26th May 2022

As we put final touches to our preparations for the presidential primary election of our great party coming up on the 28th and 29th of May, 2022. Let me welcome all our delegates, from every state of the Federation and the FCT, to Abuja for this historic convention. 

In October, 2021 I declared my intention to contest for the office of president of the Federal Republic of Nigeria under the banner of our great party the PDP. I have consulted widely with party leaders, statesmen and opinion leaders across Nigeria. At every stage of my consultations, I have been humbled by the overwhelming encouragement, practical demonstration of support and partnership from eminent Nigerians and PDP party faithful across the nation, for which I remain eternally grateful.

I have presented my vision, which is to build a Nigeria all of us shall be proud of and my pathway to a greater Nigeria. I have harvested the views and opinions of Nigerians during my interactions with a broad spectrum of the society, on the way forward for our country. I am confident that the challenges we are facing today are not beyond our capacity if we can pull together as one people.

Having traversed the country many times. I understand the problems of our people and I have clarity on the solutions the current challenges facing our country demand. I therefore step out to serve Nigeria, in the office of president, out of my conviction that I have been prepared by my experience and exposure, capacity and competence, to provide the leadership needed to reunite, rebuild and reposition Nigeria. I have abiding faith in God and unshakable confidence in the delegates to our national convention that I will emerge the candidate of the PDP for the 2023 presidential election. I welcome you all to Abuja.

Together let us make history, let us make a greater Nigeria a reality.
