Even though the president is yet to make any public pronouncement on his alleged ambition for the 2015 presidency, the rally which held in Owerri, Imo State capital, during the weekend saw the PDP leaders maintaining that the party is ready for the task ahead.
Addressing hundreds of PDP faithfuls at the Egbu Central School in Owerri North Local Government Area of Imo state, the Chairman of the Contact and Mobilisation Committee of the PDP in Imo State, Mr Jerry Chukwueke, said that the PDP led Federal Government under the Goodluck Jonathan administration has proven to Nigerians that theirs remains the party to beat in the 2015 elections, as the transformation agenda of the President has delivered the dividends of democracy to the people of the nation.
He added that the People’s Democratic Party in Imo state, and the entire Imo citizens are solidly behind the President if he considers contesting for presidency in 2015.
He also added that as part of their campaign, they are poised to ensure that power in Imo State returns to the People’s Democratic Party, come 2015.
The Chairman of the People’s Democratic Party, PDP, in Owerri North LGA, Mr Obinna Lumanze, also said that the effort of the Contact and Mobilisation Committee will go a long way to boost the popularity of PDP at the state and the National levels. He called on Imo citizens to support the PDP so they can wrestle power from the opposition in 2015 in the state.
