The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) women in Kogi State have announced their plan to stage a 1.2 million-man march in support of the PDP’s presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar.
This is just as the party has announced the streamlining of all its presidential support and volunteer groups across the country to ensure a centralised activity under the supervision of the party and the Presidential Campaign Council.
PDP National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, who received a delegation of the presidential women support group, Success Initiative Women for Atiku, at the PDP national secretariat in Abuja yesterday, stated that the party has opened strategic platforms for all support groups to directly participate in the campaign.
Ologbondiyan said that Nigerians are eager to vote for Atiku Abubakar due to his proven national and international connection and capacity for wealth creation, massive employment opportunities for the youths, as well as ability to engender national cohesion and unity among the people.
He stated: “PDP has received unprecedented goodwill and support from millions of Nigerians across all sections of the country, irrespective of ethnicity, religious and political leaning, since the emergence of Atiku Abubakar as our Presidential candidate.”
“Today, Atiku Abubakar has the highest demography of support and volunteer groups across the nooks and crannies of our country. The support we are receiving is monumental.”
He explained that the PDP has already created critical engagement platforms to coordinate all its activities, adding that all its campaign strategies, policy direction, programmes and promise to Nigerians will be streamlined through the party to ensure effectiveness and responsibility.
Earlier, the leader of the group, Evangelist Funso Johnson, congratulated the party for the choice of Atiku as presidential candidate while disclosing the plans already perfected to stage a 1.2
million-man match in support of Atiku in Kogi State.
