From Agaju Madugba, Katsina
Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar, has assured the people of Zamfara State that, “rescue is on the way,” over the seeming endless state of insecurity in the area.
Atiku said that he would work to ensure that the Zamfara State PDP gubernatorial candidate, Dr. Dauda Lawal, wins the 2023 general elections.
A press statement from the Daudu Lawal campaign office in Gusua said that Atiku spoke on Wednesday when the PDP candidate visited the former Vice President in his Abuja residence.
The statement quoted Atiku as saying that the only way to rescue and rebuild Zamfara is by voting out the current All Progressives Congress (APC) leadership during the 2023 general elections.
The statement said, “in order to achieve that, there is the need for having a united PDP which will be formidable enough to face any opposition no matter how difficult it may be.
“The best thing to do for the people of Zamfara State is to bring about peace, secure the farms, and provide businesses.
“But the situation now is otherwise. We must unseat the APC to rescue and rebuild the state and the country. PDP administration will also resuscitate the textile industry.
“Earlier, Dauda, a former First Bank Executive Director, explained that he led PDP stakeholders and APC stalwarts who decamped to the PDP, to congratulate Atiku on his victory at the party primaries.
“Lawal expressed confidence that Nigerians are now comfortable with the PDP having felt the brunt of the bad governance of the ruling All Progressive Congress.
“Getting these stalwarts is a big harvest for PDP in Zamfara state, considering the calibre, status, and political value of the persons who left the APC.”
Among the Zamfara State APC stalwarts received by Atiku Abubakar are Alhaji Salihu Mai Buhu Gummi, Alhaji Sahabi Liman Kaura, Alhaji Illili Bakura, Engr. Garba Ahmad Yandi, Hon. Ikra Bilbis, Dr. Na’Allah Isa Mayana, Hon. Mukhtar Lugga, among others.
