Okowa, Tambuwal, other PDP leaders visit Obasanjo in Ogun
Governor Aminu Tambuwal, the Director-General of the PDP Presidential Campaign Organisation, the party’s vice presidential candidate, Governor Ifeanyi Okowa, and other PDP leaders, including Dr. Sule Lamido, former Osun State governor, Olagunsoye Oyinlola; former governor of Cross River State, Liyel Imoke, and Oyewole Fasaweon, met with former Nigerian President, Olusegun Obasanjo, at his Ogun State residence, on Saturday.
Speaking after a closed-door session, Tambuwal said the team was in Abeokuta “to pay our usual respect and to continue to consult our leader, former President Olusegun Obasanjo, on matters of national interest, and we have had a very fruitful conversation with him.”
He added: “We’re in the buildup, and we will continue to do what we have to do to win the election.
“My message to Nigerians is that we should come out en masse when it is time to vote in February for a balanced ticket that reflects the characteristics of this country, that will provide leadership that will stabilise this country, revive our economy, and foster more of a sense of national unity, and that is Atiku Abubakar and Governor Okowa.”
Tambuwal hinted that the party was expecting a very rousing and large crowd at its presidential campaign rally in Lagos on Monday.
