Meanwhile, the newly elected chairmen of PDP in the 27 local government areas of Jigawa State have have been sworn in to office by the Board of Trustee (BoT) member and member of the National Executive Committee of the party, Alhaji Sule Lamido.

Speaking while inaugurating the PDP local government chairmen, the PDP NEC member as well as the member of PDP’s BoT expressed confidence that the party would take power at all levels in the country in 2023.

According to the ex-governor, “Nigerians will vote for the PDP in the 2023 general election because of the worsening state of insecurity, poverty and hunger citizens have been suffering from in the last five years.”

“What you see here shows that PDP is going to win the election, it is going solve the problem of Nigeria.

“So we should look at the deep problem we are in, we must make sure we put in the party that can restore Nigeria and restore our land, our trust, our stability, our economy, restore our safety.”

“There is no way you can run the country, human development if there is no peace,” he emphasized.

Lamido alleged that “the government of president Buhari has failed on its all campaign promises of security, comfort, peace and reduction of fuel price,” adding that instead the government and the party is in crises.

The PDP had conducted Local Government congresses across the 27 local government areas in the state in a peaceful and orderly manner.

Two representatives from the party National headquarters, Abuja, Barrister Isa Ahmed and Barrister Ogoama Lukpata monitored the process.
