“We are proud of our members and direct them to continue to mobilize the people from person to person, room to room, house to house, family to family, compound to compound, community to community, ward to ward, LGA to LGA and throughout the State for the elections”, he said, adding that PDP’s power to carry the people of the State along is the secret of her popularity.
The Statement further adds that all programmes and activities of the PDP especially the ongoing campaigns at various levels from the wards to the State should run their normal course.
