Alhaji Ubale Yusufu Hashim today became the first All Progressive Congress governorship aspirant to pick the expression of interest and nomination form.
Hashim who picked the form at the APC headquater in Dutse amidst hundreds of supporters said that the time of the PDP government in Jigawa is up.
“First and foremost let me said that I am impressed with the transparent nature the sale of nomination form is being conducted in Jigawa. This shows that the party is democratic and there is a level playing ground. I want to say that the PDP in Jigawa and Nigeria is a spent horse whose time is up. Our people are simply fed up. The APC is an idea whose time has come. My major assignment if voted to office is to eradicate poverty and improve the human development index of the state”
He said that the biggest failure of the PDP government in the state is its inability to mechanise agriculture and solve the problem of subsistence farming among the populace.
Hashim said an APC government will domesticate all the water that runs through the state to Tiga dam in Kano that usually cause flood for agricultural purposes adding that agriculture is the major means to lift the people of Jigawa out of poverty.
