By Sunny A. David, Onitsha
The vice presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Mr. Peter Obi in the 2019 general elections, has called on Nigerians to massively vote candidates of the PDP in Saturday’s elections.
He made the call during a news conference in his Onitsha residence.
The Vice Presidential candidate said in spite of the outcome of the Feb. 23 presidential and National Assembly elections, supporters of PDP should be emboldened and come out on March 9 to vote in PDP candidates.
He used the medium to assure PDP supporters that the party would challenge the declaration of President Muhammadu Buhari as the winner of the Feb.23 presidential election in court.
”I believe in the rule of law and the court, and I know justice will be done on our matter when we finish filling our matter,” Mr. Obi stated.
The immediate past Governor of Anambra State condemned killings that characterised Feb. 23 elections and condoled families of those who lost their wards in the process.
Mr. Obi commended young Nigerians who participated in the nation’s elections for the first time.
He condemned what he tagged intimidation of some Nigerians who wanted to vote in their areas of residence.
”Those deterring others from participating in the electoral process in places where they live and do business are trying to start what they cannot finish,” the Vice Presidential candidate stressed.
