Zamfara PDP Primary: Dauda Extends Olive Branch To Aggrieved Aspirants

The governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Zamfara State, Alhaji Dauda Lawal, has appealed to those that lost the primaries to join him in rescuing the state from the present administration.

Lawal also commended those he said demonstrated a preference for unity by withdrawing their aspirations in his favour even before the commencement of the primary election.

Lawal who attributed his victory to God said, “I’m extending a hand of friendship to my co-contestants and my friends, Dr. Ibrahim Shehu Gusau, Alhaji Wadatau Madawaki, and Alhaji Hafiz Nahuce to set aside your perceived grievances and join me and work with the party in achieving a cause that is bigger than all of us.”

Ibrahim Shehu Gusau, Wadatau Madawaki, and Aliyu Hafiz Muhammad had petitioned the National Chairman of the party, citing irregularities in the primary process.

In a letter of complaint the aspirants accused the state party chairman, Col. Bala Mande (rtd) of working for his preferred candidate Lawal who they said was barely three days old in the party when he contested the primary election and allegedly won.

But in his appeal, Lawal called on those that lost to join him to work for the state and “rescue Zamfara from misgovernance.”
