Ayu later presented the PDP’s flag to Shuaibu Yema, the governorship candidate of the party.

On his part, the former President of the Senate, Abubakar Bukola Saraki, asked the party’s supporters to vote massively for all candidates of the party in the next year’s election, saying the people can trust him and the party’s leadership.

He said: “I stood and fought for democracy, APC came and lied to you and now, you know the difference. It is time for Nigerians, starting from Kwara to kick out APC.
