All the elected local government Chairmen and Councilors in Jigawa State have resolved to dump the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) for the All Progressive Congress (APC).
It was gathered that the move was not unconnected with their earlier decision to embrace the ruling party, based on its ideology of principle of justice and good governance.
The Jigawa State Chairman of Association of Local Governments of Nigeria (ALGON), Alh. Khalid S. Ibrahim, confirmed the development, adding that “our reasons are clear and straight forward; that we have agreed, in principle, to embrace the APC based on its policies of cardinal principle of social justice and good governance.
Khalid, who is also the Chairman of Birnin-Kudu Council, further stated that the idea was conceived shortly after their maiden courtesy on Governor Badaru Abubakar, where they extolled his good virtue of leadership, describing him as a people-oriented governor.
“Verily, your numerous achievements in the last 100 days in office, in upholding principle of probity and accountability, restoration of discipline in the state civil service, in addition to the introduction of other economic measures, in cutting down extra expenditure for prudent public expenditure have clearly shown that the APC government is for positive change and development.”
