The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP)’s Candidate for Kaduna Central Senatorial Zone in the 2023 polls, Mr. Lawal Adamu Usman has been described as a great and patriotic Nigerian, who would take the people of Zone Two and Kaduna State to a greater level.
Comrade Ovyeh Ishaya Alaku, the Convener of Mr. LA Support Group, made the remark in a chat with journalists on Thursday at his office in Sabon Tasha, Kaduna, assuring that the group would canvass for no fewer than 800,000 votes for their principal.
Comrade Alaku who was reacting to the news that the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has listed Mr.Lawal Adamu Usman as the PDP’s flag bearer for Kaduna Central Senatorial Zone, noted that with the development, Adamu or Mr LA as he is popularly known, has surmounted the last hurdle to becoming the senator representing the zone.
” I am sure that you know that INEC has officially shortlisted Mr. LA as PDP’s candidate for our zone in next year’s election. With this development, there is no further barrier for him to cross.
” He is our candidate and he is our lawmaker come next year. Both the PDP and APC officials know that Mr LA’s victory is guaranteed as there is simply no one to oppose.
The youth leader insisted that there is no alternative to Lawal Adamu’s candidacy in the PDP nor candidates that could beat him.
Comrade Alaku therefore, vowed to mobilise over 800,000 votes for Mr LA .from all the wards in Kaduna Central.
” Right now, there is no candidate from Labour Party, Peopled Redemption Party nor the All Progressives Congress that can go head to head with our candidate. While he was busy helping residents of his zone, candidates from other parties were depending on the power of incumbency and worthless propaganda,” he insisted.
The Convener of Mr LA Support Group added, “Tell me, who is the APC candidate, who is the candidate for LP, where is the PRP senatorial candidate? They are not visible, they are invincible and simply not there.
“On our own part, we are reaching out to the voters from all the wards in Kaduna Central to ensure that Lawal Adamu gets over 800,000 votes come February next year,” he added.
Also speaking, the deputy leader of the group, Sefinatu Sophie Umoru vowed that Mr. LA would be the next Senator representing the central zone.
She added that strategies have been mapped out to ensure huge voter turnout during the polls, adding that Mr. LA Support Group would not leave any stone unturned in ensuring their candidate wins.
“We have concluded plans to make sure that the victory of Lawal Adamu is resoundingly convincing.
We are calling on the PDP officials to give Mr. LA the maximum cooperation so that we can collectively remove APC.
“Similarly we are urging INEC to ensure that election on that day be free and fair,” she added.
