Elections: Party success hinges on leaders’ ability to manage crisis -Gov’s Aide 

Alhaji Faruq Musa-Yaro, the Personal Assistant (PA) to Gov. Atiku Bagudu of Kebbi State, has said that success of any political party at polls solidly relied on leaders’ ability to mend broken minds.


He made the plea during the flagg-off of All Progressive Congress (APC) Chairmanship and Councillorship campaign for Birnin Kebbi Local Government Area held in Birnin Kebbi, the state capital on Thursday.
The Kebbi State Independent Electoral Commission (KSIEC) had in Nov. 2021 fixed Feb. 5, 2022 as the day for Chairmanship and Councillorship elections across the state.
Musa-Yaro stressed the need for unity amongst the party members towards an overwhelming victory during the forthcoming election.


The governor’s aide said the call became imperative in view of the fact that the APC administration in the state led by Gov. Bagudu had put a smile on the faces of Kebbi State people through execution of laudable projects.
According to him, Bagudu administration has done all that is needed to the people of Kebbi State particularly Birnin Kebbi, hence, they have no reason not to vote for the party.


“As a people, the power is in your hands, you have the ultimate power to choose who to lead you. I urge you to exercise your franchise wisely by voting APC in view of the laudable achievements recorded by His Excellency, Sen. Abubakar Atiku Bagudu.

“I want to use this medium to inform you that the strong opposition party (PDP) in the state has no candidate for Birnin Kebbi Local Government Chairmanship, because the running mate of PDP candidate has defected to APC.
“Going by electoral law, PDP has no candidate as far as this election is concerned,” he said.


Flagging off the campaign, Alhaji Bello Dantani, former Deputy Governor of Kebbi State and former member House of Representatives, encouraged the people of the local government to stand firm and exercise their franchise.
Dantani called on the people to rally round all the APC candidates to pave way for a landslide victory at polls. 


In a brief remark, the running mate to PDP Chairmanship candidate in the forthcoming LG elections, Alhaji Faruqu Liman declared that he had defected to APC in view of the laudable achievements recorded by the present governor of the state.


He said: “I want to use this medium to inform this gathering that I have resigned my position as the running mate of PDP candidate vying for Chairmanship position in Birnin Kebbi Local Government and I have joined APC.”
