Sokoto State Peoples Democratic Party. Governorship Candidate, Mallam Saidu Umar FCNA (Mallam Ubandoma Sokoto) has received a massive endorsement from residents of the largest ward in Sokoto state, ‘Waziri B ward’.
Umar who was in the area on Sunday for a book launch organised by the Waziri B Youth Solidarity for Ubandoma/Sagir Door 2 Door Campaign, was received by cheering residents who trooped out enmasse as his motorcade drove along the precincts of Bazzah to the heart of the contiguous Gidadawa area.
Basking in the euphoria of the rousing welcome, Umar stated that he was not surprised by the spontaneous turnout of people, because historically Waziri B ward was well known to always identify with the good side of politics in the state.
He assured residents that Sokoto State under his watch if given the mandate, will consolidates on the gains of the present administration.
He reiterated that if voted into power, his administration would ensure that women and youths were carried along in different spheres of lives. “Youth and women will be included in governance and party affairs. Women and youth will benefit through empowerment projects and skills acquisition programmes that will be initiated across the state.”
On education, Mallam Ubandoma said his administration will continue with the feat recorded by the Governor Aminu Waziri Tambuwal administration. He promised to invest more in the sector to meet the demands and needs of future generations.
He averred that the challenges were, God willing, surmountable as his joint ticket with Hon Sagir Attahiru Bafarawa had all its takes to move Sokoto forward.
