PDP ’ll Still Win 2015 Presidential Election – Governor Aliyu
Mr. Aliyu said this during the presentation of take-off grants to beneficiaries of the Subsidy Reinvesting Empowerment Programme in Minna, Niger State capital, on Thursday.
The Niger State governor was among the seven disgruntled PDP governors that recently took on the leadership of the party under ex-National Chairman Bamangar Tukur but while five of his counterparts defected to the opposition All Progressives Congress, himself and his Jigawa State counterpart, Sule Lamido, remained in the PDP.
He said the PDP would overcome its crisis and win the 2015 poll, adding that what the party needed was prayer to do the right thing by nominating the right candidate for the election.
Aliyu added, “PDP will win the governorship election in Niger State in 2015, and we will do it by God’s guidance and by our clean minds.
“If anybody is with clean mind, God will assist the person no matter what people say. Even people who slaughter donkeys and vultures may need to go to Senegal or Mali. That is a long way to go to get these animals. So, whether you slaughter vultures or donkeys so that nobody will be liked, I am happy my people like me, and I can go anywhere and say ‘we did all we did with your support because we let you know what is happening and you advised’.
“A leader must always be ready for criticisms because most times when people criticise it is because they don’t know the basis of the decision that has been taken, but if they know, they may advice on how to correct it and how to make it better. Criticism is one of the ways to make leaders be in the know.”
Aliyu admonished Nigerians to always pray for the country to have good leaders “because when you have bad leaders the environment will be saturated with bad people.”
