The Director of Strategic Communication of the PDP Presidential Campaign Council, Dele Momodu, has said the departure of the party’s vice-presidential candidate, Ifeanyi Okowaduring a town hall meeting on Sunday, he has shown that the party is on track to win back Nigeria.
Momodu claimed that the exit was presidential because Okowa outshone other speakers.
Mr. Okowa represented the party’s presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, at the town hall meeting for dialogue with citizens.
The event was organized by the Center for Democracy and Development and Arise Television. It is the first in a series of meetings and Sunday’s event focused on security and the economy.
All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate Bola Tinubu did not participate nor did he send his running mate, Kashim Shettima, to represent him.
Our presidential candidate, Alhaji @Atiku Abubakar, and I firmly believe that:

“We are lucky to have Governor Okowa as our Vice Presidential candidate and Nigerians can now see why HE Atiku Abubakar chose him as his running mate. It was not a fluke.
“Not only did he sell our recovery plan, but he also provided practical solutions to problems. You can see how he behaved to the admiration of Nigerians when some supporters of other parties turned virulent. We also saw how he reminded the Labor Party’s presidential candidate, former Governor Peter Obi, who until May was a member and presidential candidate of the PDP.
“Ours is a campaign to take back Nigeria and at every opportunity we don’t forget to sell this to Nigerians. This is what Dr. Okowa did yesterday. We look forward to other interesting sessions like this one and we at PDP are ready. We don’t shy away from discussions unlike others,” Momodu said.
