The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) says its North West Presidential Zonal Rally will hold on Monday in Sokoto, Sokoto State.
The rally according to the party will be used to touch base with leaders in the geopolitical zone on further consultations on the national consensus to ‘rescue’ Nigeria from Muhammadu Buhari Presidency and the All Progressives Congress (APC).
The Director of Media and Publicity, PDP Presidential Campaign Council, Kola Ologbondiyan in a statement on Sunday said the campaign will focus on issues as well as address the concerns, plights, fears and aspirations of Nigerians in the geopolitical zone, in line with the policy document of its Presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar.
“The Northwest bears heavy imprints of neglect by President Buhari’s administration, 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 channelled to the zone.
“The North West zone 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,” the statement read in part.
The PDP also appreciated the 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 emergence as the party’s Presidential candidate.
