Liyel Imoke, a former governor of Cross River state, has thrown his weight behind Atiku Abubakar, presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for the 2023 elections.
Imoke noted that Atiku has the capacity to lead Nigeria out of its current socio-economic challenges if elected president in 2023.
“We all understand as Nigerians that we are facing challenges, and they are of such magnitude that the country is haemorrhaging under the current leadership,” Imoke said at the inauguration of the state’s Atiku/Okowa presidential campaign council on Sunday, November 13.
“To get out of the woods, we have to come up with the best, and the best right now is Alhaji Atiku Abubakar and Dr Ifeanyi Okowa.”
“It is important and critical that we get our people to understand the importance of doing the right thing in the coming elections because if we make another mistake, it will be the end for Nigeria,” the former governor added.
While seeking support for the PDP presidential candidate, Imoke maintained that the current internal crisis within the party would be resolved in the coming days.
