Addressing journalists after a consultative meeting with the PDP in Kaduna, the former governor of Jigawa said the resolve of the aspirants has driven fears in the mind of the ruling All progressive Congress.

He said the fear has driven the ruling party into desperation as shown in some of it’s recent actions.

“Those aspirants in the PDP and the coalition are ready to make any sacrifice for the sake of our future generations. I feel sad for them, I feel sad for Nigerians because people just took over power without being prepared for it.

“People are dying everywhere, there is kidnapping everywhere, from here to Abuja, look at Birnin Gwari, Zamfara there is blood everywhere in their desperation for power. They feel embarrassed, and are confused but the entire world is watching us. Everything has failed, you don’t feel secure, you don’t feel safe anywhere. This country is for all of us we are not second citizens.

“APC is scared and desperate, they have stolen our money. PDP has made history, the party has produced three presidents, many governors, senators, reps. All former governors are from PDP. It is now up to Nigerians to compare between the PDP and APC government. Are the APC government of angels? Are they pious? Are they not corrupt?

“There is anger, there is confusion so PDP decided to say no to the APC government. PDP is the only political party with political sagacity.”

“Nigeria is my country, I should not be afraid, I fear nobody. If you fear then you are doomed, if I die then I have died for the youth. I have been to the prison four or five times so why should i fear?” He asked rhetorically.
