Senator Aliyu Magatakarda Wamakko, representing Sokoto North Senatorial District has said that the opposition parties will do worse win in 2019.
The Senator spoke at his Gawon Nama residence in Sokoto when he received the winner of the APC’s primary election for the forthcoming bye election for the Kware/Wamakko Federal Constituency, Albino Ahmed Kalambaina, and state party leaders.
According to Wamakko: ” In 2019, in sha Allahu, the opposition parties will score only few votes, even if there will be any opposition party left by then.”
”Sokoto State will produce more votes in 2019 than it did in 2015, because in 2015, some opposition parties made a little impact, but none would remain by 2019, God willing.
” We will produce more than the one million votes we produced in 2019, as the state remains a stronghold of the APC”, he said.
Senator Wamakko who is also the Chairman of the Senate Committee on Basic and Secondary Education restated that the people of Sokoto state and Nigerians still reposed tremendous confidence in the APC as well as its elected and appointed officials.
”Leaders at all levels should be dedicated to the service of the people and not being selfish and APC is doing just this, at all levels in the country.
”The people of the state and Nigerians in general will not in any way regret giving their mandates to the party, ”the Lawmaker, added.
He commended Gov. Aminu Waziri Tambuwal for exhibiting high sense of selflessness during the primary election.
According to him, the party in the state was still intact, while assuring that both he and the governor would remain inseparable to the shame of detractors.
He congratulated the APC flag bearer, Kalambaina for his victory at the primary and charged him and other members of the party to buckle up for the bye election scheduled for the 28th of this month.
‘We should not in any way be complacent as the arduous work has just begun. We should go out and meet the people, seek for forgiveness, seek their votes, as well renew our commitment to serve them better, at all levels
”Sokoto state will continue to remain a strong pillar and home for APC, while it will remain a bastion of peace, unity, tolerance and even socioeconomic development,” Senator Wamakko, further, vowed
