From Ahmad Mohammed, Bauchi
The Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Bauchi State, Hamza Akoshe Akuyam, has cautioned Nigerians against choosing inexperience and new politicians for elective positions without understanding their competency, credibility and leadership experiences.
Akuyam stated this yesterday in Bauchi when he received the Former Jigawa State Governor, one of the PDP presidential aspirants in Bauchi.
He said “in politics today the main issue of concern is how new people are joining Politics fresh just to contest election, they did not hold any position from ward to local government and then to state, zonal and national level, they have no knowledge of leadership, they don’t know what is democracy, they only aspire for election and win which makes them to look like superior to their parties and the people that elected them”.
He suggested that political parties should do something that will reverse the trend and ensure that only genuine politicians who are experience, credible and competent are allowed to contest elective position on their platforms.
The PDP Chairman, who was represented by the State Vice chairman of the Party, Haruna Musa Shitu, accused the APC administration of increasing the prices of everything that will improve the living standard of common man, which makes essentials commodities inaccessible to the masses.
“Even when you access it, you access it with lots of hardship and difficulty, the price of pilgrimage rose from 600,000 to 1.5million, bag of rice from N7,000 during PDP to N18,000, changing naira with dollar rose from N150 to N360, price of petrol from N97 to 145 to mention just a few”, he said.
He said Lamido has all it takes to be President of Nigeria, considering his track records and the positions he held and his contributions towards the development of the country and appealed to Nigerians to vote for PDP in the next General election to enable genuine politicians provide them with easy access to their daily needs.
Also, the Director General of Lamido Campaign Organisation, MusaIlanoyi, and State Coordinator of Sule Lamido Campaign Organisation, Alhaji Bappah Haruna Disina, extoled Lamido’s qualities, including his simplicity, detribalize Nigerian, generosity, open door policy,
commitment to the Nigerian project and described him as true son of Nigeria and PDP who is committed to the projects that will bring development in all aspect of lives of Nigerians.
In his remarks, Sule Lamido pledged to restore the lost values of Nigeria and advised youths to desist from thuggery, moral decadence and prepare to become the good leaders of tomorrow.
