Dr (Mrs) Jennifer Douglas-Abubakar, wife of the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, has called on the people of Rivers state to vote out the incumbent administration. She advised that they should not just vote, but protect their votes.

She made the call on Monday, in Port-Harcourt during PDP’s nationwide campaign tour ahead of Saturday’s Presidential election.

Her words: “Great people of Rivers State, thank you for your immense support and for standing by your governor. I am rest assured that Rivers State will deliver their votes for PDP at the forthcoming presidential elections.

“We don’t have to beg for your votes; I know Rivers State is hundred percent PDP. Come out and vote en masse; bring your children, your husband and all your households. Don’t just vote; stay and protect your votes. Don’t let them take away your vote. Women, come out en masse let us send them parking.”

Mrs Abubakar appreciated the people of Rivers State for their support for their governor and love for Atiku.

Meanwhile, Atiku has assured that PDP would not make vain promises as the All Progressives Congress (APC) did in 2015 to deceive the people. He said his government will provide jobs, revamp the economy, tackle insecurity and will be gender sensitive.

PDP National Chairman, Prince Uche Secondus, while speaking at the rally said: “Kano has fallen, Kano is now 100 percent PDP.”

Secondus said the myth and belief that Kano was the stronghold of President Muhammadu Buhari has been shattered with the huge crowd at the Kano Stadium.

The PDP National Chairman further assured that “the current analogue government must be voted out to a more efficient digital government.”

“This analogue government must be changed to a digital one. APC is going, and PDP in taking over. Buhari is insensitive of the security challenges in the country. He is not aware that the Kano governor is deeply engrossed in corruption,” he said.

The Senate President, Dr. Bukola Saraki, who doubles as PDP Campaign Director General, called on Rivers people to come out in large numbers and deliver the vote that will take Atiku to Aso Rock. He assured that Atiku will remove poverty from the land, revamp the economy and create jobs for the youths. He called on them to ensure they don’t just vote but defend their votes as well.

On his part, the Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike, described APC as darkness and PDP as light, adding that APC is known for dictatorship but PDP will guarantee everyone’s freedom.

Meanwhile, 58 governorship candidates from various parties said they are adopting Atiku Abubakar and Nyesom Wike as their candidates. According to them, the alliance is as a result of their good works. They described Wike as “Mr Excellent Projects”, stressing that their withdrawal from the race is to ensure that the elections in Rivers State is peaceful.
