2023: PDP Will Defeat APC In Katsina – Lado

Sen. Yakubu Lado Danmarke, the gubernatorial candidate of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in Katsina State, has expressed confidence that his party would defeat the ruling All Progressive Congress (APC) in the forthcoming general elections in the state.

Lado, made this assertion on Sunday at the inauguration of the campaign committee of PDP’s presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, in Katsina.

According to him, the underperformance of the ruling APC at both state and national levels has greatly boosted the chances of the PDP in the coming polls.

“People have been impoverished by the APC and many of them were already crying for an alternative in governance, which the PDP is poised to exhibit”.

He added, “the APC in the state had over the years collected loans worth billions of naira and has nothing tangible to show in the socio-economic development status of the state”.

Similarly, billions of naira were being owed to pensioners by the APC, even as it has invested huge amounts in the water sector with no commensurate projects to show in the state.

Lado said if elected, his government would give priority to agriculture, which is the mainstay of the state’s economy, as well as quality investment in the water sector and youth empowerment.

He however dismissed allegations that the PDP in the state was not united, adding that the party would work to ensure it ousts the APC and get to form government in the state.

He also warned the electorate not to fall for the trick of collecting N1,000 or related amounts from the ruling party so that they cast their votes for its candidates.

“The condition the APC has put many Nigerians was more than enough reason to vote them out during the 2023 polls”, he maintained.

“From all indications, and by the grace of God, the PDP is confident that it would go very far in the coming elections, in all elective positions in the state”, Lado concluded.

To the membership of the Campaign Council, he urged them to unite and work assiduously to ensure victory for the PDP in all the elective positions.

Senator Umar Ibrahim Tsauri, the PDP Campaign Council Chairman, in his remarks, assured of the council’s readiness to hit the ground running to ensure that the PDP forms government at all levels.

Alhaji Mustapha Muhammad Inuwa, the Campaigns Director General of the party, on his part, called on women and the youths to join forces with him to enable the PDP to succeed in their task of flushing out the ruling All Progressive Congress APC, in the state and the national levels.
