Discard Rumours of Me Stepping Down, Mobilize more electorates, Says Bityong


Amina Anebi, Kaduna

The Asake-Bashir Campaign Organization has called on its teaming supporters in and outside Kaduna to disregard all lies and rumors peddled by a jittery PDP that Hon. Jonathan Asake, the gubernatorial candidate of the Labour Party, (LP) for Kaduna State has stepped down from the contest for Hon. Isa Ashiru Kudan of the PDP for Kaduna State.

This was contained in a statement signed by the campaign Public Relations Officer, Comrade Yakubu Bityong urging LP supporters to mobilize members to vote for the Party in the forthcoming governorship election.

"Those who are spreading these rumors are political bandits of the PDP who are forced to face the hard fact that Asake is the choice of Kaduna state people under a free and fair election".

"Asake is very much in the contest and he is not looking back, despite the unkind and mean rumors spread to rubbish his hard-earned good name".

"We are not unaware of some groups and clergymen who have compromised their integrity and collected huge sums of money from their sponsors to poison the minds of the electorates against Asake". 

The statement alleged that the mongers who are driving fear and hate in the heart of some undiscerning minds have also alleged that Asake is sponsored to divide the votes of the PDP so that the APC Muslim-Muslim ticket will be retained in Kaduna State.

"Under a free and fair election, we don't see where the APC will win the gubernatorial seat of Kaduna state after the destruction it had brought upon Kaduna State", It said.

 The statement explained that "it's politics that gave grounds for the APC to do what it liked with the people's assets and fortune of Kaduna state. It is the same PDP that wasted the votes of the people of Kaduna state in 2019. It is the same characters that are parading the same candidates for the 2023 elections". 

"We have identified our lapses in the February 25th Presidential election and we have taken all necessary corrections to avoid the kind of votes robbery that the Labour Party suffered in Kaduna State".

 Adding that, "the APC and the PDP know from their hearts that Peter Obi and most of our candidates for the National Assembly elections won in Kaduna State, and we are going to get back our victory from the courts".

"We are therefore calling on our supporters not to be intimidated or be deceived by anyone or groups".

"They should mobilize themselves and convince more electorate for a landslide victory in the gubernatorial race come 11th March 2023".
