“After two and a half years after they came into power, APC is becoming scared of their shadow. They have become too afraid to hold an election convention after the first convention they had that brought the executives. Fear is the reason why APC is unable to hold its convention.”
He declared that the PDP is ready to take over power in 2019 adding that the people now understands the difference between both parties.
The former Governor stated that it would be easy for the PDP to take over in Niger state as the people have seen that the PDP government is much better than any other government in the state.
“2019 will be the year of the PDP. We will not deceive the people, we will ensure that the people are given their right; we will ensure that no Nigerlite goes to bed hungry. We will not receive the people. PDP remains strong in Niger state. ”
The Niger state PDP Chairman, Barrister Tanko Beji emphasized on the importance of Permanent Voters Card (PVC) calling on any member who have not registered to do so before it is too late.
“It is with PVC that we can think of outweighing the party in power. PVC is very important. Please go and registered to that we can change the change.”
Beji expressed optimism over the victory of the party in 2019 adding that the people can now testify the PDP government remains the best.
