The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has said the outcome of its recent rally in Oyo signaled its readiness for a sweeping victory not only in State, but across the South West and across other five geo-political zones of the nation.
The main opposition party, in a statement by Kola Ologbondiyan, the spokesperson of Atiku/ Okowa Campaign Organization on Sunday, said the rally at Ibadan, the capital of Oyo State recorded unprecedented turnout of Nigerians.
He added that the turnout was in solidarity with the PDP’s presidential Candidate, Atiku Abubakar and a confirmation of reconciliations and unity in the PDP.
Ologbondiyan added that the oneness of purpose and consensus among the ranks of leaders, critical stakeholders and teeming members of the party with Gov. Seyi Makinde was in their collective drive to ensure victory for the PDP at all levels of the February and March elections.
“The unity and single-mindedness witnessed at the Oyo rally, just like in other states of the federation, further confirms that the PDP remains one big family.
“That PDP remains indissoluble and indivisible family driven by the patriotic mission to rescue and rebuild our nation with Abubakar on the saddle as President.
“The people of Oyo State and, of course the South West, are independent-minded, insightful, egalitarian and politically astute with unparalleled nationalistic outlook that cannot be swayed by parochial and narrow-minded sentiments.”
Ologbondiyan said that the action of solidarity by PDP teeming members and supporters in Oyo State, like in other states, had sent very strong signal to other political parties that the PDP remained firmly united in the South West and other parts of the country.
“Our campaign, once again, commends the people of Oyo State, professional groups, community leaders, faith-based groups, traditional institutions, youths and women groups.
Ologbondiyan urged the people of Oyo State and Nigerians across board to remain united and resolute as they come out enmasse to vote.
He urged them to take a firm stand, within the ambit of the law and democracy, by protecting their votes to the very end and elect Abubakar in the overall interest of the nation.
