PDP Vows To Deliver Atiku/Okowa In Anambra, Targets One Million Votes
Prof. Obiora Okonkwo, the Director General of Atiku Abubakar-Ifeanyi Okowa Presidential Campaign Management Committee of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Anambra has said the party would win majority votes in the State.
Obiora said this during the management meeting of the committee where it received reports on the support groups working for the party in the state.
This was contained in a Statement signed by Uloka Chukwubuikem Deputy Director, Media and Publicity PDP Presidential Campaign Committee, in Anambra on Saturday.
Okonkwo said the management committee was confident that the Anambra electorate would give the majority of their votes for PDP as had been the pattern since 1999.
According to him, so far, we have received reports from the deputy director for volunteer and support GROUPS, that over 200 support and volunteer groups with a combined membership of over 500, 000 electorates across the 5,720 polling booths in the state have been harmonised.
“Hon. Onyebuchi Offor, deputy director of the volunteer groups, confirmed that more are still rooting for the Atiku Abubakar presidency in the state, and that mobilisation is ongoing.
“Apart from the already harmonised 200 self-funding groups, there are hosts of other volunteer groups that are rooting for the PDP Presidential candidate.
“We’ve remained a PDP state even when there’s another party at the state level, but the people have continued to vote for a national party with the spread and capacity to win the presidency,” he said.
Okonkwo said the massive grassroots based support groups which cut across the 326 electoral wards in Anambra waa a major factor that would drive the message of unity and hope of the PDP to the people and make them vote for its presidential candidate
He said apart from being nationally accepted, the PDP was parading an array of quality candidates from the presidential to the House of Assembly which is what is important to Nigerians at this time.
“It is obvious that our people have began to give credence to our message, they have taken note of the fact that an Atiku Abubakar presidency is inevitable given the realities on the ground, so Anambra will vote PDP.
“We are targeting not less than one million voters who would troop out en masse on the day of the election, cast their votes for the PDP and defend their votes,” he states.
