As politicians strategize and begin early preparations towards 2023 General Election, a group known as APC Youth Wing has thrown its weight behind former interim Chairman of Kaduna North Local Government Area, Hon. Usman Ibrahim, widely known as Sardaunan Badarawa, calling on him to aspire for position of Senator of Kaduna Central Zone, saying he would deliver, build and consolidate on giant strides and achievements recorded so far by the incumbent Senator Uba Sani, who by God grace will be our next governor in the state.
Addressing Journalists in Kaduna, Leader of the Group, Comrade Danlami Musa said, the Former interim Boss of Kaduna North had proven himself worthy of an elected position in his previous engagements in private and public sectors, particularly as Kaduna North Chairman where, according to Comrade Musa, Hon Ibrahim performed creditably well to the satisfaction of his subjects.
He listed youth and women empowerments, infrastructure development, staff welfare, investments on health and education among others as indelible achievements of Sardauna while he held sway as Kaduna North Boss.
“We as stakeholders of our progressive party, the APC, strongly believe and have faith in the ability of Usman Ibrahim to provide exemplary leadership to us as our Senator of Kaduna Central Zone.
“He is a man with the interest of his people at heart, who puts their interests, welfare, concerns and affairs above his . He’s a philanthropist of high pedestal who doesn’t publicise what he gives to people.
“Despite being out of political appointments, he has not relented in rendering service to his people, many of whom have been empowered and doing well in different vocations, such as, farming, tailoring, carpentry, fishery, electrical and mechanical engineering among others.
“He’s a prudent and honest man who is articulate and careful on how resources should be distributed equitably amongst the masses for the benefit of all”, Musa said.
According to him, “it could be recalled that Hon Ibrahim came second during the last APC Kaduna Central Senatorial primary election that had him, Uba Sani, Shehu Sani, Gen. Sani Saleh among other aspirants. After losing the primary election, he collapsed his structures into that of Uba Sani and Governor El-rufai’s in the spirit of comradeship, unity of the party and above all to ensure they emerge Victorious at the polls in 2019,” he recounted.
He said, “having a loyal member like Hon Ibrahim in our party, is a big plus and added advantage in our march towards 2023. It’s therefore, imperative to allow him fly our Senatorial flag for Kaduna central Zone for our collective good, progress and to be able to retain such an important seat in our party”.
He urged people and stakeholders in Kaduna Central Zone to support Usman Ibrahim to becoming their next senator in 2023, saying they won’t regret having him as their representative at the Senate.
