As February 25 election is fast approaching, the President of the Senate, Senator Ahmad Lawan has vowed that Yobe State would deliver 98 percent of votes in Yobe to the candidate of the rulling All Progressives Congress(APC), Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu and his running mate, Kashim Shettima.
Speaking, weekend, in Damaturu, at the inauguration of the Yobe State APC 2023 Campaign Council which held at Yobe Government House, Lawan described Yobe State as the pride of APC and vowed that no stone would be left unturned to ensure its victory at the polls at all levels.
The council chaired by former Governor of the State, Alhaji Ibrahim Gaidam, has Lawan as Alternate chairman and former Governor Bukar Abba Ibrahim as the Grand Patron.
In a statement by his Special Adviser, Media, Ola Awoniyi, the President of the Senate said: “Just as the chairman of the council said, we will be totally committed to ensuring that this party, the APC in Yobe State delivers all the seats by the Grace of God.
“We will work tirelessly, we will ensure that we leave no stone unturned, we will do whatever it takes because APC in Yobe State is the pride of APC in Nigeria and we cannot afford to let APC family in Nigeria down.
“Actually, we believe that we are supposed to dominate in Presidential poll when it comes to performance. We should be able to have the highest percentage, like we did before, nothing less than 98 percent to vote our presidential candidate.
“And we can do that by mercilessly committing ourselves to our party rather than regional thinking or sentiments.
“In Yobe State, you know we have a single family and our Governor by the Grace of God should have the highest number of votes for any Governor in Nigeria.
“This we will do by making sure that our zones, the three zones in the state compete. So I want to assure you that we do everything possible within the law to ensure that our Governor comes back to office in flying colour.
