The Senate President, Mr. David Mark, has warned the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, against complacency ahead of the 2015 general elections, saying the party has serious opponents to contend with at all levels.
The senate president gave the warning at the Presidential Villa Abuja last night during the inauguration of the party’s National Campaign Council chaired by National Chairman of PDP, Dr. Adamu Muazu.
He spoke few hours after former Head of State General Muhammadu Buhari (retd), emerged as the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
The senate president, therefore, charged members of the PDP campaign council to work hard to sell the party’s candidates to the electorates.
“Members of this council have serious work to do as the party’s opponents are serious opponents to contend with”, Mark said.
In his remarks, President Goodluck Jonathan said the council would oversee all PDP campaigns, urging members to embark on issues-based campaigns.
Meanwhile, a former national chairman of the PDP, Dr. Ahmadu Ali, has been appointed as the director-general of Jonathan’s Presidential Campaign Committee.
The committee is to be formally inaugurated at the Legacy House, Maitama in Abuja on Monday.
