“Going by the way and manner the Peoples Democratic Party conducted its Presidential Primaries in Port-Harcourt, the Rivers state capital under free and fair atmosphere which eventually produced the former Vice President Atiku Abubakar as its presidential bearer for 2019 polls, the grassroots local government chairmen of the party in 774 local government areas in the country have gone to the field at the grass roots to drum support for Atiku Presidency come 2019.

‘’The people are going through untold hardship at both urban and rural areas across the states of the federation with no effort made by President Buhari’s government to make life comfortable for the people of this country.”
