Kaduna State Chairman of Labour Party (LP), Hon. Awual Taboki, has made a startling revelation, saying that Kaduna State Government is leaving the state with over N4 billion debt.
Hon. Taboki made the revelation Wednesday in remarks, while addressing supporters at the Presidential campaign rally of LP candidate, Mr. Peter Obi, and his running mate, Datti-Ahmed, at Ahmadu Bello Stadium (ABS), Kaduna State.
He said “Your Excellency, we want to change the change in Kaduna. Your Excellency, as Governor of Anambra State, you left about N70 billion in the account of the state.
“Your Excellency, now they are going to leave over N4 billion debt in Kaduna State. Your Excellency, you left dollars in the state of Anambra. Your Excellency, they are leaving debt of over N400 million dollars in Kaduna State. That’s why these people are here to change the change,” he said, and asked supporters, if they want to change the change. “Do you want to change the change,?” “Yes,” the supporters responded.
Also in her remarks, wife of the Vice Presidential candidate of the LP, Mrs. Datti-Ahmed, urged the supporters not forget the reasons for the emergence of Mr. Peter Obi as presidential candidate of the party, pointing out thus: “Let’s not forget what this is all about – the 2023 election is election for the survival,” she said.
She also spoke on security situation in Kaduna State, adding, “I remember when insecurity started happening so much in Kaduna State. And all who call it out were called liars; we were attacked and labeled.
“Many people have been killed. No Nigerian is more Nigeria than any Nigerian; every live must be secured. Whether you are in southern Kaduna or northern Kaduna, your life must be safe, and we must have a president, who the bus stopped at his table, who will take responsibility.
“I now handover to the woman, Mrs. Magret Obi, who, indeed, will also ensure the bus stop at his table and her husband take the responsibility.”
In his remarks, the National Secretary of LP, Umar Farouk, praised the mammoth crowd of supporters of Obi-Datti and described them as “organic followers.”
According to him, the APC has had their campaign rally in the stadium, but honestly, has not had the kinds of organic crowed Obi had, as well as PDP campaign rally in Kaduna State.
The wife of the Presidential candidate, Mrs. Margret Peter Obi, who collaborated her running mate, Mrs. Datti-Ahmed, said she sincerely appreciated the huge supporters’ turn of people, especially women and youths, saying, “A New Nigeria is possible.”
