“In doing our politics, we are going to disagree on issues, but we would give no bitterness. We will compete on ideas; we will see ourselves as children of Nigeria and leaders of Nigeria. We are brothers, even if we disagree on issues we don’t disagree in persons, and our followers and supporters will know that they, too, are brothers and sisters, that election will be over and Nigeria will continue”, he said.
He noted that the SDP is committed to eradicating poverty and insecurity and this is the message of hope that has been brought to the people of Gumel in Jigawa state.
He said, “What has been slowing them down is that they need a government that is committed to eradicating security and eradicating poverty and that is what message we have brought here. By the time that we will come here next year, insha Allah we will be in government and you will see a lot of projects in this emirate”.
