The wife of Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Mrs Jennifer Abubakar, has joined in the campaign for the victory of her husband.
She charged the party and its supporters in Edo State yesterday to dissociate from poverty by rejecting the ruling All Progressive Party (APC) in the February 16 election.
Mrs. Atiku, who spoke at the PDP campaign in Edo Central Senatorial District, said she came with a message of hope for Esan people and Nigerians.
Chairman of the PDP in the state, Dan Orbih, said next month’s general elections was not about the party, but securing a better future for Nigerians and the country’s hard-earned democracy.
He said the country was presently drifting towards dictatorship and condemned the appointment of Amina Zakari as head of INEC’s collation centre.
The party’s candidate in the 2016 gubernatorial election, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu admonished the people to reject APC at the polls, or else the drowning party would kill Nigeria.
Atiku is expected to slug it out with President Muhammadu Buhari the presidential candidate of the ruling party,APC, and other candidates of other political parties in the crucial presidential election in February.
