The National Co-ordinator used the opportunity to share the vision behind the AMV and the role it is expected to play in ensuring the presidential candidate of the PDP is successful in the 2019 elections.
The National Secretary of the Organization in his own remark stated that the organization encompasses all the professionals in the medical field geared towards the sole aim of ensuring the success of the PDP in the forth-coming elections.

AMV plans to use strategies like doctor-to-patient relationship to canvass vote for Atiku Abubakar.
