Habu Aminchi Emerges The Presidential Candidate For PDM.
Pastor Habu Aminchi has emerged, the Peoples Democratic Movement (PDM) candidate to contest for presidency in the 2019 general elections
Aminchi was affirmed through a unanimous voice vote of delegates from the 36 states of the country and the FCT in the party’s 2018 elective convention which held in Abuja on Sunday.
Chairman of PDM, Chief Francis Igwebuike said the National Executive Council (NEC) and the National Working Committee (NWC) of the party would continue to uphold the ingenuity of its founding father, late Shehu Musa Yar’Adua.
Igwebuike noted that it was the first time PDM as a party was presenting a presidential candidate, adding that it would mobilise to dislodge the All Progressive Congress (APC) in the 2019 general election.
In his words, “As I am talking to you today, we have governorship candidates after successful primaries in states of the federation; we believe in actualities and the actuality is that PDM has come to stay.
“Nobody will destroy the legacy of Yar’Adua because his disciples will uproot and throw traitors away.
“Most of the people emerging from primary election of different political parties today are bye products of PDM and we are very proud because we are the mother of all political parties in Nigeria,”
Aminchi accepting the honour, pledged to restructure the security architecture of the country, fight insurgency and ensure total defeat of Boko Haram.
He explained that a 10-point agenda which include revitalising the economy, standard education system, security, agriculture and quality healthcare, would be his major focus if elected.
The PDM presidential candidate also promised to restore the dignity of Nigerian workers through enhanced and prompt payment of salaries.
According to Aminchi, the party will pick a female vice president to encourage women’s participation in politics.
“Our slogan is ‘New Nigeria, hope for all’, and I have decided to take the bull by the horn and rise to the challenge to save this country from those whose only desire is to make mockery of it.
“We want a country that will be a paradise for all; a country that will be a pride of Africa and for our unborn children.
“Our children deserve quality life; President Muhammadu Buhari and Atiku Abubakar are human beings like me, but with God, I am going to dislodge them.
“We are going to revive democracy if elected because rigging which has killed democracy in Nigeria will be no more.
“By the grace of God, there will be nothing like rigging in the 2019 general election because God will mount his angels at the polling units; Nigerians will be shocked with what will happen,” Aminchi said.
