The People's Democratic Party, PDP says its ready to receive the Presidential Candidate and his team in Edo State on Saturday.
The State Party Secretary, Chief Felix Imoisili said they are ready to give their votes to the PDP Presidential Candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar on February 16.
Chief Imoisili was speaking on the eve of the Presidential Campaign rally in Edo.
He said they would vote for the person that would bring Nigeria out of poverty, unemployment and hunger.
The Ancient city of Benin is already agog because of Saturday's Presidential rally. You can see the happiness of the people that the man who will bring out Nigerians from the shackles of poverty and incompetence will be here in Benin, Chief Imoisili stated.
Governed by Opposition
He said despite the fact that they are being governed by the opposition Party, the PDP had always won the presidential elections in Edo State since inception of Democracy in 1999.
We are majority in the National Assembly as at today, we have almost 70% of the House of Representatives Membersso we know what is happening in the State. The last governorship election was a big fraud, the election was massively rigged but we cant stand it any longer, it can never happen again, he added.
A member of the PDP Presidential Campaign Council, Alex Adogie said Nigerians want a leader that could turn the country around positively.
The country is yearning for someone that has experience in business, Economy who can turn Nigeria around for the better economically, and such leader is Atiku Abubakar, because that is a man that has experience in economic policies and that is what the country needs now, Mr Adogie said.
He says why he is the best candidate is because during Olusegun Obasanjo's regime as President, when Atiku was the Vice President, he was the head of the Economic team that elevated Nigeria to greater heights.
He headed the economic team and assembled Ngozi Okonjo Iweala, El- Rufai, Oby Ezekwesili Chukwuma Soludo and those good economic giants that moved this country forward so it's a big plus for him at this time.
Mr Adogie said with the crowd that turned out for the Atiku campaign rally, even in APC governing States, like Niger, Nasarawa and Kogi States, the People's Democratic Party was confident on what the election would be.
