• We are Set for Victory Mobilisation- Campaign Director
Osun state chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party(PDP) has emerged the first of the South West states to launch the Atiku/Okowa Presidential Campaign Council with Governor-elect, Senator Ademola Adeleke, describing Alhaji Atiku Abubakar the best candidate for Nigerian presidency due to his manifesto and his experience as the most tested of all the candidates.
The state chapter of the party also inaugurated the campaign headquarters which was officially handed over to the campaign Council by Senator Adeleke who is also the Chairman of the Campaign Council.
The party’s State Caretaker Chairman, Dr Adekunle Akindele read out the names of the council which included all who is who within the party as well as a 10 man campaign management committee headed by the former state Chairman of the party, Hon Sunday Bisi.
The party Chairman told the council members and candidates for the National and State Assemblies in attendance that the campaign structure is also replicated at the local, ward and unit levels, directing that local chapters should proceed with the inauguration of their campaign committees without any delay.
” We have the instruction of his Excellency, the Chairman of the Campaign Council, Senator Ademola Adeleke to deliver over a million votes for the PDP presidential ticket. It is doable and we are set to deliver.
” Our task is well spelt out- deliver your unit at all cost. We are to take the campaign to the grassroots and ensure we turn out the votes for Alhaji Atiku Abubakar. We have the full mandate of our Governor -elect who will be leading us from the front as the Chairman of the campaign council”, Dr Adekunle noted.
Why Nigeria Needs Atiku Presidency -Ademola Adeleke
Speaking while inaugurating the campaign council, Senator listed several reasons why Nigeria needs an Atiku presidency, charging the Council to deploy massively to deliver Osun State to the PDP at the Presidential, National Assembly and State Assembly election.
“Our victory at the governorship election will be incomplete unless we deliver at the federal level. As your Governor in Osun state, I need a President of our party at the federal level to support me as I deliver our five point agenda to the good people of Osun State. An Atiku Presidency will strengthen our state and assist us to surmount the many challenges facing state governance.
“Nigeria needs an Atiku presidency because he has the most updated, relevant and responsive manifesto among all presidential contenders. His plan for Nigeria fits into the aspirations of Osun people for restructuring of the Federation, for local government autonomy, for anti-corruption, for better infrastructure, for national unity in diversity and for good governance.
“Our votes must go for Atiku Abubakar because he is the most tested and trusted with sterling records of performance in and out of government. A combination of Atiku Abubakar and Dr Okowa at the presidency will take Nigeria to a prosperous level locally and internationally”, the Governor -elect stated, adding “Let us march out as we did during the governorship election to again win Osun with even bigger margins for PDP”
