Speaking while inspecting the Legacy House headquarters of the PDP presidential campaign council in Abuja on Tuesday, November 6, the Senate president promised to effectively harness and coordinate all efforts and lead the party and its candidate to victory in the elections.
Vanguard reports that Saraki, who was conducted round various offices at the Legacy House by the party’s national chairman, Prince Uche Secondus, said the PDP will actualise citizens quest to rescue Nigeria.
"Since the emergence of Atiku as PDP Presidential candidate, there has been renewed hope among Nigerians towards actualizing their collective quest to rescue our nation from the misrule of the incompetent, divisive and deceptive President Muhammadu Buhari-led All Progressives Congress (APC) administration.
“Atiku’s candidacy has reunited Nigerians across board and reawakened our collective consciousness towards the restoration of purposeful leadership and national productivity, irrespective of ethnicity, religion and political affiliations," he added.
Also speaking, Secondus urged Nigerians to mobilise en-mass for the election, and tasked them to vote out the APC come 2019.
