Ayu, PDP candidates map out campaign strategies ahead 2023 polls
Candidates of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the 2023 general election have been advised on how they could woo the electorate to vote for the party in the elections.
Speaking during the opening session of a two-day workshop for the party’s candidates in the elections in Abuja last Thursday, the National Chairman of the party, Dr. Iyochia Ayu, said the workshop was organised for the candidates to interact and discuss modalities for the party to win the election and also develop ideas to move the party forward.
Ayu stated that the PDP in its first eight years in power from 1999 to 2007 introduced various agencies of government, which improved the lives and security of Nigerians as well as ensured transparency and accountability in government.
According to him, some of these agencies include the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, (EFCC), Bureau of Public Enterprises (BPE), and Independent Corrupt Practices Commission (ICPC), among others.
He stated that all indices of national growth and development including cost of food items, currency exchange rate and security situation that was well managed under the PDP administration had plummeted under the All Progressives Congress (APC) government in the seven and half years it has so far managed the country’s affairs.
He gave assurance that a victory for PDP in 2023 would certainly turn things around again for Nigerians.
Ayu, who was represented by the National Secretary of the party, Senator Samuel Anyanwu, at the workshop, also stated that the party had felt the pulse and sufferings of Nigerians since it left government in 2015, stressing that it was now placed in a better position to address the needs of the Nigerians more effectively and efficiently if it wins the 2023 general election.
The workshop was organised for the candidates to interact and discuss modalities for the party to win the elections.
Anyanwu, in his personal capacity, appreciated the candidates for coming from their various states to participate.
He also commended the organisers for putting the event together, describing it as successful.
He urged them to use the various development landmarks achieved under the PDP administration to campaign in their various constituencies and ensure victory for the party in the elections.
The workshop, which had as its theme ‘Leadership Dynamics for Winning Elections in Nigeria’ was also addressed by former Vice Chancellor of the University of Abuja, Prof. Nuhu Yakubu.
