2019: Zaria stand still as PDP campaign hits ancient city

Share This

From: Femi Oyelola, kaduna

Kaduna State Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) campaign, yesterday over flooded the ancient city of Zaria as thousands of party members and supporters of Hon. Isa Ashiru, its 2019 gubernatorial candidate and other candidates of the party, took over major roads of the city in exultant celebration of the man they believed will rescue the state from it’s present predicaments.
The campaign tour to Zaria, kicked off in Palladan, Sabon Gari, Local Government Area (LGA), which hosts the famous Ahmadu Bello University (ABU), Nigeria School of Aviation, Zaria among others
The supporter, comprising members of all Nigerian ethnic groups resident in Zaria all dressed in their traditional attires, mixed up with their Hausa and Fulani hosts as they danced to specially made songs and heavy music of alluring percussion extolling the goodness of the PDP and Ashiru including his running mate, Hon. Sunday Marshal Katung.
Meanwhile, Ashiru and Senator Suleiman Hunkuyi (PDP, Kaduna North Senatorial District), who is also seeking re-election under the PDP and other candidates of the party, where on courtesy calls to traditional leaders in the LGA and ended up at the Ahmadu Bello Teaching Hospital, Shika, where they briefly met some patients.
When they arrived the venue of the campaign rally the throng welcomed them with roaring ovation and ululation as the loud speaker blared, *“Ahiru, your mere name scares them to hell”*translated from Hausa.
In his remark Senator Ahmed Makarfi, former governor of Kaduna State, and former National Chairman, Caretaker Committee of the PDP said: “Look all around you today, whatever development you see, was the handiwork of the PDP,” he told the cheering crowd.
“The Zaria Water work, township roads, schools and hospitals were built by us, or their contracts awarded before the PDP lost the state in 2015. They can’t even complete what we left behind.
“They said the PDP stole. But you can see what we have done. They say they are not stealing, but where is the money, where are the projects?,” and the crowd answered in an angry Babel of indiscernible responses at the ruling party.
“Ashiru was the Chairman, Appropriation Committee of Kaduna State House of Assembly (KDHA) for 8 years I was governor. So, all the portable water supply to Sabon Gari and environs, all the rural electricity, Primary Health Care Centres (PHCs), farming inputs and the rest were done by the approvals of his committee. So he knows all the areas, the people and the challenges. He shall come to replicate them, as governor when you vote him to power,” he said.
“He will not sack people from work, and will not insult our leaders,” he added.
Kaduna State Chairman of the PDP, Chief Felix Hassan Hyat, told the crowd that the deceit of the ruling party has been uncovered, and asked that everyone got his Permanent Voting Card (PVC) and vote out the All Progressive Congress (APC) from the Presidency, governorship, the National and State House of Assembly.
