Vice-President, Arc Mohammed Namadi Sambo, has boasted that President Goodluck Jonathan would get more than two million votes from Kaduna state owing to the overwhelming support the ruling Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) is enjoying in that state.
According to a statement, signed on behalf of his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Umar Sani by SS Usara, the Vice President expressed the hope on Sunday during a unity and family meeting of the Kaduna chapter of the PDP, which held at the Hassan Usman Katsina House, Kawo, Kaduna.
Sambo also said he expected hundred per cent victory for the party’s candidates in other elective posts including that of the governor.
According to him “Kaduna State PDP is the same and one strong family, and I am happy for the promise they have kept and for the promise they have made to us, that Insha Allah, PDP is Kaduna State and Kaduna State is PDP, and PDP will win the elections come 2015.
“It is only PDP, today in Nigeria, that has its presence in the state, local government, ward and polling unit level. This representation is full and strong all over the federation,” he stressed.
Sambo expressed gratitude of President Jonathan to Kaduna PDP for their support during the recently conducted National convention, adding that the President was also delighted with the rancor free primary held in the state for all electives posts.
In his remark, Kaduna state governor, Alhaji Mukhtar Ramalan Yero, said at the state level they have had fruitful discussions with all those that participated in the primary.
