ABUJA – President Goodluck Jonathan yesterday concluded his campaign tour of the 36 states of the Federation which was flagged off in Lafia, Nassarawa State on Monday, February 7, 2011.
A statement by Mr. Ima Niboro, Special Adviser to the President, Media & Publicity, said the President who ended the campaign in Dutse, Jigawa State thanked Nigerians for their massive turn-out.
With the conclusion of the state-by-state campaign by President Jonathan and Vice President Namadi Sambo, the stage is now set for the grand finale of the Peoples Democratic Party’s presidential campaign scheduled to hold at the Eagle Square in Abuja on Saturday, March 26, 2011.
“Keeping to a grueling and arduous schedule which sometimes had him campaigning in as many as three states in one day, President Jonathan has successfully taken his message of unity, togetherness, strength in diversity, peace and stability for rapid national progress to all the geo-political zones of the country”.
According to the statement, “the President thanks all Nigerians who have turned out in their thousands to listen to him and his team at their various campaign stops across the country”.
President Jonathan urged Nigerians to affirm that they have indeed received and taken his message of unity, peace and progress to heart by coming out to vote en-masse for the Peoples Democratic Party when the general elections begin next month.
He also extends his heartfelt appreciation to all officials and members of the PDP who have worked extremely hard to make his campaign tour a success and prays that God Almighty will crown their collective efforts with success at the polls.
