The PDP is making significant moves in key states in order to reclaim its position as the ruling party in the upcoming general elections in 2023.
The opposition Peoples Democratic Party has taken over strongholds in President Muhammadu Buhari’s home state.
In fact, while confirming the development, PDP chairman Senator Iyorchia Ayu stated that the APC government failed and the result is what is visible in the polity.
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) leadership has claimed that its chapter in Katsina state has taken over President Muhammadu Buhari’s campaign offices in the state.
Senator Iyorchia Ayu, the party’s national chairman, revealed in a chat with newsmen via his senior special assistant, media and communication, Yusuf A. Dingyadi, that the party has already captured most of President Buhari’s strongholds in Katsina.
He claimed that the APC government in Katsina had failed, resulting in rising insecurity, poverty, disunity, and economic backwardness across the state, according to Leadership.
