Senator Dino Melaye has been appointed by the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) as its presidential campaign council spokeman.

PDP announced Melaye’s appointment at the inauguration of its presidential campaign council in Abuja.

Responding on his appointment, Melaye said, “Thank you, PDP for my appointment as Director in charge of Civil Societies/ NGO’S and Campaign Spokesperson in the PDP Presidential Campaign. We shall usually overcome. Light will always rejoice over darkness. Power to the People.”

The council which is headed by Senate president Bukola Saraki has a mandate to ensure PDP’s presidential candidate and former vice president Atiku Abubakar unseats incumbent president Muhammadu Buhari.

PDP’s national chairman, Uche Secondus expressed optimism said he is optimistic in council’s ability to ensure its return to power after its 16 years rule was halted by Buhari’s election in 2015.

“I am confident that this assemblage of capable, courageous and patriotic men and women would lead us successfully to realize this objective of winning the 2019 general elections in order to rescue our dear country from the hands of the failed APC government,” Secondus said.

According to him, “If you meet every day with optimism if you confront every obstacle with determination; if you refuse to give up; if you never quit; if you approach every challenge with confidence and pride, no dream would be beyond your reach.”
