From Esther Akaa, Lafia
The Director General, Campaign Council of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Nasarawa State, Mr Labaran Maku has urged the people of the state to vote for the PDP presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, and all the party’s candidates in the 2023 general elections.
Maku, a former Information Minister made the call on Wednesday during the inauguration of members of the PDP campaign committee council in the state, held at the party’s secretariat in Lafia.
According to him, the party was set to win the gubernatorial election in the state, calling on the people to vote the All Progressives Congress (APC) out of the seat in the forthcoming general election.
“Since PDP lost power, hunger and starvation began along with insecurity, unemployment and non payment of civil servants.
“In 2019, Governor Abdullahi Sule didn’t win the election. So, I am calling on the electorates to guide their Permanent Voter Cards because it is their power,” Maku said.
The DG noted that the ruling APC has done nothing to deserve another second term in office.
He also said that all the good projects executed in the state were projects done during PDP when his former boss Senator Abdullahi Adamu the current APC chairman was the governor of the state.
Earlier, the state PDP Chairman, Mr Francis Orogu said: “As campaigns have kick-started for the 2023 elections in earnest, our party and our candidates will remain committed to honest, clean, and issue-based engagements and turn around the fortunes of the party.”
