Dr. Dauda Lawal Dare, the Peoples Democratic Party’s (PDP) candidate for governor in Zamfara State, has said that he is ready to unseat the state’s All Progressives Congress (APC) government.
Dare, who organized a rally from the border between Sokoto and Zamfara states to the Gusau metropolis, spoke to his throngs of supporters on Sunday and expressed his optimism that he will win the 2023 governorship election with or without posters.
He asserted that the state government had prohibited PDP posters in the state and claimed that as a law-abiding citizen of Nigeria, he was immune to intimidation.
“I have warned my supporters not to take laws into their hands. I don’t subscribe to politics of bitterness,” he said.
He lamented that the ruling APC government in the state believes that he would not contest the 2023 governorship election due to the nullification of his candidature, forgetting that the court has not decided the case.
The PDP leader in the state explained that the court had declared that both parties should maintain the status quo pending the judgment of the case, saying that he was full of confidence that he would win on the judgment day.
“I am advising members of the All Progressive Congress (APC) in the state not to rejoice yet because nobody knows where the pendulum will swing to.
“With today’s political rally, I have seen my political worth, and with the crowd I saw, there is no doubt that I will be running away with the victory in the 2023 governorship election in the state.
“You can never be a man until you have solved the problem much more larger than your life and that problem is to salvage and reposition Zamfara State,” he said.
Dare further stated that politics is a game of numbers, urging his teeming supporters to protect their votes in the 2023 general elections.
