– I’ll rescue Katsina from APC’s lack of direction, misrule ― Senator Lado
– Only me can defeat APC in Katsina – Senator Lado boosts
Senator Yakubu Lado has accused the All Progressive Congress (APC) administration in Katsina state of failure and has vowed to retrieve it and set it back on the path of progress and prosperity, The Tribune reports.
Speaking to journalists at the weekend in Abuja moments after submitting his expression of interest and nomination forms to vie for the governorship ticket of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), he said he was on a mission to rescue the state from the lack of direction the ruling party has subjected the it to in the last three and half years.
He said: “APC has failed. It has not only failed but it has set back Katsina state over several decades. Under the previous PDP government in Katsina, it was a progressive state with emphasis on human capital development and infrastructure.
“But look at what we have today. The government of APC has eroded all the gains of the last administrations and replaced them with hunger and starvation.
“Today, all the important sectors, be it health, education, agriculture, among others are suffering because the present government lacks the initiative to provide proper leadership.
“That’s why the people are asking for me to come and save the state. They believe I have the capacity to bring Katsina back on the right course.“
Lado, who represented Katsina South Senatorial District, in the Senate between 2011 and 205, expressed confidence that he would secure the ticket of the PDP in the forthcoming primary, saying that he was best placed to return Katsina state to the party which governed it for 16 years.
“I can assure you that if I get the ticket, PDP will recapture Katsina and bring the good old days back to our people,” he declared.
