The former presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party PDP and ex ex-vice president of Nigeria, Atiku Abubakar has appealed to the people of Kogi state to vote for the candidate of the party, Senator Dino Melaye as the party is on a mission to rescue the state from underdevelopment.
This is as he tasked the Independent National Electoral Commission Inec to conduct a credible election to redeem its battered image in the hearts of Nigerians
Atiku appealed on Thursday, during the PDP governorship grand finale campaign Rally held in Lokoja.
He said, “I am appealing to the Independent National Electoral Commission and the security agencies to conduct a free and fair election and ensure that our votes count”.
According to him, the general election conducted by the electoral commission left a lot of questions in the minds of Nigerians, hence the commission has the opportunity to redeem itself.
Atiku, however, called on the people of Kogi state to vote for the party’s candidate, Senator Dino Melaye and his running mate, Hajia Habibat Mohammed Deen, to salvage the state from the doldrum of maladministration in the state.
“Don’t allow yourself to be threatened. We know what happened in the last four years. They refused to allow us to use the stadium for our campaign but they can’t stop us from voting.”
