Atiku/Okowa Presidential Campaign Council Inaugurated In Abia
*Shun Anti-Party Activities, Abia PDP Told
The People’s Democratic Party, PDP, Abia State Chapter has inaugurated the Atiku/Okowa Presidential Campaign Council.
As the long awaited February, 2023 Presidential election crawls in, the South East Coordinator of the Campaign Atiku/Okowa Presidential Campaign Council and Senator representing Abia Central at National Assembly, Theodore Orji, has enjoined members of the party to work assiduously and in unity towards ensuring the party’s victory.
Addressing the members of the Atiku/Okowa Presidential Campaign Council and the Abia State Atiku/Okowa Presidential Campaign structure management committee during the inauguration of the Council, Senator Orji boasted that Abia would remain a PDP state.
T. A. advised members of the party in the State and across the region to shun involvements in anti-party activities and work assiduously and in unity towards the realisation of the party’s 2023 dreams and aspirations.
He said, “We have a presidential candidate, Atiku and our brother, the vice presidential candidate and the sitting governor of Delta State, Ifeanyi Okowa.
“The party brought out our candidate and it is our duty to support him.”
Addressing newsmen, the acting Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, Adolphus Wabara, has urged Ndigbo to sheath their sword, assuring that the party’s presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, will hand over to them after his tenure in 2031.
He said, “There is no way Ndigbo could get the President. (During the the PDP presidential primary) Ndigbo had 95 votes but only 14 was given to an Igbo aspirant, Anyim Pius Anyim.
“If you look at the logic, I get confused that Abia is confused. Let us go to where the president will emerge.
“We should use our brain to follow it. Let us show course when he has promised to hand over to an Igbo man.
“We should not be in a hurry, but he will do it. Let us begin now to look for the black goat now that it is day time.
“Our overall leader is a man of God who will not victimise us”.
Wabara who advised Abians to vote according to their consciences, prided in the party being the oldest amongst all, as he urged all PDP candidates to live by the mantra and show that “Abia is PDP and PDP is Abia”.
He noted that Nigeria is not a one-party state and has 18 presidential candidates, adding, “So, all must vote according to your conscience and according to party.
“PDP is the oldest party in Nigeria. If you look at our antecedents, you will understand what is happening in the party”.
Earlier, the state coordinator of the Campaign Council in Abia, Charles Ogbonna, advised all to be faithful party men, adding, “I have seen the handwriting on the wall that Atiku is going to win.”
