successes recorded so far.

He told supporters of PDP that all strategies
have been perfected in Kaduna and Nigeria

about 16 years with good records of
performance and would be difficult for the
opposition party to defeat the party during

development .

over two million women and youth annually

after elections to desist from such vices and
consider the need for a hitch-free elections.

been prosecuted accordingly.

those clamouring for change, they don’t
have anything to offer.

Yero who also took turn to address the
gathering admonished the people not to
give in to any form of harassment,
intimidation or fear.

“Don’t intimidate anyone, don’t harrass
anyone but don’t allow yourselves to be
intimidated, come out without any fear and
cast your votes, protect your votes and that
of your friends.
“The security operatives will be on ground
to protect you at all times and against all
forms of intimidation and break down of
law and order.”

colleagues and acquaintances for the PDP.
