The Peoples Democratic Party Presidential Campaign Organisation has postponed its rallies as a result of the trip of its presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, to the United States.

Recall that The Eagle Online reported in the early hours of Friday (today) that Abubakar landed in Washington D.C.

In a terse statement signed by the PDP PCO Director of Field Operations, Umar Bature, the party stated that its presidential rallies earlier scheduled to be held in Ondo, Kebbi, Ekiti and Bayelsa States would no longer hold as scheduled.

It added that new dates would be communicated once they were fixed.

The statement reads in part: “This is to formally inform all Management of the PCO that in view of our Candidates’ trip to the United States, our Presidential Rallies earlier scheduled for Ekiti, Ondo, Kebbi and Bayelsa States will no longer hold as scheduled.

“New dates will be communicated once they are fixed. All inconveniences regrettable.”

Recall that the former Vice President of the country from 1999 to 2007 on Thursday left Nigeria for a trip to the United States for political campaigns and meetings.
