The Chairman of the Edo State Chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Dr. Tony Aziegbemi has inagurated the Edo State Chapter of Atiku/Okowa Presidential Campaign Council with a charge to the members to work assidiously to ensure victory for the party in the forthcoming 2023 presidential election.

Aziegbemi who made the call while inaugurating the 530 members of the state campaign council, Friday, in Benin City the Edo State capital, made a passionate appeal to the members of the campaign council to endeavor to mobilize other members and supporters for the PDP presidential rally holding at the Samuel Ogbemudia Stadium on Saturday, 22nd October.

He further employ members to take full control at each rally by ensuring orderliness at the venue.

In his remarks, the Chairman of the Campaign Council, Governor Godwin Obaseki said the PDP presidential candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar is coming to salvage Nigeria, insisting that only politicians of the PDP extraction have what it takes to rescue Nigeria from it’s present economic crisis.

According to the Governor, “Each time I’ve had the privilege to talk to our presidential candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, he always referred us back to what happened in 1999. He said don’t forget when we took over in 1999 Nigeria was as divided as it is today.

“The military had been there for a long time, the democractic culture had ceased.

“He said the same strategy we used then, we will deploy it this time.

“You may not remember the economy of Nigeria was in shambles in 1999, oil production and prices had collapsed, until they came in; himself and Olusegun Obasanjo to salvage the situation.

“He was in charge of the economy at that time. All the things that came Nigeria way; all the debt relief that came our way had his input,” Obaseki said.

On his part, the National Organising Secretary of the party, Alhaji Umar Bature noted that with what he saw at the inauguration of the Campaign Council, Edo PDP is one.

He urged members of the PDP to channel their energy to the campaign with a view to winning the presidential election since there is no a governorship election in the state.
