Atiku Wants Nigerians To Vote Massively During Elections

The presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Alh. Atiku Abubakar has called on Nigerians to join him in getting Nigeria working again.

Atiku said this in a live social media broadcast on Thursday where he called on Nigerians to come out en-masse on Saturday to exercise their civic duty.

Naija News reports that Abubakar is hoping to unseat President Muhammadu Buhari, who is seeking a second term in office.

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), has fixed the Presidential election on Saturday, February 23 after it shifted it from February 16 due to logistics challenges.

Here below is a transcript of his speech:

As you know, this Saturday we have our Presidential and National Assembly elections.

The reason we have elections is to allow us to have our voices heard on how we have been governed for the last four years and who will govern us for the next four.

On March 28th, 2015, we – the people of Nigeria – went to our polling units armed only with our PVCs and yet we were able to remove an incumbent President from office.

That made me very proud to be a Nigerian and very proud to be a democrat.

This Saturday we will have the opportunity to do so again.

My message to you is simple: please come out and vote as this election is about your future and the future of our great nation.

On election day we are all equal as no single vote is more important than any other.

But if you do not vote you will be accepting that the next four years will be like the last.

The power to get Nigeria working again is in your Permanent Voter Card.

I will be voting with mine on Saturday and I call on you to please join me, irrespective of who you wish to vote for.

God bless you and God bless the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
