The Director General (DG), Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential and governorship campaign council in Nasarawa state, Labaran Maku has called on residents of the state to vote credible leaders in the forthcoming general elections, in order to enjoy dividends of democracy.

Maku, a former Minister of Information, made the call on Tuesday during the PDP statewide campaign flag-off ceremony held in Toto Local Government Area of the state

He decried the untold hardship citizens of the country were facing under the All Progressives Congress (APC) led government both at the national and state levels, citing high cost of food stuffs, high rate of unemployment, insecurity, among others.

He said: “We can all see how the APC government has failed us. They promised to bring a positive change to the country but instead of doing that, they brought suffering on all of us. The prices of food items in the market, the dollar exchange rate, even the price of petrol have all skyrocketed from how they were when the PDP was in government.

“There are also issues of kidnapping, banditry and other security threats. We cannot continue like this.

“In 2023, we should vote for only credible leaders who we can hold accountable, and I can assure you that the candidates of the Peoples Democratic Party are ready to serve. So, you all should give them your votes in order to ensure the speedy growth and development of our dear Nasarawa state.

“On December 8, 2022, our presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar will be coming to Lafia, the state capital. I am also urging everyone of us who have been yearning for a better Nigeria, to come out en mass and welcome him to the state. We believe in his leadership qualities and by God’s grace, he will be our next president in 2023.”

He, assured that if the candidates of the PDP emerge victorious in the 2023 general elections, the party would ensure prosperity for all citizens of the country.

Also speaking, the PDP governorship candidate in the state, David Ombugadu, promised to ensure rapid development across the 13 local government areas of the state if given the mandate, come 2023.

“I have great plans for this state. All I need is your support in the coming governorship election. Our dear state is lacking behind in all sectors. I will develop the 13 LGAs if I am given the opportunity. So, give me your votes in 2023 and I promise not to disappoint you,” he stated.

On his part, the state PDP Chairman, Francis Orogu, expressed gratitude to stakeholders and residents of Toto LGA for always supporting the party.

He assured that all promises made to the people will be fulfilled if candidates of the party are elected.
