The Governor of Abia State, Dr Okezie Ikpeazu, has called on PDP members to go and get their voters card ahead of the 2019 general to enable them vote candidates of their choice.
Governor Ikpeazu who spoke in Asaba, the Delta State Capital, during a one day PDP Stakeholders meeting, said that the party in Abia is doing everything to ensure that Abians have their voters card ahead of the 2019 election.
“In Abia, we encourage our people who do not have voters card to go and get theirs and be ready for 2019. If you don’t have voters card, which is your power to vote, you will not have the opportunity to vote for the candidate of your choice. So I encourage PDP members everywhere to go and get their voters card.” Ikpeazu said.
Also speaking, the National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Prince Uche Secondus, said the All Progressive Congress (APC) failure to provide good governance is the motivation for Nigerians to vote for candidates of the PDP in the 2019 general elections.
Secondus spoke during the party’s stakeholders meeting at Asaba, expressed confidence that Nigerians will speak with one voice through their voters’ cards by voting for the PDP in the 2019 general elections.
According to him, “the weakest point in the history of the PDP is that we lost in the 2015 elections but, we should take advantage of the monumental failure of the APC. They came with a government of vengeance and have failed woefully and we must emphasise that our people must have voters’ cards because Nigerians want us to come together and rescue the country in 2019.”
“The NWC is here (Asaba) to consult with our Governors and we are presenting our road map to victory to them; on Tuesday, we will consult with members of the National Assembly,”
Prince Secondus who was at the event with the entire members of the NWC of the PDP disclosed that the PDP will wrestle power from the APC through aggressive awareness campaign for members of the party at the local government and ward levels to have their voters’ cards, assuring that the PDP has been repositioned with strong emphasis on the power of the people, the electorates who will always be given the chance to make their choice in a free and fair manner without fear.
The Governor Rivers State, Barr. Nyesom Wike, said the desire of Nigerians is for the PDP to take over power at the center in 2019, noting that based on performance, there is no fear about the party losing any of the states where they won the governorship position.
