From Ibrahim Sidi, Gusau
The governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Zamfara State, Alhaji Mahmud Shinkafi has said the voters votes will count in the 2015 election and decides who will governed them, saying any attempt to go against the will of the people is an invitation to chaos.
He stated this while speaking to the media in his residence in Kaduna yesterday.
Alhaji Shinkafi warned that any person or political party thinking of rigging the elections should have a re-think because the price for such action will be too much for the country to bear.
“Let me say this for record purpose, that the 2015 elections are coming at the time when Nigerians are aware that their votes can make or maimed them and they are the best judge to determine their future.
“Whosoever tries to take that right from them can be assured of top resistance. Therefore there is nothing like rigging comes 2015.
“Look at what happened at the APC Presidential primary, we are aware that some people have money to spread around but you and I know that General Muhammadu Buhari didn’t have such money but he emerged the party presidential flag bearer because the majority trusted him. This is the trend of what will happen comes 2015. Nigerians would not only vote but will ensure that their votes count” he said
The PDP governorship candidate warned that it is time that the country diversifies its economy especially in the face of dwindling price of oil at the international market.
“We have been depending on oil for long, but we know that oil cannot last forever but our land will always be there for cultivation.
“In Zamfara State we are blessed with lots of solid minerals and when we take the leadership of the state in 2015 we are going to focus on developing the sectors not only for increasing our internally revenue but making Zamfara the industrial center of the north”.
