The Bauchi State Gubernatorial candidate of the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP), Ambassador Shuaibu Ahmed Adamu has said that his party is offering a more credible alternative to the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) and main opposition, Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
He expressed this in an interview with newsmen at his residence in Bauchi on Sunday January 27, 2019.
“Our message consistently to Bauchi people in the 12 local government areas we have toured so far is that we are offering them a more credible alternative to PDP or APC, 70 per cent of places we went to agree with us and are highly excited by what’s expected when we win the polls,” he said.
He explained that for one, they openly confessed that under the present democratic dispensation, no political party or it’s candidates have visited them or solicited for their votes, thereby assuring the NNPP that they would all file out and support it’s candidate for honouring them.
“They are excited and say only true leaders would visit them. When you see the infrastructure in those places you would weep because you see no electricity, no water, you go through farm lands and bushes to get to such communities because there are no roads,” he added.
Speaking further, Ambassador said though his party is not fielding a presidential candidate, he has always advised the communities visited to vote in the candidate they believe is trustworthy and would keep to his oath to protect their lives, property and treasury.
