THE Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has said it is targeting 100 per cent   votes in the Southeast geopolitical zone in the   February elections .

   As a demonstration of the plan, all markets in Onitsha, including the popular ever-busy Main Market, were again closed down yesterday in honor of the visiting campaign team of the party led by Chief Chris Uba.

  And being the last leg of the general tour of the North Senatorial zone, the Onitsha Central School field, Odoakpu venue of the campaign rally came alive at about 5:15 pm when Uba, leading other party chieftains, including Senator Annie Okonkwo, Prince John Emeka, Chief Charles Odedo, Chief Emma Nweke and other top party stakeholders made their entry in a grand style. 

 Uba appealed to voters to endeavor to go to collect their permanent voters’ card(PVC) to enable them vote on during election. 

  HAVING successfully concluded the campaign tours of Anambra North zone, the Chief Chris Ubah-led PDP campaign train in Anambra state Friday commenced tour of Anambra Central senatorial zone. Their first port of call was Achalla, the headquarters tpdpof Awka North Local Council, and later move to Awka South, Anaocha, Njikoka, Idemili North and Dunukofia councils.

   From Achalla, the campaign train rode in grand style into Awka, the headquarters of Awka South council. They also used the opportunity to pay a courtesy call to the traditional ruler and monarch of Awka, Obi Gibson Nwosu.

  The turn out was awesome as speaker after speaker acknowledged that PDP in still very much on ground in the zone/state.

  Uba, in his speech, acknowledged and appreciated President Goodluck Jonathan for what he has done for the state and Southeast zone. He, therefore, urged all citizens in the state to vote massively for Jonathan and all the PDP candidates so as to continue enjoying the special attention of the Federal Government. 

 Okonkwo, who got a standing ovation, assured the people that his initial stint at the National Assembly opened a floodgate of goodies for the state, saying his return to the senate would unleash even more development on the zone. A return would also put him on a better position of advantage as a ranked senator, with so much privileges and benefits for the constituency, he said.

Nweke confirmed that he has a lot of programmes already running under his Madam Esther Nweke Foundation, through which he has been reaching the less privileged.  

  He stated that with the instrumentality of the National Assembly he would cover more mileage and attract the Federal Government and other international donors to the constituency.
