Atiku Abubakar, presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), says he felt proud that an incumbent president was voted out by just the use of permanent voter card (PVC).

President Muhammadu Buhari defeated ex-President Goodluck Jonathan who sought reelection in 2015.

In a broadcast on Thursday, Atiku said Nigerians have the opportunity to repeat history during the presidential election rescheduled for February 23.

According to him, if Nigerians do not vote, “you will be accepting that the next four years will be like the last.”

“The reasons we have elections is to allow us to have our voices heard on how we have been governed for the last four years and who will govern us for the next four years,” Atiku said.

“On March 28, 2015, we the people of Nigeria went to our polling units armed only without PVCs and yet we were able to remove an incumbent president from office.

“That made me very proud to be a Nigerian and a democrat. This Saturday, we’ll have the opportunity to do so again.

“My message to you is simple: Please come out to vote as this election is about your future and the future of our great nation.

“On election day, we are all equal, as no single vote is more important than any other but if you do not vote, you will be accepting that the next four years will be like the last. The power to get Nigeria working again is in your permanent voter card. I will be voting with mine on Saturday and I call on you to please join me irrespective of who you will be voting for.”
