From Mustapha Adamu, Kano

A former Special Adviser to Senator Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso, Alhaji Jafar Sani Bello, has declared his intention to contest for the gubernatorial seat in Kano State under the platform of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in 2019.
Bello declared his intention in Kano while submitting his intent letter for the contest to the leadership of the party, yesterday.
Giving the reasons for his decision to vie for the state’s exalted seat, Bello said it was time to bring new blood, new face, progressive thinking and change into politics of the state, adding that there is need for youths in the state to venture into politics to save education, health and agricultural sectors from collapse.
He said, “I think it is time to bring into our politics new blood, new face, progressive thinking and most importantly, progressive change. For our state’s growth and development, we must adopt a progressive agenda in order to save our education, health and agricultural sector from collapse.
“If elected governor, I will avail enormous opportunities to provide modern infrastructure across the state. It is unfortunate that our political leaders have turned politics into a source of enriching members and their families and few individuals at the detriment of the majority.
“For over 30 years, there has been no real push to develop the state to actively pursue and entice investors and businesses interests in developing our agricultural value chain”, he said.
Bello added that Nigerian political system was contaminated with sharp practices as money always determined who should be and who should not be devoid of merit.
Responding, the Deputy Chairman of PDP in the state, Alhaji Ibrahim Muhammad KT said the party had confidence in Bello, saying as young and vibrant person, he could deliver the state if elected Governor.
He said, “PDP will present credible candidates that will defeat the ruling party at all levels come 2019 general elections.”
