Sambo meets party chiefs, others in Kaduna
AS the 2015 general election draws closer, the Vice President, Mohammed Namadi Sambo has engaged Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) chieftains and other top party faithful in grassroots mobilization campaign in the state to ensure victory at the polls in Kaduna and other states in the North West Zone.
Besides, in the last two weeks, the Vice President visited Kaduna State twice where he held series of meetings with various stakeholders including religious leaders, community leaders, traditional leaders, youths and women.
At a meeting held with religious leaders last week, Sambo used the event to highlight the performance of President Goodluck Jonathan administration.
A close source said the Vice President is working hard to ensure that the PDP secures appreciable support in Kaduna during the elections, saying that, “Sambo has held many meetings with various groups where he listened to what the people have to say about the present administration at the national level.”
As at the time of filing this report, Sambo was holding meetings with religious groups and stakeholders from all the 23 local councils of Kaduna State.
Specifically, one of the stakeholders who also spoke to The Guardian said the Vice President is working to ensure peaceful elections in Kaduna and other parts of the country.
“The meetings are not party affairs; so many people that have met the Vice President are not even politicians. From what I have seen, the main aim of the meetings is to sensitize stakeholders on need to enlighten the people so that we can have peaceful elections. I have seen traditional and religious leaders here and those are not politicians,” he said.
