He said: “Whoever says there is no PDP in Enugu is not saying the truth, there is PDP in Enugu and Enugu has been PDP from inception and is still PDP today and will continue to be PDP.
“When I came here few months ago to attend a zonal conference of the southeast, I said to the Igbos, I am going to be the stepping stone to the Igbo presidency. And I mean it.
“Whether an Igboman is from the south-East or South-South, it is the same race and today my running mate is an Igbo man. It is a universal ethnic group, it is a universal race.
“So, my fellow brothers and sisters, the people of Enugu State, I want you to continue believing and I want you to continue supporting the PDP because PDP is Enugu and Enugu is PDP.
“I want to let you know that this country is geared towards electing a PDP government, do not be an exception and do not be a minority. The next government is going to be formed by the PDP.
“Therefore as you have always been, be in the mainstream of Nigerian politics because that is the only way that can bring about the prosperity, economic development, the peace and the security you are looking for in this part of the country and the country in general.”
