In a bid to unseat the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) in Kaduna State in the 2023 general election, former Vice President Namadi Sambo and former Kaduna State governors, Ahmed Makarfi and Ramalan Yero have teamed up.
Naija News reports that the political bigwigs made this known at the official flag-off and presentation of flags to candidates of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for the Kaduna Central Senatorial District for the various positions in the elections.
This was as the senatorial candidate of the party for Kaduna Central, Lawal Adamu, who recently triumphed at the Supreme Court to reclaim the seat, was officially handed over the flag of the PDP as its candidate.
They vowed to unseat the ruling APC from power in the Northwest state.
Speaking as the special guest of honour at the flag off, Sambo called on Nigerians and the good people of Kaduna State to come out en masse to vote for all the PDP candidates in the elections.
Also speaking, Makarfi and Yero called on all the PDP members to unite, go back to their respective polling units and deliver the party’s candidates in the polls.
“We the former governors of the state will guide the governorship candidate of the party when voted accordingly,” The PUNCH quoted Makarfi as saying.
Speaking earlier at the event, senators Shehu Sani and Sani Bello called on Nigerians and Kaduna residents to ensure that the APC was not given the opportunity to come back to power both at the state and national levels.
They stated that the present suffering being experienced would be a child’s play compared to what would follow should they return to power.
