Governor Dauda Lawal of Zamfara State has expressed readiness for the rerun election ordered by the Court of Appeal in a recent ruling, adding that he is approaching the political contest with full confidence.
The governor said this while speaking with his hundreds of supporters at the state’s PDP secretariat in Gusau, the state capital, following his return from a foreign trip.
“I am very optimistic that even if the election is held a hundred times, there is no doubt that I will run away with landslide victory.
“We are happy with the court’s ruling and we are ever ready to go into the contest with the All Progressives Congress, APC, governorship candidate in his country home,” he said.
He said that Allah had already made him the Governor of Zamfara State, assuring that it would remain so, no matter what the opposition APC members and other hypocrites would do.
He assured his supporters that he would continue from where he had stopped in the last five months stressing that efforts are ongoing to embark on fresh road projects in Gusau, the state capital.
“We have started well, by paying all entitlements to the civil servants, paying for the WAEC and NECO fees which the previous administration refused to do.
“We have also solved the problem of water scarcity and embarked on construction of township roads in Gusau town, the state capital.
“We have announced a state of emergency in the education sector and by the grace of God, we will rescue the state from disintegration.
“They are not comfortable with our numerous achievements within the shortest possible time,” he declared.
Recall that the Court of Appeal ruled in favour of the All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate, former Governor Bello Matawalle, cancelling the governorship election in Zamfara state and ordering a rerun in three local governments: Maradun, Birnin-Magaji, and Bukkuyum.
