The leaders, who spoke on Wednesday in Ilorin during the endorsement and declaration of Governor AbdulFattah Ahmed of Kwara State for a second term in office, said the said only panacea for a secured future for Nigeria is for the electorates to vote out Jonathan and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the 2015  general elections.

They urged the electorates to stand by their votes and demonstrate the power of the people by resisting attempts to manipulate the 2015 elections through the use of soldiers and police.

Leaders of the party present at the event included the three presidential aspirants of the party, General Mohammed Buhari, former Vice President Atiku Abubakar and Kano State Governor, Rabiu Kwankwanso.

Also in attendance was the National Leader of the party and former governor of Lagos State, Bola Tinubu, Speaker of the House of Representatives, Aminu Tambuwal and Senator Bukola Saraki.
