Governorship candidate of the Social Democratic Party (SDP) in Jigawa State, AlhaJi Bashir Adamu, has denied defecting to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Adamu told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Dutse yesterday that he has never discussed or told anybody or group that he would dump his party to join PDP.
“I am, therefore, warning those spreading that fake news aimed at scuttling my political ambition to desist because they will never succeed.
“PDP has already failed, so how can I leave SDP and join the party that is already dead,” he said.
The governorship candidate said that if he secured the mandate of his people he will focus attention on education, both western and Islamic.
“This is because education is the ingredient for human development,
“When human beings have education, it will develop their skills and talents intellectually, socially, economically and otherwise.”
“Another critical area I am going to pay attention is capacity building stressing that people will be empowered with soft loans to engage on meaningful ventures and businesses to be self-reliant as well as create employment for others.
Adamu said that agriculture will also get a boost if he becomes the governor of jigawa, pointing out that improved seeds, fertilisers and other farm inputs will go down to meet the farmers at the grassroots.
He stated that his administration will create a synergy to seek for markets for the sales of farm produce harvested by farmers.
“The gubernatorial candidate, therefore, called on people of the state to support him saying that he will never betray the confidence they will repose in him.
