The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, says its campaigns are on course even as it reassures supporters that it is already winning the 2015 general elections following the soaring nationwide acceptability of President Goodluck Jonathan and its other candidates ahead of the polls.
The party, which thanked its members and supporters who showed concerns over rumours against its National Chairman, Ahmadu Mu’azu, however charged them to remain focused on the campaigns and not to be distracted, especially as such is not unusual in an election year.
PDP National Publicity Secretary, Olisa Metuh, in a statement on Thursday said the party is very impressed with the quality of leadership President Jonathan is providing in the campaigns, which runs on his enviable performance and numerous verifiable achievements in all sectors of the economy.
“President Goodluck Jonathan has left no one in doubt that he is a national leader and one of the greatest bastions of Nigeria’s unity. He has remained committed to the stability and progress of our great country, a stance, which has continued to endear him to the electorates. Indeed, the PDP is very proud of him and his leadership”, the statement said.
The PDP said the achievements of the Jonathan-led administration have touched various sectors of the economy, positively impacting on the lives of all cadres of Nigerians across the zones and amongst all tribes, irrespective of class, creed and gender, pointing out that this is one of the major factors that stabilized the polity in the face of daunting challenges.
The party therefore urged Nigerians to be unrelenting in their support for President Jonathan’s re-election bid so as to move the nation to the next level of development with the consolidation of the gains already achieved through the Transformation Agenda of the current administration.
“Our focus is on a new era of prosperity driven by the fruition of our people oriented policies and programmes, with a dynamic economy where market forces are combined with the forces of partnership, solidarity and cooperation for the benefit of all Nigerians”, the party said.
It therefore charged its members to close ranks and redouble their efforts to ensure the overall success of the campaigns especially seeing that Nigerians are solidly behind the party.
