The Edo State Governor, Mr. Godwin Obaseki, on Wednesday, joined his Akwa Ibom, Sokoto and Osun States counterparts, Udom Emmanuel, Alh. Aminu Tambuwal and Sen. Ademola Adeleke respectively, at the Presidential Campaign rally of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Osun State, to canvass votes for the party’s presidential candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar and his running mate, Senator Ifeanyi Okowa.
Others present at the rally held at the Freedom Park in Osogbo include former Senate President, Bukola Saraki and former governors of Bayelsa, Osun, Jigawa and Niger States, Seriake Dickson, Olagunsoye Oyinlola, Sule Lamido and Babangida Aliu respectively; former National Chairman of the PDP, Uche Secondus and the party’s incumbent chairman, Iyorchia Ayu, among others.
Atiku, while addressing party members during a town hall meeting ahead of the campaign rally, said his government, if elected, will address security, revive the economy, unite the nation and improve the education system.
He noted that since the All Progressive Congress (APC) came to power in 2015, Nigerians have been suffering from bad governance, adding that the PDP is contesting the election to restore Nigeria.
Atiku noted, “If we are voted into office, we will stabilize Nigeria, unite its people, ensure security of lives and property and make sure our people benefit from the good governance of the PDP.”
At the rally, Osun State Governor, Ademola Adeleke noted, “If Atiku Abubakar becomes the President of Nigeria in 2023, Nigeria is sure to develop and prosper.
"Atiku will restore the economy, security, agriculture, education and health; he will ensure that the nation is united. Atiku is an experienced man and the only candidate that can rescue Nigeria from its various problems and challenges.”
He added, “Under Atiku as Vice-President, Nigeria was the largest economy in Africa. Atiku will direct Nigeria to the path of development. He will restore the rule of law and due process. Atiku will secure the nation.”
Urging the people of Osun to vote enmasse for PDP in the February 25, 2023 Presidential election, PDP’s Vice-Presidential candidate said, “I urge the people to vote for Atiku Abubakar as he is the only person that can rescue Nigeria from its economic woes.”
