Former Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Anyim Pius Anyim has reacted to the outcome of the Peoples Democratic Party presidential Primaries that produced, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar as its candidate for the 2023 elections.
In a statement issued on Sunday, Anyim who polled 14 votes, expressed shock at the modalities that defined the outcome of the primaries.
“However, I am shocked that consideration for voting the PDP presidential candidate was not based on burning national issues and how to resolve them, but still on the old primordial sentiments. It appears doubtful if our search for nationhood is yielding any results.”
He however thanked those who supported him and congratulated Mr Alhaji Abubakar.” I deeply appreciate and thank all those who stood by me throughout this race, especially those that voted for me at the primary election. I want to assure all of you that we shall continue to stand tall until we birth the Nigeria of our collective dreams.
“Let me also congratulate His Excellency, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar for emerging the PDP flag bearer for the 2023 presidential election.”
