The Muslim Muslim presidential ticket of APC would breed religious intolerance and disunity in Nigeria.
Senator Ifeanyi Okowa, the vice presidential candidate of PDP made the assertion yesterday in Abia while addressing a rally of the party.
He therefore called on Nigerians to reject the APC with the same faith presidential ticket.

Okowa who is also the governor of Delta State, called on the people of South East to continue to identify with the PDP, a party that is sensitive to the political aspirations and welfare of the Igbos.
The vice presidential hopeful tasked Abia citizens and indeed all Igbos to work for the victory of PDP in this month election.
Okowa explained further :”

“I say this with all seriousness because Atiku Abubakar will win the Presidential election and PDP will return to power at the federal level and when that happens, we want to ensure that Abia State is counted.

“We know that the South East has suffered a lot under the APC and that is why Atiku said he would unite Nigerians and ensure that every part of the country is carried along.

“We want to restore the dignity of the Igbo man and by the grace of God, when Atiku Abubakar and I become President and Vice President, we will be able to ensure that the construction of railway from Port Harcourt to Aba and Ikot-Ekpene is done.

“Atiku is a man who is fair to all and he will work for all Nigerians, including Christians and Muslims to make life better for all.

“We say no to a Muslim-Muslim ticket because that is not good enough for our country Nigeria. We can work together to make Christians and Muslims live peacefully in this country.

“Let me assure you that the Igbos will benefit from the principal positions due to each of the six geopolitical zones,”
He said the mission of PDP is to remove APC from Aso Rock and have a government that would end insecurity, poverty and unemployment.
He urged to vote for PDP, the opposition must be united to fight the battle.

“Let me reiterate that Atiku will raise 10 million dollars to support businesses across the country; so, we must support him because he is the candidate that is best positioned to win the elections and rebuild our country,”
On his part, the Presidential Candidate of the party, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, said that his mission and that of the PDP was to rescue and rebuild the country, adding that tribal or religious sentiments are foreign to his party.
He observed that Nigeria was better economically under the PDP administration.
