The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, claims that their presidential rally on Thursday in Anambra State, which was attended by Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa, and other party leaders, has renewed the public’s support for the party.
Mr. Uloka Chukwubuikem, the deputy director of media and publicity for the Atiku-Okowa presidential campaign in Anambra State, said in a statement in Awka that the PDP presidential campaign council in Anambra State was appreciative of the state’s residents for the significant turnout at the rally’s location, Alex Ekwueme Square.
In the statement titled, “Thank you, Ndi Anambra,” Chukwubuikem said Anambra people had once again demonstrated their love for Atiku and support for the PDP.
He said Atiku’s successful outing in Anambra State has set a benchmark for other South-East states to meet.
Uloka said: “The turnout showed that Anambra is a home for Atiku Abubakar, aside from being our in-law.
“There was no better way to honor him than the massive presence of Anambra people on Thursday.
“Before now, some individuals would never believe that Atiku could attract such a massive crowd as that which graced the rally.
“By the development, it is clear that those people in the state who were doubting the party’s grip in the state are now panicking.
“The Anambra PDP is committed to delivering votes to Atiku and Okowa in 2023.
“The massive attendance by Ndi Anambra on Thursday, December 15, was a clear testimony that the people of the state still have faith in the PDP and are ready to deliver.
“There is no other presidential candidate who can compete with Atiku Abubakar for the presidency, and this is a fact Anambra people have come to acknowledge.”
He added that the acts of the ruling party had led to insecurity and other issues that endanger the country’s very existence and unity. He claimed that the APC leadership had abused and neglected Nigerian youngsters.
“The nepotism against the South East and APC ‘s same faith ticket can never be an option for discerning Nigerians,” he said.
