Immediate past director general of the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA),Alhaji Mohammed Sani Sidi yesterday urged that all hands must be on deck to take over the affairs of the state from the jaws of misgovernance, as he formally declared his intentions to vie for the governorship position on the ticket of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Alhaji Sidi who is the fifth aspirant who have visited the PDP leadership at the party’s secretariat to declare their intentions and seek for support, commended the State Working Committee (SWC) for all their efforts and sacrifices to ensure that the party and the PDP family remains virile, focused and united inspite of the myriad of challenges that continue to shake their fists before their faces.
“It is for this your tenacity that we still have a party today called the PDP. It is for this your resoluteness that we still have hope for the common man come 2019, Nigerians are eagerly waiting for the PDP to bounce back and by God’s grace we will surely come back and set our people free from the chains of hunger, insecurity, digital corruption, misgovernance and backward leadership that we have been plunged into, especially in Kaduna state where the style of leadership is government of deceit by destroyers for family and friends.
“I am here also to formally inform you of my intention to contest the governorship of Kaduna State in the forthcoming 2019 general election on the platform of our great Party the PDP. This decision was taken after due consultations with my family, friends, political associates and key stakeholders across the State. I have come therefore to seek for your blessing and prayers.
“My vision for Kaduna state is one of a peaceful, united and prosperous state. God has endowed our dear state with abundant human and material resources, and one of my main goals is to provide the necessary visionary leadership that harnesses these resources together to transform the state for our collective good.
“Although in opposition, our party the PDP is still the biggest, strongest and most united. Our robust manifesto and virile constitution have become constant reference points for other parties. Under my leadership, I will ensure the retrenchment of the Principe of Party supremacy where all of us are subjected to the supremacy of the Party irrespective of our political status.
“At this juncture, I wish to call on all of us, especially my co-contestants, that whoever ultimately emerges as candidate of our party should be supported so we can ‘bring back’ our State. I am fully prepared to take the lead in this process. We are a Party that is reputed to have a robust mechanism for resolving internal conflicts following every congress. I know we will do it even better this time around”.
Responding, the state PDP Chairman, Felix Hassan Hyet assured him of a level playing ground for all the aspirants while wishing him well.
