Former Vice President Atiku Abubakar, the presidential candidate of the People’s Democratic party (PDP), has appealed to electorate to vote for all the candidates of the party in the upcoming general election.
Mr Abubakar made the call at the grand finale of his presidential campaign rally held in Yola, his ancestral home, on Saturday.
He noted that Nigeria, especially the North-East, is underdeveloped, hence the need for the residents of the subregion to vote for him, vowing rapid socioeconomic development to the area.
“We will provide dividends of democracy throughout the nation,” he promised.
Mr Abubakar assured to record development in all sectors of the economy if voted into power.
He appreciated party stakeholders and urged them to sensitise the grassroots and campaign to the electorate on the imperative of voting him into power.
The flagbearer also solicited the electorate in the state to give him the highest votes, considering the fact that he is their son.
Governor Aminu Tambuwal of Sokoto State, and the Director General of the PDP Presidential Campaign Council (PCC), thanked all stakeholders for their support and cooperation, which made the occassion a huge success.
He said that Mr Abubakar, who defeated 18 candidates at the PDP primaries, is the right candidate to become Nigeria’s next president.
According to him, if elected, Mr Abubakar will reunify the country.
“The difference is clear that Atiku is the right president that can lead the country in a united manner.
“So come out enmasse on Feb. 25 to vote for Atiku and other candidates of the party,” he urged.
Governor Udom Emmanuel of Akwa Ibom, the Chairman of PDP PCC, urged Nigerians not to miss the opportunity of voting Mr Abubakar as the next president.
He said the campaign train had traversed the 36 states and if the party was voted into power it would restructure the country and create employment opportunities, provide quality education, healthcare service delivery and security, among others.
The event attracted hundred thousands of party loyalists, state governors and former ministers, among others.
