Hundreds of supporters of Atiku Abubakar, the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), on Wednesday in Ibadan staged a Freedom Walk to mobilise support for his aspiration.
Three prominent chieftains of the party in Oyo State, led the party members to stage the walk boycotted by loyalists of Governor Seyi Makinde.
They were former ministers Jumoke Akinjide, Wole Oyelese and former deputy governor Hazeem Gbolarumi.
The walk, which took off at the popular Total Garden Roundabout, went through Agodi Gate Area to Beere and terminated at the historical Mapo Hall where the party leaders addressed the large crowd of supporters.
In her remarks, Ms Akinjide urged the people of the state to vote for all PDP candidates during the forthcoming general elections.
She assured them that Mr Atiku, when elected as the President,his government would provide dividends of democracy to all and sundry.
Ms Akinjide, however, cautioned the PDP supporters not to listen to anyone who wants to denigrate or talk down on the party’s presidential candidate.
Commenting, Mr Gbolarumi implored all the electorate to vote for Mr Atiku, saying he is the most competent candidate among all.
In his remarks, Mr Oyelese said, “only Atiku Abubakar is competent to rule the country out of all presidential candidates.”
He urged the people of the state in particular, and Nigeria as a whole, to vote for Mr Atiku and all other PDP candidates in the coming elections.
