Delta state government shuts down schools for Atiku campaign rally
In preparation for the Peoples Democratic Party’s presidential campaign rally in the state on Tuesday, the Delta State government closed all schools on Monday in Asaba, the state capital.
Due to the PDP presidential candidate’s visit to Asaba on Tuesday, the administration of several schools in the state advised their students not to go back to school on that day.
However, Asaba, particularly Stephen Keshi Stadium, the location of the presidential rally, and the recently built Koka fly-over, have taken on new appearances in anticipation of the visit despite an increase in the number of security officers in the city.
Ifeanyi Okowa, the party’s vice presidential candidate and governor of Delta State, claimed that there was evidence that Nigerians were sick to death of the dysfunctional APC-led federal government.
Okowa remarked that the PDP would give Nigerians the inclusive and focused leadership that the nation so desperately needs while speaking at the Stephen Keshi Stadium shortly after touring the facility’s preparations.
He said, “The warm reception and support PDP had across the country showed that Nigerians had become optimistic about the need for positive change.
“The party is determined to rescue the nation and deliver good governance to the people. The party’s presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, being an experienced politician knows the path to Nigeria’s recovery and I will work with him and other citizens to recover, reset and rebuild the country.
“Nigerians are already tired if the APC-led government and we are very much aware of what the situation is in this country.”Okowa expressed satisfaction with the arrangements at the venue stressing that the party would have a very successful rally on Tuesday.
