FORMER President Atiku Abubakar and a leading presidential aspirant of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on Tuesday, charged his party members to forge uncommon unity if the party’s desire to take back the presidency from the current ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) is to be attained.

The PDP presidential aspirant made the charge while meeting the Oyo State National Delegates and the party’s leadership in Ibadan.

The former Vice-President, who called for the rejection of the APC during the 2019 general elections by Nigerians, cited the various problems confronting the generality of the people as the reason for his call.

He maintained that the PDP as a strong party stands a very good chance to provide the veritable platform for the generality of the people to actualise the desired change, but, this could only be done through unity among the party members ahead of the general elections.

Recalling that Oyo State belongs to the PDP, the presidential aspirant said, “we should come, work and unite together to reject APC in 2019 general elections”, asking that Oyo State residents must make sure that PDP does not only win the state but, also win at the federal level”.

He charged the people further, “reject APC at the poll so that by the grace of God, the state and the centre will be governed by the PDP governor and President”.

While welcoming the party stakeholders, the Director-General, Atiku Campaign Organisation and the former governor of Ogun State, Otunba Gbenga Daniel, he told them that PDP would in 2019 return to rule the South West.

He also assured the presidential aspirant that the party would continue to provide the necessary leadership from the zone to justify the confidence being reposed in it.

Former Minister of Power and Steel, Elder Oyelese, who spoke on behalf of the party’s stakeholders commended the presidential aspirant for his visit to the state and assured that the party would work assiduously for the emergence of the party as the ‘ruling party’ both at the state and at the federal level.
