Atiku: Anambra Declares Work-free Day For PDP

Information reaching Ibom Focus says that Anambra Declares Work-free Day For PDP

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Anambra state has declared December 15 a work-free day for its members.

In a statement on Wednesday, Uloka Chukwubuikem, deputy director of media of the Atiku-Okowa campaign in the state, said the decision is part of activities for the PDP presidential rally in the state.

Chikwubuikem said the declaration is to honour Abubakar, adding that the PDP presidential candidate has always shown that he loves Anambra, and as such, the state should reciprocate the gesture.

“Anambra is home to Atiku Abubakar. Aside from being our in-law and having kids whose maternal home is in Onitsha, he has for years demonstrated love and interest for our dear state,” he said.

“We can recall that in 2007, Atiku Abubakar as a candidate of the defunct ACN, picked Senator Ben Ndi Obi from Awka as his running mate. In 2019, he again single-handedly chose Peter Obi to be his running mate, despite not being the choice of many PDP leaders.

“Anambra is home to Atiku and he is one of us. We must acknowledge that and express love for him whenever he is coming to the state.

“There’s no better way to honour him than to declare a voluntary work-free day as resolved by PDP stalwarts, and ardent supporters of the Atiku-Okowa ticket in Anambra State.”

He said Anambra will prove itself to the country and give the PDP significant votes in the 2023 elections.

“We are hoping that Anambra will empty at the venue of the campaign rally in Awka and reiterate our organic support for Atiku and the PDP,” he added.

“No doubt, Anambra has always been a stronghold of the PDP, and we will prove that to the nation on December 15, and eventually ensure that the PDP wins all positions in the state, from the presidency to the least-contested position.

“Among the many states of the federation that will give the PDP and Atiku Abubakar a majority vote in 2023, Anambra will take the lead and ensure that we are not left out in the task to rescue and recover Nigeria.

“We hope that the campaign rally will serve as a prelude for the general election in February of next year.”
