The campaign directorate of Jigawa gubernatorial candidate on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Alhaji Mustapha Sule Lamido, has condemned what it described as the barbaric act of illegality of pulling down its billboards.

The cowardly act was   allegedly perpetrated by the supporter of the All Progressive Congress (APC) in Hadejia city.

A press statement issued and signed by Comrade Umar Kyari Jitau Madamuwa, deputy  director, media and publicity of Santuraki campaign directorate, said the negative political  behavior in this era of developing Nigeria can be equated to the dark age of politics of the 16th century. 

‘’We want to remind  APC  and its leadership  in the  state  of the recent peace  accord signed by political  parties  and their presidential candidates in Abuja which they  also  attended  were bidding on all parties  and their members.”

It said  APC in Jigawa  state, based on  the realities on  ground  has lost hopes and that explains why it was difficult for the party to commence  writing its handing over note.

The statement added that  successful outing of their presidential
candidate,  Alhaji Atiku Abubakar,  and their  gubernatorial candidate, Alhaji Lamido, Santurakin Dutse, during their  recent visit to Hadejia city  confirmed  the PDP’s  preparedness  to take over Jigawa state in 2023.

‘’We are appealing to our supporters to remain  calm  and law abiding as all necessary measures  are being taken  to avoid  the repeat of the negative act,” the party said.
