PDP must win the next election
Atiku noted that by 2023, the PDP would have remained in opposition for eight years, a status quo that he said must be changed.
“We must win the next election. Would we like to go back? Do we want to remain in opposition? These are the questions before us.
“Your aspiration as Igbo people will materialise and be realised. So, give me victory so that your aspiration will be realised.
“Together, we can achieve these goals if we unite as PDP and fight for power.
“I came with these objectives and if you should be able to give me this opportunity, I believe we will work together to achieve this.”
He shared moments with the southeast PDP delegates in a set of photos on his Twitter page on Sunday.
