PDP holds presidential rally in Benin City Saturday

The presidential campaign train of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) will on Saturday make a stop in Benin City, the Edo State capital. The venue for the event is the Samuel Ogbemudia Stadium.

The Director-General of the Atiku Presidential Campaign Organisation, Sokoto State Governor, Aminu Tambuwal, in an invite made available to The Guardian, charged all party leaders and supporters to converge on Benin City on Saturday.

The statement read in part: “This invites all elected PDP Governors, members of PDP National Working Committee, NASS Members, NEC members, BOT, members, state chapters, former governors, former Ministers, PDP candidates ; and stakeholders to the EDO State presidential campaign rally.”

He added: “Please endeavour to attend and participate as we join hands with our Presidential Candidate, H.E. Atiku Abubakar, GCON, (Waziri Adamawa) and Vice presidential candidate, H. E Senator Dr Ifeanyi Okowa CON, to Rescue Nigeria”.

Recall that the presidential candidate of the PDP, former Nigerian Vice President Atiku Abubakar and party bigwigs held a similar campaign in Kaduna after its official flag-off in Uyo, the Akwa Ibom State capital.

Although Atiku is currently in Europe, reportedly on official business, he is expected to return on Friday in time for Saturday’s rally in Benin City.
