PNC leader, Abdul Raheem Abdulla (Adhurey) states that there isn’t a leader, either in the government or opposition, who can save Maldives, except for former President Abdulla Yameen Abdul Gayoom.

Speaking in an event at the PPM headquarters in Male’ on Tuesday evening, Adhurey said that only Yameen can save Maldives from the “hole” it is currently in and bring the development, prosperity and independence the Maldivian people want.

He said that no other Maldivian leader has enough courage or vision, and that it was the members of PPM and PNC who best knew the extent of Yameen’s capabilities.

“You will hear a lot of talk designed to divide us. I want to say, don’t believe a single word of such talk. PPM and PNC are out to free President Yameen for the sake of this nation,” he said.

Adhurey said that Yameen wasn’t just important to Maldives today, but had a vision for the future of the nation since long back.

He also spoke of the Supreme Court’s decision to deny bail to Yameen, who has appealed his five-year prison sentence for money laundering with the court.

Adhurey said that a lot of people had hoped Yameen would be released on bail.

“Bail isn’t important to President Yameen right now. The time for bail has passed. Granting bail after two years of abuse isn’t important,” he said.

Adhurey said that he is confident Almighty Allah will grant victory to Yameen.
