Sokoto State APC governorship candidate, Alhaji Ahmad Aliyu, has called on the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) and security operatives in the state to allow free and fair election without undue interference.
Aliyu receiving hundreds of members of the Sokoto Amalgamated Traders Union, who paid him a solidarity visit explained that, if really all are allowed to go as it is in the Electoral Act, he is optimistic that APC would emerge victorious in the state.
He expressed satisfaction with the multitude of people that marched for the solidarity visit, explaining that, if given the mandate and elected as Governor of the state he would ensure the welfare of Sokoto state traders.
He said, “As it is now, the PDP-led government in the state has failed in boosting all business activities, creating youth empowerment, improving agricultural development, enhancing educational development, and uplifting the welfare of the state civil service, among many other sectors in the state.
“I pledge to reinvigorate all sectors rendered incapacitated by the present administration for proper human capital development.”
He described the procession of about eighty associations as colorful and an indication of success for APC.
The spokesperson of the associations, Alhaji Bello Mai Jama’a, said the procession was done just as a mark of respect to felicitate the leadership of the party and to express their support to the APC Gubernatorial candidate of the state.
