Kebbi PDP confident of victory in 2015

23 April 2014, 19:20

Birnin Kebbi - The Kebbi chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) says the party will win all elective positions in the state come 2015 general elections.

The Chairman of the party in the state, Mansur Shehu,  gave the assurance in Birnin Kebbi on Tuesday.

Shehu said that the party  had fine tuned strategies on how to achieve the electoral feat next year.

He expressed optimism that PDP would be re-elected in the state "owing to the glaring and beneficial democratic dividends provided by the party at both the national, state and the local government levels".

He said the party had in the past seven years constructed 5 000 kms of roads, 250 additional schools and 25 general hospitals in rural communities.

"The PDP in the state had empowered farmers with implements, seedlings and seed capital for mass production of rice in commercial quantity," Shehu said.

He said that Governor Saidu Dakingari PDP-led was not indebted to any external or internal organisation and individuals, adding that the re-election of the party in 2015 would witness more dividend of democracy.

Shehu, therefore, called on members of the party to support the PDP-led administration in the state, adding that the party would ensure discipline among its ranks irrespective of position, tribe or religion.
