The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has given assurance that if returned to power in 2019, it would ensure an uninterrupted education calendar in the country.
The party made this known through Mrs Jennifer Atiku, the wife of the PDP presidential candidate, Alhaji Abubakar Atiku, at the flag-off of the Edo Central Senatorial campaigns by the party yesterday in Uromi, Esan North East local government area, Edo State.
Mrs Atiku said that a PDP government would ensure that students who “are presently out of school due to the lingering ASUU strike get back to their classrooms”.
She also said that a PDP government would create an environment for business to thrive with a view to ensuring that the citizens were lifted above poverty.
She said there was urgent need to get every sector of the country working again to enable citizens to enjoy better life.
Also speaking, the party state chairman, Chief Dan Orbih, said the party had enjoyed unbroken support from Esan people since 1999 and urged every member of the party would go back to their various LGAs, wards and units in Esan land to preach the gospel of rescuing Nigeria.
Orbih, who said the party was on a mission to rescue the country, urged the people to come out en masse to vote PDP and ensure that their votes counted and defended.
He further said that the election wasn’t about PDP but about securing a better future for Nigerians and the nation’s hard earned democracy.
Meanwhile, the party’s Edo Central Senatorial candidate, Sen. Clifford Ordia, said “we promise to do things differently but today with the opportunity given to us in 2015 we have been able to effectively serve our people”.
“We have surpassed their expectations and we are well positioned to do more when re-elected to the National Assembly,” he said.
Similarly, the PDP candidate in the Edo 2016 governorship election, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu, admonished the people to collectively halt any plan to rig the forth coming general elections.
He said that the party’s presidential candidate would perform and put smiles on the faces of Nigerians when elected as president.
