supporters full support in the party”, Nasara said.

He said that Chikere and his supporters would be treated equally without discrimination.
Nasara advised the party supporters to get their Permanent Voters Card (PVCs) before the end of the registration to enable them contribute to the success of the party in 2019.

Chikere said he realised his mistakes of being in the APC, saying thatPDP was the right party for him.He thanked the people in the senatorial district for their support and encouragement to contest under the platform of the PDP.

The aspirant urged the party supporters to play the game of politics accordingly for their success.
Chikere promised to provide more dividends of democracy to the people if voted into power.
“It is time for us to join hands in order to win the election and fight for our right,“ he said.
