Uba Sani makes fresh promises to defectors
Uba Sani, excited by this latest triumph, said the movement of such huge people from the PDP to the APC has permanently sealed the fate of the PDP in the LG.
The rally took place in the presence of the party stakeholders at both State and LG levels led by the State Chairman, Air Cmdr. Emmanuel Jekada (Rtd).
"This massive defection is a step in the right direction for the decampees, a huge advantage for our party and also a clear indication that the opposition party is now completely non-existent in Giwa Local Government Area.
"Members of the opposition party in their thousands have declared interest in joining our dear party and we will go round the rest of the 22 local governments to receive them and put a knockout punch that will extinguish PDP in Kaduna State.
"I thanked them for finding it necessary to join the progressives family and for their willingness to be part of the process in ensuring that the developmental legacies of the present administration led by our amiable Governor Nasir Ahmad El-Rufai continues beyond 2023," Uba Sani said.
He also appreciated all APC stakeholders at the state, local government and ward levels, and urged them to continue to work assiduously for the success of the party in all elective positions in the state and at the federal level come 2023.
Shortly after the event, Uba led the stakeholders and candidates to pay homage to the District Head of Giwa, Alhaji Abdulkarim Aminu, Wamban Zazzau.
