Green Party of Nigeria (GPN) House of Representatives aspirant, Honourable Sani Abdulkadir (Dakaci), has said that his party holds the keys to solutions of Nigeria’s problems.
He expressed this at a Sallah get together organised for party faithful at his residence on Saturday, which saw members from the 12 wards of Igabi Local Government Area of Kaduna State in attendance.
The gathering turned out to a political rally that saw thousands of members of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) decamp to GPN.
He explained that the meeting was to socialize and get together to celebrate the Eid-el Fitr, even as he prayed for Allah’s blessing from the Ramadan sacrifice.
“This present government has failed. No light, no water, no food, they keep telling us to be patient. Green Party is the solution to Nigeria’s problems,” he declared.
Speaking further, he said that right now, Igabi, which is the third largest local government in the country, has no adequate representative in the House of Representatives.
“The present member representing us is not heard, he is not been felt, he is there as if he is not there. Is that what we want?”, he queried, with the crowd responding “No.”
He went on to say that Igabi has resources that can cater for Kaduna State if judiciously utilized through agriculture.
A guest, Alhaji Ibrahim Adamu, said that the youth are their own problem.
“The problem we have as youth is that we don’t like each other. I have been seeing Dakaci on Social Media. When we first met, I told him I am a member of the ruling APC but because of him, I am today moving to GPN with thousands of my supporters.
“We have to stand and support him, so that we get the desired change,” he appealed.
In his remarks, the Vice Chairman of GPN Kaduna State, Alhaji Abubakar Suleiman, said that the party is youth friendly, adding that someone like him has the heart to empower youth.
“He is not the type that goes sharing money to political thugs to hack people down. He empowers people to be self reliant so they can empower others,” he added.
In her remarks, Aunty Hadiza Useni, who is the Women Leader of GPN, Rigasa Ward, said she moved to the party because of the aspirant.
She explained that the impunity in the APC led to the decamping of its members in Igabi to the GPN, which, according to her, is a true democratic party.
