A group under the umbrella of the Arewa Coalition for Sustainable Governance (ACSG) has thrown its weight behind the Governor of Akwa Ibom State, Udom Emmanuel, stressing that if the People’s Democratic Party gives him the Presidential Ticket, they will mobilise over fifteen million votes for him.
The group stated this in a statement jointly signed by the Coordinator and Secretary, Alhaji Tukur Musa Abdullahi and Ibrahim Bindawa, ahead of the party’s primary election.
The Coalition for Sustainable governance Group also revealed that among other Presidential aspirants, who have declared their ambition, it had found Governor Emmanuel fit. This visionary leader can address Nigeria’s problems.
They added that Nigerians could no longer continue to endure failed leadership. They stressed that Nigeria being a blessed country with vast land and resources needs proper harnessing to address the problem of a dwindling economy; insecurity, unemployment, food scarcity, industrial growth and development.
The coalition called on the PDP to consider the Akwa Ibom Governor as its 2023 presidential “This is the time to speak out and mobilise voters to elect the right and focused leader with proven track records of performance in the area of governance which could resolve the complex problems confronting the country.”
“We are therefore glad to hear that when the Governor engaged with leaders of the Peoples Democratic Party in Lagos State, it was resounding evidence that he is not only competent but also has vast knowledge about the economy and solutions to a plethora of problems militating against growth over the years.”
“We have always advocated for a President with a great understanding of the economy and detribalised Nigerian, who has demonstrated ability to unite Nigeria and hit the ground immediately elected.
“After careful study of our problems as a group of concerned Nigerians, we equally discovered an urgent need for professionals such as Akwa Ibom Governor to contest the highly exalted seat of President to fix the country.
“This is part of many reasons we are calling on Nigerians across the 36 States of the federation to join our group to mobilise electorate during the forthcoming election to vote Governor Udom Emmanuel as the next President come 2023 .”
