The Ekiti State chapter of PDP Governance Grassroot Group PG3 has flagged off campaign activities with a call on the people to come out and vote Atiku Abubakar as President.
A press release signed by Ekiti State PG3 Public Relations Officer, Hon. Rapheal Adedipe said the flag off took place at the PDP State Secretariat, Ado-Ekiti on Friday.
The Programme had in attendance stakeholders of the party and members of PG3 across the sixteen local governments of Ekiti State.
In his speech, the National Coordinator, Comrade Amechi Oyema said Atiku Abubakar is the best choice for Nigeria.
According to him, “Alhaji Atiku Abubakar (GCON) was Vice President for two terms along side with former President Olusegun Obasanjo (GCFR). They introduced sound economic policies and brought development which people of the country can see physically like GSM. They established EFCC, Civil Defence, increased minimum wage, low price of petrol etc”
“Atiku is set to make this country work again. Please come together come February 2019 to use your PVC to vote in the man who is ready to make Nigeria work again.
“It’s right time for this country to be liberated from oppressors that are lying to the people of the country that they will do something.
“Since three and half years ago, they are still promising to do and bring changes to this country, instead of telling us what they have done. Price of goods in the market have skyrocketed, there is depression, rate of suicide has gone high since this government came to power, there is insecurity etc.
In his remarks, Ekiti State PG3 Coordinator, Pastor Adewumi Babalola JP stated that it is only PDP and Atiku that will put food on the people’s table all the time.
“Atiku is the only one we can trust to liberate this Nation from this group of people that called themselves cabal that are ruling this country as their own company.
Oba Adewumi said the state and local government executive’s will go to every corner to spread the PDP message of hope.
Oba Adewumi gave thanks to the Lord that made the stakeholders believe in the servant of God.
He said that appointment of more ministers of God to political positions can help to salvage the country.
The PG3 National Coordinator later inaugurated and flagged off state and local government chapters with a mandate to ensure PDP candidates from Atiku downwards win Ekiti in the elections.
Local musicians added colour to the event.
