The People’s Democratic Party (PDP) has celebrated with Nigerians on the occasion of the New Year while calling on President Muhammadu Buhari to ensure a free, fair, and credible electoral process where Nigerians can freely and peacefully vote.

It also charged the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), other democratic institutions as well as security agencies to note the tide and make all necessary arrangements for very transparent general elections.

In a press statement issued by the PDP and signed by its National Publicity Secretary, Hon. Debo Ologunagba, the opposition party charged Nigerians to be focused and refuse distraction by ‘certain selfish individuals and groups’, as the elections draw near.

It further reiterated its resolve to use the year 2023 as a springboard to rescue the nation from the shackles of misrule.

“The People’s Democratic Party (PDP) celebrates with Nigerians on the occasion of the New Year, urging them to reinforce their resolve for a better country.

“The New Year presents an opportunity to strengthen our bond of unity as a people, resist all divisive voices and pursue a new beginning, away from the woes and  economic hardship. 

“The year 2023 comes to our nation as a light at the end of the dark tunnel as Nigerians march to the polls with renewed vigour to expel the reckless and anti-people APC and elect a people-oriented leadership that truly cares as embodied in the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) and our presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar.

“The year 2023 presents Nigerians the opportunity to achieve their long-standing desire to bring back the good days of the PDP in office so that the citizens can again enjoy economic prosperity, infrastructural development, massive employment, business opportunities, peaceful and harmonious living that characterized the PDP years in government which have eluded our nation in the last seven and half years of the APC.

“It is against this backdrop that the PDP charges Nigerians to jettison all personal, group, sectional, ethnic and religious sentiments; resist all anti-democratic elements and selfish diversionary voices who seek to derail the electoral process and subvert the PDP’s mission to rescue, rebuild and redirect our nation from the misrule of the APC,” the statement read in part.

The PDP wished all Nigerians a peaceful, fulfilling and rewarding 2023.
