From Teryima Ajijah, Jos

The presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, on Saturday commissioned his campaign secretariat in Jos, the Plateau state capital, preparatory to massive campaigns.

Atiku, who was represented at the event by his running mate, Governor of Delta State, Dr Ifeanyi Okowa, insisted that polling units must be manned by patriotic members of the party during the 2023 election next year.

Atiku’s running mate assured that, should PDP be victorious at the forthcoming polls, they will ensure that basic needs of the citizens are met.

“We intend to secure our people, provide good roads, qualitative education is our concern, APC does not value education, that is why they allowed eight (8) months strike by ASUU,” he stated.

The PDP vice presidential candidate reiterated that they want to ensure that peace returns in Nigeria. “Our administration will creat infrastructure to pave way for development of all sectors,” he added.

Okowa solicited for the support of the electorates to enable PDP win all political offices been contested for. “Atiku can not do it alone, we must all join hands to win the next election, we believe we can work as a united people once again,” he stated.

The vice presidential candidate, however, solicited for a rancor free electioneering. “Do not fight, do not lose hope, mobilize more people to vote for PDP, that is the only hope we have to reverse the wrongs of the APC. The future is in our hands, let us not throw it away,” Okowa pleaded.

The Delta State governor commended the Plateau state presidential campaign committee for a job well done. Okowa urged the Atiku presidential committee to work hard and carry everyone along.

On his part, Plateau State Co-ordinator of the Atiku campaign organization, Amb. Yahaya Kwande, in an address shortly after the commissioning, assured the vice presidential candidate of total support from Plateau State.

Similarly, Senator representing Plateau North Senatorial District, Sen. Istifanus Gyang, in a good will message noted that the choice of Okowa by Abubakar, to deputise him was the right one.

Sen. Gyang said Plateau state is determined to ensuring that PDP returns to power at all level of governance.

“We know that with the leadership of Atiku, as President of Nigeria, our people will be happy again,” he stated.

The PDP gubernatorial candidate of Plateau state, Barr Caleb Mutfwang, alongside his running mate, Josephine Piyo attended the commissioning.

The Atiku campaign council secretariat has 36 offices, a situation room for collection of election results and a board room.
