Mohammed Aminu in Sokoto
The Chairman of the Northern Senators Forum, Senator Aliyu Wamakko, has cautioned the youth in Sokoto State against fomenting violence before and after the 2019 polls.
Wamakko gave the advice yesterday, when the 300 former Special Assistants who recently resigned from their positions under the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP)- led Sokoto State Government, paid him
a Sallah homage at his residence in Sokoto.
He stressed the need for them to refrain from any act capable of breaching peace in the state.
According to him, no society can achieve progress in an atmosphere of chaos, hence the need for them to shun violence.
“Peace is a veritable tool for national development and without it no nation could prosper to greater heights,”Wamakko said.
The lawmaker who represents Sokoto North senatorial district, reminded the people of the state of the need to endeavour to collect their Permanent Voters’ Cards ( PVCs).
He maintained that doing so was the only way all the eligible voters in the state would not be disenfranchised during the 2019 general elections.
Wamakko lauded the former aides for their resolve to
remain in the All Progressives Congress(APC), despite Governor Aminu Tambuwal’s defection to the PDP.
Earlier, the Chairman of the forum, Alhaji Abdullahi Abubakar, told
the senator that they were at his residence to pledge their
unflinching loyalty to President Muhammadu Buhari and the APC.
He said the former special assistants were in support of all the programmes and policies of President Buhari.
