The presidential candidate of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar, has rescheduled his visit to Abia for presidential rally.
According to a release by his Presidential Campaign Council in Abia state, the rally earlier scheduled for Tuesday, January 10, has now been moved forward to Monday, January 9.
The release signed by the Director Media and Publicity, Atiku/Okowa Presidential Council in the state, Kingsley Megwara, did not give reasons for the change in date but simply apologized for any inconveniences it might cause Atiku’s supporters and party faithful.
However, there is no change in the venue of the rally which remains Umuahia Township Stadium while time is 9:00am.
Although Governor Okezie Ikpeazu did not attend the inauguration of the Abia chapter of the Atiku/Okowa Presidential Campaign Council, members of the PCC have vowed to push ahead with the campaign despite the Governor’s association with Governor Nyesom Wike-led G-5 that has refused to identify with Atiku’s campaigns.
The Director General of the Atiku/Okowa Presidential Campaign Council, Chief Charles Ogbonnaya, promised to deliver Abia to Atiku at the poll.
He has maintained the Abia remains a PDP stronghold, and will deliver all PDP candidates at the forthcoming elections.
