Former President Goodluck Jonathan and wife Dame Patience Jonathan on Monday, graced the presidential campaign rally of the Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP) in Rivers State.
The Jonathans were at the occasion in the company with wife of the presidential candidate of the PDP Dr. (Mrs.) Jennifer Douglas-Abubakar and wife of the President of the Senate, Dr. (Mrs.) Toyin Saraki.
Addressing the mammoth crowd at the Adokiye Amiesimaka Stadium in Port Harcourt, wife of the PDP candidate, Mrs. Abubakar, urged women across the state to mobilise their entire household for victory for PDP on Saturday.
Mrs. Abubakar, who spoke on behalf of women, advised them to protect their votes and ensure they are counted.
She stressed the need to vote out the ‘incompetent’ government of APC, which according to her, “represents hunger, insecurity, economic hardship” and all manner of vices.
She assured women that the Atiku administration will not relegate them but will give them a level playing ground to unleash their potential.
“A vote for Atiku is a vote for a better Nigeria,” she said.
On his part, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, the PDP presidential candidate vowed to uphold the rule of law and protect the constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
Atiku gave the assurance while addressing thousands of party faithful at a presidential rally at the Adokiye Amiesimaka Stadium in Port Harcourt on Monday.
The PDP presidential candidate who was accompanied by his running mate, Peter Obi, and other leaders of the party promised to uphold the rule of law. “If you (masses) elect PDP and Atiku into office; I will restructure Niger Delta and all other parts of the country. We must restructure the country. “Secondly, after the Obasanjo/Atiku administration started the East West highway project; till today it has not been completed. “It has not been completed because we did not vote PDP to continue in power in 2015. The project has been haunted till today. We are going to complete it, if voted into power,” he assured.
Atiku said his administration would complete the dredging of old Port Harcourt and Onne sea ports if he wins Feb. 16 presidential polls.
