APC fulfilled most campaign promises to Nigerians, Gov Badaru claims
The All Progressives Congress (APC) says it has fulfilled most of the campaign promises made to the people of Jigawa since 2015 and solicited more support.
Governor Muhammadu Badaru stated this on Sunday while inaugurating the APC 2023 gubernatorial campaign in Hadejia, the headquarters of the Hadejia local government area.
He said his administration had executed viable projects and programmes in the state, from the grassroots to urban centres.
According to him, the object of the rally is to formally showcase the governorship and other candidates of the party from the zone to the people of the state.
The governor said that there were indications that APC could retain power both at the state and federal levels because of the achievements made by the party across all the sectors.
Mr Badaru said that the turnout of people at the rally was a clear demonstration of the party’s acceptability in the state and appreciation of the democratic dividends it had brought to the people.
The governor called on the electorates to campaign for the party’s candidates at all levels to enable it to retain power for continuity.
The APC’s governorship flag bearer Umar Namadi expressed his readiness to pilot the affairs of the state with a keen interest in serving his people if elected in 2023.
Mr Namadi, also the incumbent deputy governor of the state, said the APC administration had done a lot of projects that have a direct bearing on the lives of the commoners who are in the majority in the state.
The governorship hopeful said the number of the new projects and the rehabilitated ones across the sectors executed under the Badaru-led administration could not be overemphasised.
He, however, assured the teeming APC supporters of his determination to continue to invest in meaningful developmental programmes and projects if given the mandate.
Also, a former senator Ubale Shitu commended the people of the state for supporting the party, adding that it proved APC’s strength above the opposition parties.
“This is a clear message for the opposition parties and the PDP to note that the majority of the people in Jigawa are not with them,” he said.
