There may be an upset in the governorship primary election of the All Progressives Congress, APC as 17 groups have endorsed the aspiration of Prince Sannii Shaibu to become the party’s flag bearer.
In a ceremony that was attended by stakeholders, party stalwarts and elders of the party in the state, the delegates and associations leaders pledged to rally round Prince Shaibu to pick the party’s ticket for the November 21 governorship election.
According to the spokesperson of the group, HonYusufu Ahmed, the associations have been watching the activities of the Prince with keen interest and have resolved to throw their weight behind him to lead the party and the state to its desired glory.
“The state needs a vibrant, consistent and successful businessman in the mould of Prince Sanni Shaibu who has international connection to pull this state out its present doldrums. We are tired of promise and fail, which has been a stock in trade of past leaders”, he said.
The association, he said, believe that the only way out for the state to join the comity of great states is a generational change of power, not recycling of the older generations who brought the state to its present sad situation.
Ahmed added that the only person who can take this onerous task and give the state the colour of development it requires presently is Prince Shaibu whom he said had assisted many states out of their challenges in the past.
Receiving the group, Prince Shaibu commended them for their support, saying, he has been under intensive pressure from well meaning indigenes of the state to contest and bring his experience to bear in the development of the state.
He said having obliged to their request; he assured the people of the state that he will strive to bring the state to the status of the civilised world; even as he said he has already developed his blueprint to that effect.
