“We call on and charge all Fulbe Registered Associations across the country to collectively vote for Atiku Abubakar and Ifeanyi Okowa without any doubt come 2023.
“We also call and remind our members that; a vote for Atiku/Okowa reflects vote for the entire country as Wazirin Adamawa and His Excellency, Governor Ifeanyi Okowa are unifying force of all tribes scattered across Nigeria,” the statement said.
The coalition further reminded all its members and all progressive minded citizens to cast bloc votes for Atiku/Okowa which represents Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP) with collective sense of national recognition.
“The officials of both associations also enlightened and encouraged their members and all Nigerians with sense of collective destiny, peace and unity; that voting for Atiku/Okowa should not be seen as reflection of ethnic exercise, but for all Nigerians survival.
