Tinubu appealed to his supporters to remain united and peaceful, stating that even though “some people are very angry, we must come together and salvage the nation using our PVCs”.

“If voted into power, we will make sure that we replace violence and poverty with peace and agricultural machinery, as well as manage the nation’s economy to prosperity,” he added.

Meanwhile, no fewer than two persons were reported injured at the Eagle Square, the venue of the rally of the All Progressives Congress, in the Federal Capital Territory on Saturday.

The second victim allegedly sustained a fracture while scrambling for a plate of food at the venue.

Meanwhile, the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Atiku Abubakar, has asked the people of Abia State not to be distracted by religion or ethnicity in choosing a leader in the February 25 polls.

He stated this on Saturday at his rally held in Umuahia, the state capital.

The former vice president said, “I appeal to you not to be distracted by other political parties that may be playing either the religious or ethnic card. In the PDP, we have no religious or ethnic card, we play only Nigeria card.”
