2019: PDP denies issuing presidential campaign timetable
The Peoples Democratic Party has said it is yet to issue a timetable for its 2019 presidential campaign.
The party, in a statement issued by its National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, on Tuesday, in Abuja, said the party’s attention had been drawn to a post circulating on social media, purported to be the PDP’s presidential campaign timetable.
He said that the fabricators of the post even went as far as allocating venues and dates for zonal rallies, which they claimed to have emanated from the PDP Presidential Campaign Council.
“For the avoidance of doubt, the PDP clarifies that it has not yet released any timetable or timelines for our presidential campaigns. Similarly, our party has not yet allotted any dates or venues for our campaigns.
“The leadership of the PDP, therefore, urges all our members and supporters across the board to completely disregard the said timetable on social media, as it did not emanate from the PDP.
“The PDP Presidential Campaign Council, led by Senator Bukola Saraki, will soon make public the authentic timetable for our presidential campaign and such information will have the full seal of our party and disseminated through PDP official handles.”
