Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), in Kaduna State, has expressed its determination towards reclaiming Kaduna state from the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) at the next poll.
The leading opposition party in the state disclosed that no stone will be left unturned in its efforts to win back the state in 2023.
The Chairman of the party, Hon Felix Hassan Hyat, averred this during the inauguration of the State Campaign Council, (SCC) and the State Campaign Management Committee, (SCMC) in Kaduna on Monday.
“We are battle ready to win the national and State elections in the forthcoming 2023 poll. The campaign structure has been designed to achieve this.
“The campaign structure was just a leadership group. The responsibility of winning the elections rests on the shoulders of every member of the party and every Nigerian in order to rescue Kaduna State and the country.
“The good people of Kaduna State have suffered untold hardships in the last seven and a half years of the APC administration in the areas of insecurity, divided society, dismissals and unwarranted onslaught of the civil service, disobedience to the rule of law, among others.
“Our party, PDP, is ready to rescue the State in next year’s elections. “Let me clarify at this juncture that the State Campaign Council has the task of Formulating Campaign Guidelines, Strategies, etc,” the Chairman explained.
While inaugurating the Committees, Hyat charged the two organs to work together seamlessly and achieve the desired positive results.
“You must all be guided by the long time saying that ‘United we stand, divided we fall’. We should welcome constructive criticisms, be open to suggestions and new ideas and carry people along and adopt an open door policy,” Hyat said.
According to him, people now have the opportunity to join forces with the PDP to rescue themselves and the State.
He however, explained that Governor El-Rufai has publicly declared that his successor, the gubernatorial candidate of the APC, will be more ruthless than him.
He stated that with the new Electoral Law that had provided for every vote to count, the unfortunate experience of the 2019 General Elections is now history.
