An All Progressives Congress (APC) House of Representatives candidate in Sokoto State, Alhaji Sani Yakubu, has described the party presidential candidate, Sen. Bola Tinubu as an achiever par excellence, adding that he will not disappoint Nigerians if elected as the President in 2023.
Yakubu stated this during an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), on Thursday in Abuja.
”His emergence is a remarkable achievement to APC and Nigeria at large, for the sake of unity, equity and fairness,”
He said, ”if elected, Tinubu will not disappoint Nigerians; he is an achiever par excellence.
”He transformed Lagos State when he diligently governed the state and he performed excellently well as a Senator.
”I am therefore optimistic that he will replicate same as President of Nigeria and he will sustain the laudable and tangible achievements of President Muhammadu Buhari.”
He also urged party members and other critical stakeholders in the country to work towards for Tinubu during the 2023 general elections.
Yakubu promised to accord priority to education, healthcare, rural water supply, poverty eradication, youths and women empowerment, among others.
” I felt very good and honoured when I emerged as the candidate. So, I intend to continue the good work I started at the State Assembly.
”I can tell you, by the special grace of God, I will clinch 70 and 90 per cent of the votes in Gudu and Tangaza local governments.”
On the ongoing continuous voter registration, Yakubu expressed the fear that most of his constituents might be disenfranchised.
”We seriously need the authorities to intervene, because majority of the people cannot afford to come to Gudu town, the local government headquarters to get registered.
”This is because of the high cost of transportation as the exercise is only being conducted as it is the only centre in Gudu Local Government Area,” he said.
On the recurring security challenges in the area like kidnapping,banditry and cattle rustling, Yakubu called for the engagement of vigilante groups.
“They should be fully trained, equiped and adequately remunerated to complement the efforts of the security agencies in tackling the menace.”
