APC inaugurates Tinubu/Shettima grassroots campaign council in Taraba

The ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Thursday, inaugurated the  Tinibu/Shettima independent campaign council for Taraba state.

The coordinator of the Tinubu/Shettima campaign council for Taraba,  Amb. Hassan Jika Ardo, has called the big wigs in the party to do away with their political differences in order to save the people from the decadence of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) government in the state.

Speaking while inaugurating the council, Ardo said: “I am today glad that all the things I told Tarabans in 2015 have come into play. Look at how poor Taraba state is, I told my people that Ishaku has nothing to offer if he becomes governor in 2015, but they wouldn’t listen.”

He stressed that he was not unaware of the enormity of the responsibility vested on him and the council but assured that they will deliver unfailingly with the support of the people.

Continuing, he said, “I am glad with what I have seen here with such large representation of all sections of the society especially those from the grassroots. We would carry out massive sensitization and mobilization for the people to come out and participate actively in the forthcoming general elections so that we can turn things around for the good of the people.

“The work is enormous. The time is ticking very fast, the resources are limited but we have confidence in this leadership and are optimistic that with your support and cooperation, success is already assured.”

The deputy national coordinator of the council, Alhaji Umar Ibrahim, added that the council was part of the strategies to ensure that the party wins the elections at all levels in the country without hitches.

Earlier, the state chairman of the party, Alhaji Ibrahim Tukur El-sudi, said Alhaji Hassan Jika Ardo, was a round peg in a round hole, noting that with this inauguration, APC was on the express road to victory.

“APC will not only take over Taraba and Nigeria in the next general election but will relegate the PDP to oblivion where it belongs,” he assured.
