“I’m declaring before you, today, that I’m contesting in the party’s primaries. And by the grace of God, if emerged victorious to bear the party’s flag at the 2023 general election, I need the co-operation of you all,” has said.
Ashiru made the assertions at his campaign office when Women Leaders, PDP Secretaries and PDP Youth Leaders from the 23 Local Government Areas of Kaduna State had a meeting with him.

“In politics, no one can go anywhere alone, we all need each other because everyone has a role to play. I’m urging each and every one of us to be committed to place the party at poll position to clinch power in 2023.”
PDP Women Leader in Kaduna State, Hon. Murna Amboso assured party faithful of women’s commitment to the actualization of power returning to the party this year.
“Women constitute the majority of voters not only in the state but, in Nigeria at large. The role of women in our electoral process cannot be overemphasized. We, as women, are in the forefront of actualizing the party’s dream of returning to Sir Kashim Ibrahim House. But, Women are always not appointed in key positions. We demand for a rethink,” she said.
