#TrackNigeria: Mrs. Abeji Egwa, Woman Leader, Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), in Benue, has assured Mrs. Titi Abubakar, the wife of PDP presidential candidate, that her husband would receive bloc votes from the state.
Egwa gave the assurance on Monday in Makurdi, during the PDP Women Presidential Campaign Rally.
“I want to assure you that the entire Benue will vote for the PDP; I also want to assure you that the women in the state will ensure that your husband records overwhelming success here,” she said.
The woman leader said that Atiku deserved the support of Benue voters because he had the required experience to improve their lot, and urged voters to support candidates that could protect their interests.
Mrs. Keziah Agundu, a former chairman of the PDP in Benue, who also also spoke at the rally, expressed optimism that PDP candidates would win all seats they were contesting for.
Agundu commended Titi Abubakar for the visit, and promised that it would yield the desired results.
Former Speaker, Benue House of Assembly, Mrs. Margaret Icheen, in her remarks, commended Gov. Samuel Ortom and his wife for “working hard to make Benue better”.
Icheen expressed optimism that the party would win by a landslide margin at the polls.
Also speaking, Mrs. Rebecca Apedzan, a former commissioner in the state, appealed to the youths to rally support for the PDP because it was “the only political party that can take you off the streets”.
”Your joblessness will end as soon as the PDP wins the general elections; your vote for PDP will be for your overall good,” she said.
In a solidarity message, wife of former Senate President, Mrs. Helen Mark, expressed confidence that the PDP would do well in the forthcoming elections.
“With the massive support the party is enjoying, we are sure of winning the polls,” she said. (NAN)
