The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has adopted a grassroots structure for its electioneering campaign for the 2023 general elections, with plans underway to review its manifesto.

PDP spokesman Debo Ologunagba announced this at the end of the National Working Committee (NWC) meeting in Abuja.

Mr Ologunagba said the party also approved a unified campaign structure for its campaign across the country for the general elections and that the NWC, at its 97th meeting, deliberated on urgent national issues and the preparations for the forthcoming elections.

“NEC also approved the structure for campaign councils at the states, local government, ward and unit levels, while it unanimously empowers the NWC to modify and adjust the structures of the campaign councils as and when the need arises,” Mr Ologunagba explained. “NEC received and approved the proposed structure for Zonal Reconciliation Committees to be set up to ensure that our party presents a common front ahead of the 2023 general elections.”

The PDP spokesman added that the party’s NEC also received and approved the composition of the “Manifesto Review Committee to review the manifesto of the PDP ahead of the 2023 general elections.”

According to him, the party’s NEC also charged PDP members to remain united in rallying toward the success of the PDP at the general elections.

He further disclosed that NEC also decried the current state of the nation’s economy and the prolonged strike by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) among others.

Mr Ologunagba added that the NEC unanimously passed a vote of confidence in the PDP’s NWC led by Iyorchia Ayu for effectively managing the party’s affairs.

“NEC thanked Jibrin for his loyalty and commitment toward the unity, stability and success of the Party at all times and urged him not to relent in his service to the Party and the Nation at large,” stated Mr Ologunagba. “NEC unanimously ratified the list of candidates of the party as submitted to the INEC by the NWC.”
