The former minister, who said she would be the first woman to contest the position added, ”I believe it will signal many other changes to come in our party and country.

“It will begin to send the messages that our party is prepared to break new grounds, continue to make progress and that men and women alike will at last serve this country, dedicate their lives to a better and more inclusive future,“ she said.

Ciroma pledged to work with party leaders to mobilise support required to ensure that PDP states lost in 2015 were all reclaimed.

“The 2023 election is a task that must be accomplished, and we need a winning formula, knowing the difficulties Nigerians are now faced with,” she added.

Ologunagba, from Ondo State, pledged that if elected, he would partner with the media to “retrieve and restore” the country through effective communications to Nigerians.
