A former governor of Katsina state, Ibrahim Shema, has urged the people of the state to massively vote for candidates of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) at all levels in the forthcoming general elections.
“We should come out en mass to vote for PDP candidates at all levels. Whatever they give you collect it and vote for PDP candidate who loves you,” he said.
In his remarks, the Katsina PDP governorship candidate, Senator Yakubu Lado Danmarke, said he would make security his top priority, if elected. “We are going to focus attention and address insecurity during the first 100 days of my administration,” he said.
Danmarke also said that his government would abolish payment of school fees, provide free healthcare, almajiri feeding programme and foreign scholarships to the state students. He further said that his administration would make fertilizers available and affordable to farmers in the state, if elected. He also pledged to implement pension scheme for retirees in the state. The governorship candidate said he had a lot of plans for youth and women empowerment to make them self reliant. “We need your support and commitment to be able to defeat the APC at all levels during the elections,” he said.
Flags were presented to the governorship candidate, three Senatorial, House of Representatives and State assembly candidates at the event. The campaign was attended by thousands of party supporters from across the state.
