The former chairman of Police Service Commission (PSC) Chief Simon Okeke has congratulated the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) for a credible presidential primary which he said has indicated that the party’s dry bone has risen.
Chief Okeke stated this yesterday during an interaction with journalists in his Akatar residence in Amichi, Nnewi South local government area of Anambra state.
He pointed out that the elective convention of the major opposition party in Port-Harcourt that threw up Abubakar Atiku as the PDP presidential candidate was a beauty and shows that Nigerians can get things done well.
“I am very happy with what is, happening in PDP. What happened in PortHarcourt gives one hope that there can be credible election in Nigeria. The national chairman of the party and Gov Wike of Rivers state will take a pride of place
“I congratulate them from all indications, PDP has becom a party to beat. Their dry bone has risen again. They have shown the world that good things can still come out of Nigeria.
The police boss while commenting on the PDP’s presidential candidate said “Atiku is broad minded, a believer of rule of law. If he emerged victorious in the February presidential election then there is hope for Nigeria.
“For five years, he has been on advocacy for restructuring which is the only solution to the multifaceted challenges confronting the nation before many other people caught his vision. It is expected that restructuring the nation would be very easy under his watch.
“I worked with him, he has large heart, very supportive of me as chairman Police Service Commission, when the former president Chief Olusegun Obasanjo created the anti-graft agencies of EFCC and ICPC. I had an input and Atiku has a great input too. His emergence as PDP presidential flag bearer is heart-warming.
Chief Okeke however urged INEC to ensure a level playing ground in the 2019 presidential election noting that any attempt to do otherwise would spell doom for the nation.
