An All Peoples Congress (APC) House of Representatives aspirant wishing contest for Wushishi, Mariga, Kontagora and Mashegu federal constituency in Niger State, Alhaji Aliyu Adamu, has called for unity in the party as it rounds up its congresses across the state.
Adamu, who is also the National President of All Nigerian Youth Movement (ANYM) disclosed this in an interview in Minna, saying that with election concluded, the major opposition party is now better positioned to strategize ahead of the 2015 elections in the state.
He emphasized the need to unite and work for the party’s success even as he urged members of the APC in the state to put aside their differences and work towards a successful outing in the 2015 general election.
“I have confidence that with the election over, our party is on its way to a successful outing 2014. All the problems, especially the differences within it will be settled and members across the state will jointly work towards the success of the party, insead of allowing the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, to keep tearing it apart. To me, I think the APC is now realizing itself. Once the issues are realized, it is easy to resolve it. APC has a hold in Niger state as witnessed during the party’s ward election.”
Adamu hinged his desire to run for the seat to offer the much needed change by adding value to the lives of people of his area and the state as a whole through a better representation if elected.
He therefore explained that before making pubilc his political ambition, he had consulted with highly placed personalities in the state as well as his area and that they all gave him their blessings to vie for the seat.
“The people of my constituency desire a change because they have been mis-represented. And the way they welcome my aspiration encourges me to contest. I am coming out as a solution because I have identified their problems. My first goal is service to humanity.”
