Gombe State Governor, Alhaji Ibrahim Dankwambo, has said that Nigerians have lost confidence in the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari in the country, hence the need for a change of leadership come 2019.
Dankwambo who is the PDP Presidential Aspirant stated this in Jos when he visited the Plateau State Chapter of the PDP to canvas for delegates Votes ahead of the PDP Presidential primaries.
He attributed Nigeria’s economic downturn, rising insecurity and unemployment among others that is lacking in the President Buhari leadership.
Dankwambo insisted that for Nigeria to progress, the right persons must be appointed to head relevant offices without prejudice.
“We will appoint credible hands and not our nephews, in-laws and cousins into office as being a witness today”.
He maintained that the PDP has the best hands for the seat of the President, saying “All the PDP aspirants are better than what we have today in APC because they didn’t know they will get to leadership. They are used to opposition, they are used to propaganda that’s why when they got to power, all they have been doing is propaganda”.
Dankwambo also stressed that he will restore the dignity and supremacy of the party among all other considerations.
He said at the age of 56, he is neither too young or to old to preside over the affairs of the country.
The PDP presidential aspirant said with his wealth of experience in Governance, especially in the financial sector, he is the right person to improve the economy of the country.
He described himself as a faithful party man who has remained in the party despite all the challenges.
Dankwambo said he had been able to address the security challenges facing his state considering the fact that Gombe is surrounded by States facing such challenges.
He described Plateau and Gombe States as brothers and stressed that Plateau has produced Politicians who have contributed immensely to sustaining Democracy in the country.
Dankwambo said he had enjoyed some privileges as a young man growing up and he intends to extend it to other Nigerians when he becomes President
He pledged to revamp the Nigerian socioeconomic landscape and also gives priority to the education sector
