The PDP, in a statement signed by its national publicity secretary, Chief Olisa Metuh, congratulated the citizens for keeping faith with the Nigerian project and working together in building a strong nation and one of the fastest growing economies in the world.
The party urged Nigerians to use the anniversary to re-commit to respecting their leaders at the local government, state and national levels, while paying adequate reverence to national symbols and institutions.
PDP Restores Zoning, Moves To Field Northern Candidate In 2019
