AUCHI: As part of efforts towards achieving overwhelming victory in this month’s general elections, the people of Etsako West Local Government Area have been urged to vote for all APC candidates during the elections.
Chairman, Etsako West Local Government Council, Hon Barr Hassan Kadiri made the appeal in Auchi, the headquarters of the local government during the APC campaign rallies to wards in the locality
Hon Kadiri who was delighted at the level of supporters that trooped out to welcome the leaders and APC candidates to their wards, he said APC is the party to beat in the next general election in the area adding that other political parties are just like empty vessels that make the loudest noise that should not be taking seriously.
While educating the people on how to vote for APC candidates, the council boss advised the people not to make any mistake of voting any other party or selling their PVCs nor allow themselves to be deceived by sugar-coated politicians who have nothing to offer after the elections.
According to him, with the state government recent award of the Auchi gully erosion site which has been a nightmare to the people and other infrastructural development in and outside the local government area, the people have no better choice than to vote for all the APC candidates as a way to reciprocate the good gesture of the governor, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole.
Hon Kadiri however called on eligible voters who were yet to collect their PVCs to do so before the elections as that is the only way the change everybody is clamouring for can be achieved.
At Ikelebe public field in ward 4, some of the former PDP members who defected to APC were received by the APC State Deputy Chairman, Alhaji Mogaji on behalf of the state chairman.
The defectors included former PDP ward 4 vice-chairman, Mallam Jafaru, assistant secretary, Abu Ahmed among others. The APC wards rallies in the local government area continue.
