Nigeria at 63: Pull our country back from uncertainty – Atiku tells citizens

The 2023 Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, has charged Nigerians to be prepared to pull the country back from uncertainty to a commonplace of safety.

He gave the charge in his message to mark Nigeria’s 63rd Independence Day anniversary.

He said 63 years ago when Nigeria gained her political independence, it was upon the promise of abundant prosperity and the principle of social justice.

Atiku declared, “As a nation, we have continued to struggle to manifest the dreams of our founding fathers in upholding the promises of shared prosperity and social justice.

“We have encountered great moments when the flag of our dear country flew tall on the global stage through the industry of our sportsmen and women, the prolific distinction of our academia, and the top-notch artistry of Nigerian talents in the global music scene.

“Therefore, for me, the challenge before us all is in ensuring that the political leadership in the country that we call home should be worthy of our pride as a people and not of telling embarrassment.

“Our democracy has triumphed so far due to the fidelity of our conviction that a democracy, when properly nurtured, should bring out the best in us and of us.

“As Nigerians, we are all not unfamiliar with the hardships in the economy, security, and other vital aspects of our society.

“While I enjoin us all to submit our strengths in faith to the Almighty God, we must be prepared to do our best to pull the country back from this point of uncertainty to a place of common safety.”
