Presidential candidate of the People’s Trust (PT) party, Mr. Gbenga Olawepo-Hashim, is set to formally launch his campaign for the presidential election on Saturday, January 12, in Abuja.
Thousands of members of PT have begun to converge on Abuja to participate in the launch, ahead of the event scheduled for Old Parade Ground in Garki Area 10, FCT.
The campaign, according to a statement made available to journalists in Kaduna by his chief press secretary, Hassan Ibrahim, will mark Olawepo-Hashim’s final push in the homestretch to the scheduled February 16 presidential poll.
Preparatory to the event, presidential aspirants and candidates of other political parties, who had earlier stepped down for the PT’s presidential candidate, are already in Abuja to rally support of their supporters for him.
