04 January 2015, 09:10

Sokoto - Senate President David Mark on Saturday called on the people of Sokoto North Senatorial District to return Sen. Ahmed Maccido to the Senate in 2015.

Maccido is the Chairman of the Senate Committee on Appropriation.

Mark made the call during the distribution of motorcycles, water pumping, sewing and grinding machines purchased by Maccido to the constituents in Sokoto on Saturday.

Mark was represented by former Senate Leader and PDP gubernatorial candidate for the 2015 general elections in Sokoto state, Amb. Abdallah Wali.

Mark explained that Maccido’s re-election would enable him to continue with the good work he had been doing in line with the manifesto of the PDP.

He contended that the people of the district were lucky to have a committed senator as Maccido.

The district consists of Sokoto North, Sokoto South, Kware, Wamakko, Gudu, Tangaza, Binji and Silame local government areas.

Gov. Ayo Fayose Ekiti of State, who was the chairman of the occasion, said the items would improve the living standard of the beneficiaries.

Fayose, represented by former Aviation Minister, Babatunde Omotoba, said PDP was committed to boosting the welfare and total transformation of Nigerians.

“We will also continue to work for the peace, unity and progress of Nigeria’’, Fayose, added.
