The North-West zone of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), says it will “capture’’ that geopolitical zone in the 2019 general elections.
Mr Joseph Gumbari, Secretary, North-West zone of the party, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Tuesday in Jos that the defections from the ruling APC to the PDP had strengthened the later to regain the zone it lost in the 2015 polls.
“Sokoto is already in the kitty; Kano is within grasp while Kaduna and Jigawa are `practically’ back to the fold.
“Zamfara people are feeling neglected. They have continued to express their disappointment and have vowed to show their anger during the polls in 2019.
“We are also taking the battle to President Muhammadu Buhari’s home in Katsina State where we are not doing badly. We got more than 60,000 votes during the senatorial bye-elections in his constituency last week which is a good showing.
“There is some cause for celebration, but we are not taking anything for granted. We are still working for the return of more people that made us thick before they derailed in 2015,’’ Gumbari, a former member of the National Assembly, said.
