The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) inaugurated its presidential campaign council in Ekiti on Tuesday, calling for massive votes for the party’s candidates all over the country in the 2023 general elections.
Inaugurating the council in Ado-Ekiti, Eddy Olafeso, the former zonal chairman of South-West PDP, urged PDP members in the state to close ranks and work for the victory of the party in the coming election.
Mr Olafeso said Nigerians had witnessed the worst Christmas in Nigeria’s history and charged the electorates to use their Permanent Voter Cards (PVCs) to vote for Atiku Abubakar and Ifeanyi Okowa, the PDP’s presidential and vice-presidential candidates.
Mr Olafeso, who equally inaugurated the state’s campaign manager committee, condemned the leadership style of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), alleging that Nigeria had been plunged into numerous problems without solutions.
The acting chairman of the Ekiti PDP PCC, Ogundipe Makanjuola, urged the party faithful to be committed to the success of the PDP in the presidential election.
Mr Makanjuola called on PDP supporters to mobilise support for the party and all its candidates in the election.
“We have been handed a very strategic task, a very challenging assignment. But by the special grace of God, it is not insurmountable. We shall succeed,” he said.
Other members inaugurated included Tunji Odeyemi, PCC secretary, former governors and deputy governors, serving and former lawmakers, chairmen, secretaries, BoT members, former lawmakers and serving, state youth leader, all local government party chairmen, including Sanya Atofarati, the PDP zonal publicity secretary, as members, among others.
