The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) said its presidential candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, is a symbol of national unity, cohesion and tolerance.

This is contained in a statement by the PDP National Publicity Secretary, Mr Debo Ologunagba, in Abuja on Sunday.

Following Atiku’s comment at a stakeholders’ meeting in Kaduna, PDP claimed that their candidate is loved and comfortable in any part of the country.

PDP condemned the attempt to deliberately distort, doctor, misinterpret and take out of context, the comments by Abubakar at the meeting.

“For clarity and avoidance of doubt Abubakar remains a Pan-Nigerian leader.

”He has never and will never set any part of our country against the other as being mischievously hyped.

“To set the record straight, the PDP Presidential Candidate, in responding within the context of the question put to him at the event noted that he had built bridges across the country and that what Nigerians including an average northerner need was a Pan-Nigerian leader and not an ethnic champion,” the party said.

The party, therefore, calls on all Nigerians to remain focused on the PDP’s mission to rescue, reunite, rebuild and restore the nation.

According to the party, their Atiku/Okowa Presidential ticket represents the path of peace, national cohesion and economic prosperity.
