The People’s Democratic Party will be holding the North West Zonal Rally in Sokoto, Sokoto State of Nigeria on Monday December 3, 2018. This is according to a press statement released by the opposition party on Sunday.
The press statement “PDP Holds Presidential Campaign Rally in Sokoto On Monday…To Focus in Issues, Widen Consultations” was released December 2, 2018 and states as follows.
“The People’s Democratic Party (PDP) says its Monday’s North West Presidential Zonal Rally billed for Sokoto, Sokoto State, will focus on issues as well as address the concerns, plights, fears and aspirations of Nigerians in the geo-political zone, in line with the policy document of the Presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar.
“The PDP Presidential campaign will use the rally to touch base with leaders in the geo-political zone on further consultations on the national consensus to rescue our nation from the misrule of the Muhammadu Buhari Presidency and the dysfunctional All Progressive Congress (APC).
“The campaign notes that the North West bears heavy imprints of neglect by the President Buhari’s administration, adding that the President and the APC cannot point to any key development project articulated and completed by it in the last three and half years, despite the huge resources it claims to have channeled to the zone.
“The campaign revealed that the zone is hugely disappointed in President Buhari, who had failed to fulfill any of his 2015 campaign promises even as it is piqued by his 2019 ‘next level’ campaign mantra which shows Mr. President’s lack of remorse for his failures.
“It notes that the North West zone has completely lost confidence in President Buhari and is now rallying with the PDP’s Presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, who has demonstrated an unrivaled competence and political will to reposition the nation and return her to the path of national cohesion and economic prosperity.
“Finally the campaign appreciates the entire people of the North West geo-political zone and Nigerians in general for the unprecedented outpouring of goodwill, prayers and support for Atiku Abubakar, since his popular emergence as the party’s Presidential candidate”.
The statement was signed by Kola Ologbondiyan, Director, Media and Publicity, PDP Presidential Campaign Council.
