Aminu Abdullahi




A group of supporters, under the aegis of Arewa Decide 2023 Naka Sai Naka has promised to deliver Kano state for Atiku Abubakar, presidential candidate of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the 2023 election.

KANO FOCUS reports that the group made the pledge at stakeholders parley, held in Kano on Wednesday.

Speaking to journalists the Chairman of the group, representing 19 Northern states, Rabi’u Hussaini, described Abubakar as the most competent candidate in this political dispensation.

According to Hussaini, among the presidential contestants, the former Vice President is the most visionary, who had the wherewithal to take the country to the promised land.

He said even in campaigns, the Wazirin Adamawa’s agenda is far better than his contenders.

He promised that youth in the 19 Northern states had resolved to vote massively for Atiku in the election, noting that he is the only candidate that could fix the problems bedevelling the region.

He said” we have gathered thousands of Atiku’s supporters to prove to doubting Thomases that Kano  would stand still for Atiku in readiness of casting millions of votes for him at the polls. we have no iota of doubt that all the votes in Kano  belonged to him.

“Blanket support  for Atiku in Kano during the forthcoming presidential polls in Kano is imminent. I can confidently tell you that the electorates in the country, have started regretting voting APC to power in 2015. The economic situation in the country is dicey and life for the common man has utterly become   unbearable. we need a change of guard at the centre to clear  the mess,” he revealed.

“For the common man to heave a sigh of relief, he promised to open the nation’s boarders that were sealed for quite  a long time. prices of essential commodities have reached an astronomical height. people are daily suffering  with millions of Nigerians living below poverty  line. it is indeed a regrettable phenomenon” he said.

He called on PDP’s supporters nation wide, to rise to the challenge  of sacking those he described as members of a cabal who milked the treasury of the country dry at the expense of millions of voters who had placed too much expectations on the present government.
