“It is a must-win election because of the state of this nation. Atiku has dedicated his life to making life easy for Nigerians. We must convince the people, to see a better future for Nigeria rather than for ourselves,” Olufeso said.
In his address, Jegede expressed confidence that PDP would repeat the 2019 feat in the state when the party won the presidential election in the state.
He said, “We are going to do better than what we did in 2019. This is a winning team. We are all generals in this war. Let us go and work as one.”
The suffering is too great in the land. By the grace of God, we shall send them away. If you vote for Atiku, he will need the support of those in the National Assembly. So, let’s vote for all the candidates of PDP.” ,
