PDP group begins mobilizing voters for Atiku in Ekiti

Ahead of next year’s general election, the leadership of a group within the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in Ekiti state, “Ekiti Progressives,” has begun mass mobilization of voters in the 2,450 polling stations for the party’s presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar and other candidates in the state.

After the group’s first meeting of state leaders held in Ado-Ekiti following the defection of the Social Democratic Party (SDP) PDP last week, leaders praised the PDP presidential candidate, vice presidential candidate Governor Ifeanyi Okowa, National Vice-President (South) Ambassador Taofeek Arapaja and the PDP candidate in the 2020 Ondo state governor elections, Eyitayo Jegede, SAN for their support of their return to the party.

The group also praised Senator Biodun Olujimi, Hon Henrich Akomolafe, Dr. Hamza Talba, Mr Funsho Ayeni, Chief Raymond Dokpesi, Senator Philip Aduda, Senator Dino Melaye and PDP national leadership under Senator Iyorchia Ayu for making the defection and declaration possible last week.

To ensure the victory and success of Atiku and PDP candidates in the upcoming elections in the state, the group has set up a 20-strong mobilization team for every polling station in the state.

The group’s coordinator, Wale Ayeni, said the moves became necessary, “to jump start from door to door, house to house, street to street, city to city, church to church, mosque to mosque, office to office and school to school voter mobilization for the former vice president and other PDP candidates in Ekiti.”

He added that it has set Monday, October 4, 2022, to trigger mass voter mobilization for Atiku and PDP candidates in Ekiti in each of the three senatorial districts, starting in Ekiti South.
