Zamfara State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), on Friday, received the campaign team of Otunba Gbenga Daniel with assurances of the members’ mass support in his bid for the chairmanship of the party.
Welcoming the team, the party chairman in the State, Sen. Mohammed Hassan said they were happy to have Otunba Gbenga Daniel and his team in Zamfara in continuation of his nationwide tour. Said he: “Your Excellency, I have a lot of respect for you. About this time yesterday I was in Niger Republic but I have to cut my business trip short to be able to receive you. We have seen the massive development you initiated and executed in Ogun State. We don’t want a chairman who will be too old to work. We want a young chairman like you who can still run around and ensure victory for PDP”.
“Let me convey the message of our father, Gen. Aliyu Gusau (rtd), who is unavoidably absent. He asked me to tell you that you should feel relaxed in Zamfara because you are at home”.
Continuing, he stated that Zamfara PDP is ready for the national convention in December. “All the delegates are here, they will hear what you have to say to them and I’m sure by December when we meet in Abuja, you will emerge as our Chairman, insha Allah.”
In response, Otunba Daniel greeted the leaders and thanked then for their show of love and support. “I greet all our leaders, my boss, retired Gen. Aliyu Gusau, my friends Bashir Yuguda and Bello Matawalle. All around the country, our people are clamouring to change the change they made two years ago. I’m here to offer myself to lead struggle. All of us will do it together and Insha Allah, PDP will come back to power in 2019”, he assured the teeming supporters.
Earlier, Otunba Daniel and his entourage paid condolence visit to the family of late Coordinator for Zamfara State, AbdulHadi Seidu Yan’ware who died recently.
Commiserating with the bereaved family, he expressed his shock on hearing the sad news and prayed for the repose of his soul as he assured the family of his continual support.
Responding of behalf of the family, Alh. Abubakar Usman appreciated Otunba Daniel’s gestures to the family since the demise of Abdulhadi.
“We take solace in the belief that only God knows tomorrow. I have seen a great leadership quality in you since the time I came to Sagamu when you lost your father. You didn’t know me then but I have since known you are still going higher. I assure you that our people are with you”, he said.
