The National Chairman of the People’s Democratic Party, (PDP), Prince Uche Secondus, has urged the electorates to vote for the party’s candidate, Atiku Abubakar whom he said will rescue the nation from hunger and insecurity.
Secondus said this today in Ilorin at the palace of the emir of Ilorin, Alhaji Ibrahim Sulu-Gambari, as part of activities flagging-off the party’s zonal presidential campaign for North Central. Secondus also denied insinuations that the crowd who came to support the flag-off of the party’s campaign in Sokoto state was not rented, noting that the crowd was a clear indication that people are tired of the current government.
Also speaking, the Nigeria’s Senate President, Dr. Bukola Saraki, thanked the emir for honouring the team and urged him to support the party in prayers always.
In his short address, the PDP presidential candidates, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, promised to maintain his age-long closeness with the Ilorin emirate and further chart way forward for the development of the state and nation at large if elected as president in 2019.
In his remarks, the Emir urged the Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commissions, Professor Mahmud Yakubu, to be an unbiased umpire in the 2019 general elections. He also advised the judiciary to act independently of all arms of government in order to discharge its roles as the last hope of the common man in the country.
