Press Statement

The PDP Presidential Campaign Organization (PPCO) charges Nigerians to 
use the occasion of this year’s Christmas to pray for our nation and 
focus on their collective resolve to vanquish oppressive forces and 
build a peaceful, united and prosperous country, where all citizens will 
live without fear.

The birth of Jesus Christ, the Saviour, signifies the triumph of light 
over darkness and offers Nigerians the new hope and spiritual impetus in 
their shared quest for a brighter future for our nation under a new 

This year’s Christmas celebration is unique, in that it marks the last 
under an oppressive and insensitive administration of President 
Muhammadu Buhari and his dysfunctional All Progressives Congress (APC), 
which relish in inflicting hunger,  suffering and pains on the people.

The PPCO laments the ugly situation in which Nigerians cannot celebrate 
a wholesome Christmas as they use to do prior to the emergence of the 
Buhari presidency in 2015.

PPCO however charges  Nigerians not to despair as the PDP Presidential 
candidate, Atiku Abubakar, whom they have resolved to elect as their new 
President, has already perfected templates to revamp our economy and 
ease suffering in our nation.

The Atiku Abubakar policy document shows his commitment to entrench 
greater participation of our citizens in economic activities in various 
sectors, as against the Buhari exclusionist system, where our collective 
patrimony is only accessed by a cabal in the Presidency and corrupt APC 

In the same vein, the Atiku Abubakar policy document shows practical 
intervention in infrastructure and policy drive, in such a manner that 
guarantees rapid inflow of investments, which will in turn, revamp our 
ailing productive sectors, create jobs, boost the value of the naira and 
increase the purchasing power of Nigerians from this abysmally low level 
under President Buhari, to one of the most competitive in the world.

Moreover, Atiku Abubakar offers a new era of justice, equity, 
inclusiveness and respect for our national diversities as against the 
injustice, nepotism, disdain for the rights of citizens and corrupt body 
language with which the Buhari Presidency fouled our system, brought 
hardship, escalation of violence and bloodletting in our country.

Nigerians should therefore celebrate this year’s Christmas, focusing on 
the brighter future that awaits our nation under Atiku Abubakar as the 
next President and not on the pessimism and promise of more suffering by 
President Buhari.

In this regard, the PPCO urges Nigerians to use the occasion to show 
love and share with compatriots in anticipation of a brighter future.

The PPCO therefore wishes all Nigerians a merry Christmas and happy end 
of the year festivities.
