Our candidate will empower women, youths in Nasarawa, says PDP




The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Karu Local Government Area, Nasarawa State, says its governorship candidate will empower women, youths and bring positive transformation to the state.

The PDP Deputy Chairman in Karu Local Government, Mr Mustapha Sani, made this known in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on the sideline of the party’s rally in New Nyanya, Karu on Sunday.

Sani appealed to all eligible voters to come out in large numbers and vote for the governorship candidate of the PDP in the state, Mr David Umbugadu, on March 11.

He said there were about 350,000 voters in the area, adding that the residents should come out and vote for PDP so that things would change for good.

“If you look at Nasarawa State since 1999, all the projects on ground that you can still see today are legacies of the PDP. APC government since 2011 or so did not add anything.

”The only thing it did is to change the colour of our legacies to another colour. This is what they have been doing for the past 12 years in the state.

“So, we have what it takes to bring positive change to the state. Though APC has been trying to destroy our legacies, but they cannot because the people are witnesses to our legacies,” Sani said.

He further said that the PDP was confident that the March 11 election would be in its favour.

”Check the records, if not for Labour Party Tsunami, PDP has been winning in Nasarawa State,” he added.

Mrs Faith Musa, the PDP Women Leader in Nasarawa West zone, said the party was hopeful of landslide victory in the March 11 election.

“I appeal to all women and youths not to give up, PDP has what it takes to win in the election and bring good development to Nasarawa State,” she said.


Musa added that Umbugadu, had empowerment in his blood and by the grace of God, he would perform more when elected governor of the state.

I’ll Turn Ondo Into Another Lagos, Says Wale Akinterinwa Ahead Of APC Primaries




Wale Akinterinwa, a governorship hopeful on the platform of All Progressives Congress (APC), says he will turn Ondo into another Lagos, the country’s commercial capital, if elected governor.

The Ondo APC governorship primary election is scheduled for April 20 while the state-wide election will be held on November 16.

Speaking during his official declaration at the ruling party’s secretariat in Akure, the state capital, on Tuesday, Akinterinwa said he will make Ondo an industrialised state.

The governorship hopeful who had worked in Lagos civil service, said he would utilise the natural resources in the state to attract investments.

“We will turn Ondo into another Lagos state in terms of development because we have what it takes, in terms of coast. We must ensure that the port comes alive and that will be a game changer,” Akinterinwa said.


“But, beyond that, we also have the landmass and ought to be an agrarian state. So, we are going to take agriculture to the next level while we encourage and support the local farmers.

“We will also attract investors who will invest in agriculture so that we will be exporting finished products. We will not just be producing for the table but we will be producing for export.”

On security, Akinterinwa said his economic initiatives would get most youth employed and lead to reduction in the rate of insecurity in the state.

“For security, part of our challenges today is because today is because we have many unemployed youths. So, Amotekun founded by our late governor, Oluwarotimi Akeredolu and other South West governors will be strengthened so that with appropriate security in place, we can have development,” he said.
