The Presidential aspirants under the People’s Democratic Party ( PDP ), Bukola Saraki, Pius Anyim and Muhammed Hayatudeen, have wooed the 111 party’s delegates in Kaduna state. The former Senate President, Bukola Saraki on Monday promised to make the issue of insecurity his most top-priority if elected.
Saraki who walked into the Kaduna state PDP Secretariat at exactly 2: 23 pm in his native blue attire appealed to the delegates to vote for him in the primaries.
The former Kwara state governor, however, promised free medical services to Nigerians if elected president.
” If I become the President of Nigeria through your support and effort, I will ensure free medical services to all Nigerians because it is possible for me to achieve as I am a medical doctor by profession.”
“I appeal to our Kaduna PDP delegates to vote for that person who has the energy to unite Nigeria and would put Nigeria first before himself or any other person, and I assure you I am that one person who would do all of these.
“2023 is not the time to vote any person into power. We need a courageous man to lead Nigeria. I stood my ground as Senate President for things to work well.
” If I am elected President I would make insecurity a thing of the past so that farmers would be able to go to their farms and children will go to school without any fear of being attacked.
The Presidential hopeful added that if elected, he will also revive moribund Textiles industries in Kaduna State. “We must unite the country because we are one. So vote me into power and I will revive all Textiles industries in Kaduna. We must provide employment to youths,” Saraki emphasized.
While in Kaduna on Tuesday, the duo of Pius Ayim and Muhammed Hayatudeen also promised to reposition the country socially, economically and unite the country for the benefit of the citizenry.
Speaking to the delegates, Anyim who became the Senate President in August 2000 after Chuba Okadigbo was impeached promised to revamp the nation’s economy, which according to him would end insecurity in the country.
He said: “The theme of my campaign is greater Nigeria, and we would work together to make Nigeria great.”
According to Hayatudeen, it is not time for Nigerians to look at how prominent an aspirant is but, who can take the country to an enviable position.
While saying that he should be held responsible for his electioneering campaign promises if elected, adding that the country has gone through opportunities and challenges.
