There are allegations that the government of Kebbi State is planning a vote buy strategy to woo voters to cast their votes for candidates of theAll Progressives Congress, APC during the 2023 general elections in the state.
The allegations were from the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP saying Kebbi State is stockpiling money to buy votes in coming general elections in the state.
The allegations was made by PDP Governorship Candidate, general Aminu Bande (rtd) while addressing supporters during the party’s flag off campaign in Zuru.
“They have started stockpiling money meant for the repair of your roads and provide you with necessary amenities to buy your votes.
“You must reject them and their money and vote the PDP candidates for you to have good roads, electricity supply and provisions of amenities to improve your living conditions”, he said.
Bande said if elected he would run an all inclusive government. “Even if I’m not around,my deputy can perform in my absence. We promise to deal with the issues of bad road in this emirate and secure Zuru from bandits attacks”.
The PDP Governorship Candidate also said his administration would make funds available for community policing and as well give agricultural inputs to farmers to improve their production because he realized there is hunger in the land.
He recalled that personalities like Senator Adamu Aliero, Senator Yahaya Abdullahi and others left the APC because there is no justice in the party.
“With these personalities and your support, the PDP will win the general elections in Kebbi State”, Bande said.
Earlier, the PDP senatorial candidate for Kebbi South, Alhaji Musa Maidoki lamented that the zone has been deprived of good roads, security and amenities that are supposed to improve the living conditions of the people.
“I enjoin you to vote the PDP candidates from top to bottom to enjoy dividend of democracy the ruling party has deprived you”. Maidoki said.
