Daily Trust - - INSIDE POLITICS - From Haruna Gimba Yaya, Gombe

Vice Pres­i­dent Pro­fes­sor Yemi Os­in­bajo at the week­end flagged off the cam­paign of the APC gu­ber­na­to­rial can­di­date in Gombe State, Al­haji Muham­mad Inuwa Ya­haya.

Os­in­bajo, who led other APC stake­hold­ers to the cam­paign rally in Kal­tungo Lo­cal Gov­ern­ment Area of the state, called on the elec­torate to vote for Ya­haya and all other can­di­dates fielded by the APC.

The vice pres­i­dent also called on Nige­ri­ans to vote for Pres­i­dent Muham­madu Buhari to en­able him con­sol­i­date on the gains of his first ten­ure.

He said Nige­ria needed a man of Buhari’s im­pec­ca­ble qual­i­ties and char­ac­ter to pre­side over the coun­try at this crit­i­cal time.

“Pres­i­dent Buhari is a trust­wor­thy and hon­est man, I have worked with him and I can tell you that he is a man that means well for the coun­try. This is the kind of leader that Nige­ria needs at this mo­ment,” he said.

While pre­sent­ing the APC flag to Ya­haya, Os­in­bajo urged the peo­ple of the state to vote for all APC can­di­dates.

In his speech, the Sec­re­tary to the Gov­ern­ment of the Fed­er­a­tion, Boss Mustapha, said APC was a party for all Nige­ri­ans, re­gard­less of their eth­nic or re­li­gious af­fil­i­a­tions.

He said that the peo­ple of the North East were grate­ful to Buhari for the im­prove­ment recorded in se­cu­rity in the sub-re­gion.

Also speak­ing, the gu­ber­na­to­rial can­di­date, Ya­haya, said the peo­ple of the state had pledged to vote for APC at all lev­els in the gen­eral elec­tions.

Twenty-one prom­i­nent mem­bers of the PDP, in­clud­ing a serv­ing se­na­tor from Gombe South, Bar­ris­ter Joshua Li­dani and three gu­ber­na­to­rial as­pi­rants who de­fected to the APC, were re­ceived into the party at the event.
