The Daura Zonal Chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Katsina state has reiterated its pledge to deliver 1 million votes for President Muhammadu Buhari and the State Governor, Alhaji Aminu Masari in the forthcoming 2019 presidential and governorship elections respectively.
This pledge was reechoed by the Zonal Vice Chairman of the APC in Daura, Malam Usman Ado-Oc, on Friday when he addressed thousands of party supporters during a stakeholders’ meeting.
Ado-Oc used the occasion to urge electorates to make judicious use of their voter cards by re-electing Buhari and Masari.
He added that APC as a disciplined political party would continue to sensitize its members through the use of convincing and cogent reasons.
He said Buhari and Masari deserved re-election considering the unprecedented performance recorded in their individual areas of jurisdiction.
He said the administration also deserved medals going by its numerous empowerment programmes through agriculture, trader moni, and the popular N-power programme.
He said the Federal Government empowerment programmes had provided jobs to millions of Nigerians especially school leavers and other able-bodied citizens.
The vice chairman also lauded the efforts of Masari’s administration especially its noble policies in the promotion of education and provision of infrastructure.
He said the Masari administration had introduced probity and accountability in the conduct of public administration, pointing out that the transformation was visible.
He said the administration had settled the backlog of inherited pension and gratuity of retired civil servants in the state and implemented promotion of thousands of those who deserved to be promoted to their next grade levels.
He described Masari as a workaholic whose administration had constructed 4,000km of roads, 500 additional schools and equipped them with teaching and learning materials.
He noted that the Katsina government had also recruited 4,000 additional teachers and engaged the services of 5,000 unemployed youths under its newly introduced empowerment programme called state power- S-power.
