A former minister of information in the administration of former president Goodluck Jonathan, Labaran Maku has said in the three years of Abdulahi Sule as Nasarawa state governor, he can only boast of a motor park as his major project.

Maku stated this in Lafia, the Nasarawa state capital during the unveiling of 52-member campaign team of The People’s Democratic Party (PDP), in Nasarawa State ahead of the 2023 general election with the former chairman Board of Trustees of the party, Senator Walid Jibrin, as the chairman of the council.

He urged party supporters to vote for the party’s presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, saying, “since PDP lost power, hunger and starvation began. Insecurity, unemployment and non-payment of civil servants surfaced.

“Within three years, what the present administration in Nasarawa state could inaugurate was a motor park which was commissioned by President Muhammadu Buhari. So, there is no reason to return APC back to power in the state.”

He however, warned against campaigns of calumny, ethnicity and tribalism, urging other opposition parties in the state to campaign on issue-based politics that would add value to the masses.

“In 2019, Governor Abdullahi Sule didn’t win the election. The APC is a dead party. So, I am calling on the electorates to guide their Permanent Voter Cards because it is their power,” Maku added.

Maku, is to serve as the Director General of the campaign. Other members include former Deputy Governor of Nasarawa State, Chief Micheal Abdul, and Major General Nuhu Agbazu rtd., among other party stakeholders.

Earlier while Inaugurating members of the campaign council at the Party’s secretariat in Lafia, the state chairman of the party, Francis Orogu, said the party had what it takes to wrestle power from the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) in the forthcoming general elections in the state. According to him, there are over 200 sub-committee members in addition to the main 52 campaign committee members.

He said, “As campaigns have kick started for the 2023 elections in earnest, our party and our candidates will remain committed to honest, clean and issue-based engagements and turn around the fortunes of the party.”

Orogu said that the campaign committee members were carefully selected based on their wealth of experiences and their capacity, adding that with the support of the party leaders, the party would emerge victorious in the forthcoming general election.

He stated that the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) has failed the nation, adding that bad governance led to the state of insecurity, killing and maiming unabated across the country.

The former Chairman of the Board of Trustees of the PDP, and chairman of the campaign council, Walid Jibrin, expressed confidence that the governorship candidate, Mr David Umbguadu, would emerge as governor in 2023.

He urged all the party’s supporters to vote for all the PDP candidates from the Senate, House of Representatives, and state House of Assembly members in the forthcoming election.

He said, “I stepped down from my position as BoT chairman to allow peace to reign in the party and pave way for other party stakeholders who had never occupied my former position. Politics of ethnicity, religion and tribalism is uncalled for.”
