The leaders of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) support group known as PDP Maximum Impact, Hon. Wilson Iliya, former Senior Special Adviser to Governor Nasiru el-Rufai on Political Matters (Zone 3) and Hon. Istifanus Manasseh, former Senior Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, over the weekend, in Kafanchan in a joint meeting with the Coalition of Southern Kaduna PDP Young Persons validated their commitment in fortifying the party’s Support base ahead of 2023 general election.
In part, the Coalition of Southern Kaduna PDP Young Persons were in Kafanchan to also support and cheer up PDP Maximum Impact for the massive impact they are creating having rejoined the PDP from APC, recently.
“PDP is home and we are back home, because we believe in PDP and we are going to work for it.” said Wilson.” Adding that, various politicians and groups are back to the PDP and many more are on their way and they will continue to decamp from APC to PDP to support the party. We are back and we will work and ensure that PDP is elected and return back to power.
“At PDP Maximum Impact our strategy is to start wooing people to the party starting from the ward level, our zone to other zones and the nation at large.”
The leader of the Coalition of Southern Kaduna PDP Young Persons, Hon. Danjuma Sarki, said, why the group was in Kafanchan was to identify with PDP Maximum Impact for the positive things they are doing in advancing the cause of PDP in the zone.
“PDP Maximum Impact is made up of politicians with capacity and what they are doing is worthy of support and recommendation. We are here also to share in their joy for leaving a party that is known for its perjury and deceit. A party that wants to see the poor in perpetual poverty. A party that doesn’t build people but, turning able people into poor people, a party that is known for killing businesses and pushing wards into the poverty trap.
“I admire your courage for leaving APC to rejoin the PDP, you have damned your appointments with all the paraphernalia of the office and the goodies that comes with it. You guys are worthy of praises because there are many politicians in the APC of Southern Kaduna extraction that are not carried along and their people are treated with contempt but, have sworn blind loyalty to the party,” Sarki said.
He went further saying, “I’m here to let you know that you people took the right decision and I’m assuring you that you will be carried along and by the grace of God, if the party returns to power most of you will be better for it.
“When we take stock of what we have achieved as a people from 1999 to 2015, we have every reason to be thankful to PDP. PDP had done so much for us, it gave us so much to be happy about. In the other way round, APC didn’t give us our fair share of the social contract but, punished us , denied us our fair share of the social contract, treated us with contempt and disdain. “
Hon. Barnabas Samuel Barry, former coordinator of APC Like Minds in Southern Kaduna expressed the group joy for rejoining the PDP. He said We left the PDP because of lack of internal democracy and crass impunity, however, the party is better organised now and we feel we can come back and contribute our quarter.
