Yusuf Suleiman, director-general of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Campaign Council in Sokoto, says the party remains the best for good governance in the State.

Mr Suleiman stated this at a stakeholders’ consultative meeting with members from Wurno and Gada local government areas on Saturday in Sokoto.

He said PDP would continue with the right policies in the state and proper solutions to address the present challenges in the country.

He noted that the antecedents of the party over the years spoke volumes of its capacity, competence and nobility.

“When our party held sway at the centre, we did not experience these indices like insecurity, hardship, economic woes, and the gradual collapse of key sectors that are gradually pointing to an almost failed state.

“The exorbitant cost of living and the challenges of insecurity that have seen many Nigerians killed innocently should convince every rational prospective voter to cast their vote for the PDP in 2023,” Mr Suleiman said.

He, therefore, urged the people, especially Sokoto residents, not to make the mistake of electing the wrong leaders during the elections.

The director-general said the governorship candidate of the party in the state, Sa’idu Umar, had the interest of the people at heart and urged the residents to rally behind him.

Earlier, State PDP chairman, Bello Goronyo, said the party initiated consultative meetings with stakeholders from local government areas to strengthen relationships among loyalists.

Mr Goronyo said party leaders were saddled with mobilising the state’s people to enthrone the next responsible government.

He said the meeting was aimed at mending fences, promoting understanding, and ensuring peaceful coexistence among party loyalists ahead of the 2023 elections.

He described the party candidates as competent in all sectors and urged the party members to work in the interest of the party’s success at all elective positions.

He noted that damage to the collective heritage and psyche was simply unprecedented and called on supporters to express their views and reservation during the periodic meetings.
