The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP assures, has given assurance that; if elected back to power in 2019, it will ensure an uninterrupted education calendar in the sector.

Mrs Jennifer Atiku, wife of the PDP presidential candidate, Alhaji Abubakar Atiku, gave the assurance in her remarks at the flag-off of the Edo Central Senatorial campaigns; by the party on Sunday in Uromi, Esan North East Local Government Area of Edo State.


Atiku said that; a PDP assures 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 assures;  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; an urgent need to get every sector of the country working again to enable citizens enjoy better life.

Addressing the gathering, the state Chairman of the party, Chief Dan Orbih, said; the party had enjoyed unbroken support from Esan people since 1999.


Orbih, who said the party was on a mission to rescue the country, added; 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.

He 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 PDP assures about securing; a better future for Nigerians and the nation’s hard earned democracy.

ALso criticised the appointment of Amina Zakari, who is alleged to be a very close relative of President Buhari, as head of INEC’s collation centre.

Zahara has, however, since denied the allegation, saying she was not related to Buhari.

The chairman said INEC, like Caesar’s wife, must not only be above board, but must also be seen to be above board.
