From Femi Oyelola, Kaduna
A former Senator representing the Southern Kaduna Senatorial District, Haruna Zego Azziz has purchased the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) gubernatorial nomination form to slug it out with the incumbent Governor Alhaji Murktar Ramallan Yero, making him the first member of PDP to pick the nomination form after the governor.
Speaking to the media in Kaduna yesterday, Senator Azziz said the dawn of change is upon the people of the state and they now have the unique opportunity to reach for this change through the ballot box as they prepare to vote in the forth coming 2015 general elections.
“It is my intention to take a stance for the Kaduna State I love and believe can attain true greatness but only if we are ready to make an attitudinal change. This change has to begin within each and every one of us and it starts with the realignment of our thoughts and
actions for the greater good of the collective rather than the individual.
“I believe I can be that catalyst for change and that is why I am here today to demonstrate it by picking up this expression of interest form which is a formal indication of my intention to serve the people through the exalted, yet noble office of the Governor of Kaduna State.”
Senator Aziz used the occasion to debunked the allegation that PDP in Kaduna State is gone, saying some people might have let down the people on the name of the party but that is not to push the party aside in the state.
“Never again shall a PDP led government in this state be called ‘grossly incompetent, clueless and a non-performing government which is making people poor’. Our party has no business with poverty and this can be seen from the giant transformational strides of President Goodluck Jonathan with able support from our own son, Vice President
Namadi Sambo in whom we proud.
“Let us go back home today, dust off our voters registration cards or go and collect it from the polling unit if you haven’t done, so as to arm your selves for this battle for which we are assured of victory by the grace of God almighty for I am tested, tried and ready to lead our people and party to victory” Aziz said.
