2019: Atiku takes campaign to North-Central, South-West

Date: 2018-12-06

The Presidential Candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, will on Wednesday (today) take his campaign to the North-Central.

Our correspondent learnt on Tuesday that the North-Central rally would hold in Ilorin, Kwara State.

Recall that Atiku started his campaign with the North- West rally which was held in Sokoto on Monday.

It was further learnt that the South-West rally would hold in Ibadan, Oyo State capital on Thursday after the North Central rally.

The Director, Media and Publicity of the PDP Presidential Campaign Council, Mr. Kola Ologbondiyan; and the Kwara State Publicity Secretary of the PDP, Mr. Tunde Ashaolu, confirmed the development to our correspondent.

Ashaolu said the Ilorin rally would hold at the Metropolitan Square.

He urged all PDP members and supporters to come out en masse to show support for the party and its candidate.

Meanwhile, Ashaolu in a statement made available to journalists welcomed Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo to the state for the inauguration of one of the Federal Government’s Social Investment Programmes, TraderMoni.

He, however, claimed that the event slated for Friday is a vote-buying gimmick.

The statement read, "The party notes that the scheme was launched in 2015 and in the past three years, the Vice-President did not visit any state for 'TraderMoni,’ but few months to the general election, he has been going round markets in different states of the country to distribute money to traders and artisans.

“We want to believe this is not a ploy by the APC to induce them ahead of the elections.

"Nevertheless, the Kwara PDP warns against the partisanship of the initiative and advises that there should be no discrimination in the selection of beneficiaries in the state.

"The Vice-President and his team must ensure that beneficiaries are selected without recourse to political affiliations. Since this is a government scheme and not a party affair, beneficiaries must cut across political divides."
