully and totally committed to the Peoples Democratic Party and the Presidential race.
“As such, we wish to declare that the former Vice President of Nigeria, Atiku Abubakar is the only candidate that has full and total commitment to the Peoples Democratic Party and the Presidential race.
Upon investigation, it has been discovered that other aspirants may not be fully committed to the Peoples Democratic Party and the Presidential election.
“How do we know? Well, evidence has come to light that others who have declared their intention to contest for the office of the President of Nigeria under the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party have bought and submitted their PDP Presidential nomination forms.
“This is a defeatist mentality. They have their plan B because they are not sure of their plan A.
“Atiku has no plan B, because he is fully and totally committed to his plan A of which he is fully assured of victory. Under the rain and under the sun, Atiku is for the PDP and the Presidency.
“The million Naira question is this: Can the Peoples Democratic Party afford to give its ticket to wavering candidates being that a double minded man is unstable in all his ways.”
