Sokoto 2023: APC Governorship Candidate Unfolds 8-Point Agenda


The All Progrossives Congress (APC) gubernatorial candidate in Sokoto State, Hon. Ahmed Aliyu Sokoto, has unfolded his eight-point agenda for the electorate if elected into office.

Aliyu made this known while addressing an unprecedented crowd, who converged for the flag-off of the statewide campaign rally in the State.

The 8-point agenda, according to him include Security, Agriculture, Rural development, Water supply, Health care, education, infrastructural development, as well as Empowerment programme.

This, he added is addition to the earlier pledge of making the local Government councils autonomous.

Aliyu said the 8-point agenda is aimed at ensuring a new Sokoto State that can compete favourably with other states in all areas of development.

“The issue of insecurity bedevilling parts of our dear state is a thing of serious concern to us, be rest assured that if elected into office, we will use all our energy and available resources to end banditry.

“Our State is known as an agrarian community with a sizeable number of its population practicing one form of agriculture or the other as a means of livelihood, unfortunately many peasants now cannot go to farms for the fear of being abducted”, Aliyu averred.

Alhaji Aliyu also pledged to renovate all the shops affected by an inferno that ravaged the Sokoto central market some years ago.

He expressed dismay over the way the present administration in the state is showing no interest on issues that affect traders in the state.

“It’s been years now since our market was gutted by fire with quite a number of shops razed down and yet government could not repair them as a result of which trades were forced to display their wares by the road side”, he added.

He also assured traders of an enabling environment to do their business unhindered.

In his address, the minister of police affairs who is also the Director General of the campaign council, Muhammadu Maigari Dingyadi said the party will give Sokoto the leadership it deserves and appealed to people to vote for the party’s candidates at all levels.

Dingyadi underscored the contributions of APC to the development of Nigeria and expressed optimism that the gesture would be sustained.

In his goodwill message, Abdulkadir Daniya, who represented Alhaji Umarun Kwabo, PDP chieftain, who decamped to APC charged people of the state to come out en masse to vote APC in the forthcoming election.

This, according to him, has become necessary in order to save the state from the shackles of poverty ravaging it in recent years.

“It’s disheartening to see that our state has recently been topping the list of the poorest states in the federation”Daniya added

This why we need to put head together to change the current system for lack of performance”he has said

Other speakers at the rally stressed the need for APC supporters to redouble efforts in sensitizing people on the need to vote for APC.

The party leader in the state, Senator Aliyu Magatakarda Wamakko formally presented APC’s governorship candidate Ahmed Aliyu Sokoto,his running mate, Hon. Idris Muhammad Gobir, as well as those vying for state and national assembly seats to the crowd.
