The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has announced that all is set for its scheduled Presidential Campaign Rally in Benin City, the Edo State Capital on Saturday, October 22, 2022.
National Publicity Secretary of the Party, Hon. Debo Ologunagba, made the announcement at a press conference, in Abuja, on Friday.
He said, “The people of Edo State are very excited and ready to receive our Presidential Candidate, the peoples candidate, H.E Atiku Abubakar GCON and his running mate, the governor of Delta State, H.E Ifeanyi Arthur Okowa CON.
He accused the ruling APC of desperation which he said was responsible for the party’s resort to violence.
Ologunagba urged security agencies especially the Nigeria Police to rise to the occasion by ensuring sponsors and perpetrators of violence are brought to book to serve as deterrent to others.
He said the PDP on its part, would adhere to the terms of the peace accord signed with other party by ensuring that its campaigns are issued based and devoid of violence.
