Adamawa LG poll: We’ll sweep all chairmanship positions, PDP vows

The People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in Adamawa has vowed to clinch all the chairmanship positions across the 21 Local Government Areas in the state.

Mr Tahir Shehu, state chairman of the party made the vow before newsmen in Yola.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), reports that the Adamawa Independent Electoral Commission (ADSIEC), has scheduled July 13 for the conduct of the local government councils elections in the state.

Shehu said that the party was gender sensitive and had supporters at the grassroots and in the National Assembly.

“PDP is rooted in Adamawa, we have three senators, seven out of eight members of the House of Representatives and we are ruling the state for the second term.

“And also PDP is gender sensitive that is why our deputy governor is a female”, he said.

According to him, if women were entrusted they are honest and can deliver, and that i why they are the highest when it comes to vote.

He added that the present administration in the state was also providing dividends of democracy for all irrespective of political differences.

He further congratulated residents of the state and Nigerians at large for the 25 years of uninterrupted democracy.

He noted that within the last 25 years, Nigeria had recorded lots of development in the area of health, education, transportation and other infrastructural development among others.

APC SUPPORT GROUPS RALLY ROUND PAUL CHUKWUMA

The members of the APC Support Groups family have thrown their weight behind a Frontline pillar of the All Progressives Congress in Anambra State, Sir Paul Chukwuma in the build up to the race for the Anambra State governorship election.
The Convener of the Amalgamated APC Support Groups Think Tank and leader of the Progressive Support Groups Forum, Dr. AK Peters made this declaration in Abuja on the heels of the fake news of the purported arrest and detaintion of Sir Paul Chukwuma by the Independent Corrupt Practices and related offences Commission ICPC.
In a release signed by Dr. AK Peters and Ustaz Bashir Yahaya, the Secretary of the Think Tank on Friday, the APC Support Groups Leaders condemned the fear and sheer desperation of failed and expired politicians who see Paul Chukwuma as a major threat to their political future.
The release reads in parts, ” Anambra State needs to be rescued from the clutches of bad governance and misrule of APGA and Sir Paul Chukwuma is right man for the job”.

Peters further stated that Paul Chukwuma is a grassroot man, a loyal party man, a motivator of the youths, a philanthropist, mobilizer, and a good Christian who has the fear of God and built the structure of the APC in Anambra State.
He emphasized that those who have suddenly realized that they have failed the people in the past are resorting to campaign of calumny and spreading fake news to smear the good name and character of the APC hopeful for the Anambra State governorship election.

The APC Support Groups have decided to drum support for only true party members like Sir Paul Chukwuma, the Statement said.

He called on all party members to work for him as he is the only person that has all it takes to defeat APGA and enthrone APC in the state.
