Abonyi said: “we unreservedly collapse all party structures and have rallied all our teaming supporters in favour of the PDP.
“We have since identified with the visionary leadership of Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi whose vision we have adopted as our mission and have vowed to join the political train of this responsible and dynamic governance.
“We are sure the PDP which we support it’s candidates will win in all the polling units and we want all voters to cooperate with the umpire for the election.”
Abonyi said that their job for the election is to mobilise the citizens for good turn out and ensure that the election is conducted without rancour in all the polling units.
