Mr Abubakar, who formally declared his intention to vie for the presidential seat under PDP, said he was overwhelmed by the mammoth crowd that graced the occasion confirming the popularity of PDP in the state.

He criticised the All Progressives Congress (APC) for failing Nigeria in areas of economy, security and job security, adding that he would address the the problem when elected president.

“PDP is a tsunami that will soon wipe out APC. We are not afraid, we are strong and coming like train to crush APC,” Mr Secondus said.

Mr Secondus assured all presidential aspirants level playing field and tasked APC on ensuring level playing field for all parties in 2019 general elections.

Without mentioning names, Mr Secondus announced the defection of some commissioners, House of Assembly members and council chairmen from APC to PDP.

Representatives of Mr Abubakar’s supporters in the North-east, North-central, South-south and South-east who spoke at the occasion also endorsed him for the 2019 election.
