The candidates also deliberated how to avoid violating the electoral laws.
The party chairman told the attendees to be wary of the guidelines concerning campaigns, including contents of the campaigns and on the need to follow the timetable issued by the Independent National Electoral Commission.
Liti stated, “Now that Nigerians have rejected the ruling party, the All Progressives Congress at the national and the state levels and also the Peoples Democratic Party, our party ,the NNPP is best placed to win the general elections. My advice is that we should tidy up our end and be mindful of the various electoral laws, particularly those guiding campaigns and the contents of the campaigns.
‘’We should follow the INEC timetable for campaigns, we should also engage on issue-based campaigns. With the calibre of our candidates and members including new members from the APC and the PDP ,we shall have a good showing in the elections, Masha Allah.”
