Former Senate President, Dr Abubakar Bukola Saraki, has admonished members of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in Kwara State to close ranks and unite in order to secure victory for the party in the 2023 general elections.
Saraki said it is paramount for the PDP to secure victory in 2023 for the good of its members and the entire people of Kwara State.
The PDP Presidential hopeful gave the admonition in Ilorin, the state capital, while addressing all aspirants on the platform of the PDP in the state.
Saraki, according to a statement by his Press Officer on Local Matters, Abdulganiyu Abdulqadir, commended stakeholders, aspirants and their supporters for their cooperation so far, noting that a lot still needs to be done to ensure that their efforts do not end in vain.
He said: “As aspirants, you made commitments, promises and now is the time to stand by your words.”
The PDP National leader added that not only the aspirants, but also all members of the party, must ensure that all hands are on deck to guarantee the party’s victory in next year’s elections.
“We need everyone to win this battle as prosperity and development abound when the PDP forms the government in Kwara and Nigeria at large,” he said.”
The Presidential hopeful, who on Friday emerged as one of the two PDP consensus candidates from the northern axis, appealed to party leaders in the state to be just, fair and unbiased in the emergence of the party’s candidates.
All aspirants who spoke at the meeting assured the leadership of the party of their readiness to work together and deliver victory for the PDP in the coming elections.
