Supplementary polls: Give PDP overwhelming support, Atiku begs voters


Atiku Abubakar, presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has asked voters to give the party “overwhelming support” during the supplementary elections.


In a statement released on Thursday, Paul Ibe, Abubakar’s media adviser, said his principal spoke in Yola, the capital of Adamawa.


The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) is scheduled to conduct supplementary elections on Saturday.


The commission had declared the March 18 governorship election in Adamawa and Kebbi states inconclusive.


The supplementary polls will also be conducted in five senatorial districts, 31 federal constituencies, and 58 state constituencies across the country.


Abubakar asked voters in the areas where the supplementary polls will take place to “come out in large numbers” to cast their ballot for the PDP.


The former vice-president specifically asked voters in Adamawa and Kebbi to vote “overwhelmingly” for the PDP governorship candidates.

 “In both Adamawa and Kebbi where supplementary elections shall be held on Saturday, I wish to make a special appeal to the voters in the respective polling units where elections shall be taking place to make sure that the PDP enjoys overwhelming support through their votes,” Abubakar was quoted as saying.


“It is an established fact that the APC has failed the people of this country and, especially, in Kebbi state, the more reason it is incumbent on the electorate to vote them out and return the PDP.”


Abubakar came second in the February 25 presidential election. He and his party, the PDP, are challenging the election outcome at the tribunal.
