Ahead of February general elections, the Director General of Atiku-Okowa Presidential Management Committee in Anambra State, Prof. Obiora Okonkwo, has said they have launched a campaign project called, ‘One Ward, Minimum of One Thousand Votes,’ to the grassroots in the effort to win majority votes in the state.
Okonkwo, who is a chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the state, explained that the campaign project would equally help Atiku Abubakar’s recovery plan to reach the electorate in the state.
Addressing newsmen in Awka, yesterday, he vowed that the party is working hard to “win as always,” insisting the PDP has, for months, gained significant converts to the Atiku-Okowa ticket, as well as its recovery plan.
He said they are confident of victory for the party in the coming presidential election, as they always did in the state.
He stressed that the Atiku-Okowa campaign is working to harness popular votes from about 2.5 million registered voters in the state.
He added: “We are taking the ‘One Ward, Minimum of One Thousand Votes’ campaign to the 326 wards in the state to make the campaign’s theme, ‘Win As Always,’ practical and impactful.
“With the inauguration of ward and polling booth canvassers, which will be launched on January 18, our gospel of recovery will be preached to every available Anambra voter for them to key into the Atiku-Okowa agenda.
“The canvassers will serve as apostles of Atiku-Okowa, and preach the gospel of the recovery and rescue agenda to every Anambra voter.
“The management committee has won over many voters for the party, and is still making inroads in the state. PDP will win as always. This time, with wide margins, as the campaign committee is targeting a significant per cent increase from previous victories in the state.”
