The National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Alhaji Adamu Mu’azu, on Wednesday appealed to Nigerians to always pray for the victory of the party during the 2015 general elections and beyond.
Mu’azu made the plea in Sokoto after handing over a cheque of N250 million donated by the President Goodluck Jonathan to the victims of the Kara Market fire outbreak in Sokoto.
“There is only one people-oriented party that always sees to the problems of the people and fulfils its promises to them.
“The president promised to assist the victims and he has sent us to deliver the amount as promised today”.
He said that although President Goodluck Jonathan visited Sokoto to welcome former Gov. Attahiru Bafarawa into the fold of the PDP, he still felt that it was necessary to visit and commiserate with the victims.
“The President found it necessary to visit his brothers and sisters, the victims of the fire incident at Kara Market and also as a brother to all, he promised to assist as he did today”, Mu’azu said.
The PDP chairman called on the leaders of Kara Market to be just and fair in sharing the money donated to them by the Federal Government.
He also commended the Sokoto State Deputy Governor, Alhaji Muktar Shagari, for his tireless commitment, especially on matters concerning the activities of the people.
In his remarks, Shagari said that the people of the state were always grateful with the way and manner the President was committed to further improving their living standard.
He promised that “the people of Sokoto State are always ready to commit themselves to this administration and take full responsibility toward achieving greater goals for the nation”.
The deputy governor thanked the President for his huge contributions and assistance to the victims.
Responding, the Chairman of Kara Market Traders Union, Alhaji Bello Danhaja, promised to be just and fair in the distribution of the money.
Danhaja hailed Jonathan for his brotherhood and promised to continue to work toward the development of the PDP and the nation in general. (NAN)
