Senate President ,David Mark has charged Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) faithful to work hard before the electorate in order to guarantee victory at the various stages of the elections.
Senator Mark said:”We want to win convincingly at all levels. There will be no room for any manipulation. We as members of the PDP will not rig. We will not allow opposition parties to rig us out. We have enough evidence to show to the electorate why the PDP remain the preferred choice in 2015,
Addressing PDP stakeholders from the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Abuja, Benue, Nasarawa, Kogi, Kwara, Niger and Plateau states making the North Central Zone in Abuja yesterday, the Senate President told any body or party planning electoral malpractices to think otherwise because ” we are committed to free, fair, credible and acceptable elections.”
He however asked his party members not to take anything for granted just as he stressed the need for them to strategize and reach out to the electorate ahead of the polls.
He acknowledged the challenges posed by the opposition parties but expressed optimism that PDP has lived up to its billings in terms of delivery of dividends of democracy to Nigerians, a positive evidence that it would do more if given another mandate.
Senator Mark listed the reasons to include return of the rail way transport services, improved Road net works, modernized airports, Agriculture and rural development, enhanced power supply, political stability, adherence to the principles of rule of law and human rights as well as freedom of expression under President Goodluck, EBELE Jonathan’s administration.
In their separate remaks, governors of Benue, Gabriel Suswam, Plateau’s Jonah JANG and Niger’s Babangida Aliyu said they would work hard to ensure the victory of PDP in the zone.
Like the Senate President, they noted the incursion of opposition parties in the zone but insisted that PDP remains the party to beat.
