Fabiyi urged the UK chairman and his members to rally all other PDP foreign chapters leadership to galvanize and lend their strong voices in support of Atiku Abubakar’s aspiration in 2023.
“I understand some of you may not be delegates to the party primaries, but I do know that you have voices that can help our party take the right decisions. That decision, as we all have agreed here, is Atiku Abubakar.

He assured that the foreign chapters of the party will support the new national leadership of the party in its mission to rescue Nigeria.
