According to him, the PDP was aware that since the emergence of Abubakar as its Presidential candidate, the party had continued to receive solidarity from across board.
These include, he said, hosts of professional bodies, labour unions, major socio-cultural groups, religious bodies, traditional institutions, student groups and international organisations.
