In honor of the party’s presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, the Peoples Democratic Party and supporters of the Atiku-Okowa ticket in Anambra State have announced a day off from work.
On December 15, 2022, the former vice president is scheduled to travel to Anambra to hold a rally in preparation for the 2023 election.
This information was provided in a statement released in Anambra state on December 7, 2022, following a gathering of party leaders, activists, and members of the state management committee under the direction of Prof. Obiora Okonkwo in order to prepare for the state’s presidential rally.
Uloka Chukwubuikem, Deputy Director of Media and Publicity for the Atiku-Okowa presidential campaign in Anambra, signed the statement.
As a show of support and solidarity with the PDP presidential candidate, whose ambitions the party has termed as a trumpet cry to save the nation, the party faithful unanimously resolved to declare Thursday of next week as a work-free day.
The statement read: “Anambra is home to Atiku Abubakar. Aside from being our in-law and having kids whose maternal home is in Onitsha, he has for years demonstrated love and interest for our dear state.
“We can recall that in 2007 Atiku Abubakar as a candidate of the defunct ACN, picked Senator Ben Ndi Obi from Awka as his running mate. In 2019, he again single-handedly chose Peter Obi to be his running mate, despite not being the choice of many PDP leaders.
“Anambra is home to Atiku and he is one of us, we must acknowledge that and express love for him whenever he is coming to the state.
“There’s no better way to honor him than to declare a voluntary work-free day as resolved by PDP stalwarts, and ardent supporters of the Atiku-Okowa ticket in Anambra State.
“We are hoping that Anambra will empty at the venue of the campaign rally in Awka and reiterate our organic support for Atiku and the PDP. No doubt, Anambra has always been a stronghold of the PDP, and we will prove that to the nation on December 15, and eventually ensure that the PDP wins all positions in the state, from the presidency to the least-contested position.
“Among the many states of the federation that will give the PDP and Atiku Abubakar a majority vote in 2023, Anambra will take the lead and ensure that we are not left out in the task to rescue and recover Nigeria. We hope that the campaign rally will serve as a prelude for the general election in February of next year.”
