Mazi Sam Ohuabunwa, a presidential aspirant on the platform of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), says the party’s actions or inactions will determine its success or failure in the 2023 presidential election.
Ohuabunwa, a former Chairman, Nigerian Economic Summit Group, said this at a consultative meeting with the National Assembly PDP in Abuja.
He said that a research finding had indicated that Nigerians were eagerly waiting for the return of PDP in 2023.
“My prayer is it doesn’t matter whether I am the one that end up becoming the party’s nominee or the candidate, but Nigerians are looking up to the PDP to do the right thing.
“They are looking at PDP to present their best fits out. They are looking for PDP to present new paradigm.
“There are certain things that the people are exhaust with. So, they want PDP to reinvent itself to show something new and something different from what they have seen in the past,” he said.
Ohuabunwa urged PDP leaders, especially members of the National Assembly to support the party’s leadership for the emergence of a credible and visionary individual who has integrity as the party’s candidate.
The former President of the Pharmaceutical Society of Nigeria (PSN), said that the party needed a man with vision and courage to rewrite Nigeria’s story and change the narrative.
Ohuabunwa narrating various efforts and contributions he had made towards the development of Nigeria said his passion to change the narrative and make Nigeria great has been his driving force.
The Senate Minority Leader, Sen. Enyinnaya Abaribe Abaribe, in his remarks said the PDP was very privileged to have people like Ohuabunwa aspiring to lead Nigeria.
He commended Ohuabunwa’s skills and experience as well as his passion for the development of the country.
“We can see in your discussion how you want Nigeria to be better than it is today.
That is what each of us wants for Nigeria.
“We want to wish you well and tell you to March on. As you go, considered that the National Assembly is part of those that will make your journey easier,” Abaribe said.
Also the Minority Leader, House of Representatives, Mr Ndudi Elumelu, urged all those aspiring to lead Nigeria in 2023 on the platform of PDP to pursue their ambition with peace and unity.
He stressed the need for the party to be united.
“It is what the PDP needs to win in 2023.
“Let us unite ourselves. It is only when we are united that we can have course to take over from the APC.
“So let us advise our supporters not to abuse anybody but to preach peace and bring everybody together.
“Together we can surmount mountains and bring Nigeria back to where it ought to be in 2023,” Elumelu said.(NAN)
