The Campaign Council is headed by the pioneer Chairman of PDP in the state, Alhaji Duniya Bahutu, while Campaign Directorate is headed by Alhaji Nasir Roni.

In his speech at the inauguration of the bodies in Dutse, the governorship candidate of the party in the state, Mustapha Sule Lamido described the campaign council as the supreme advisory body that would guide the activities of the campaign directorate, which is charged with the responsibility of organizing executing all the party’s campaign activities for the forthcoming elections.

Lamido described the task before the bodies as enormous, saying, “There are a lot of expectations on you. Your job is to work for the success of PDP and all the candidates vying for different positions.

“You are to work for the victory of our Presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, the Governorship candidate and his deputy, the national and state assembly candidates.

“Your work does not end, we shall form a formidable government and ensure that we deliver on our campaign promises. On the other hand, the party must that all elected official works for the people and not just for his/her personal interest.

“In this regard, I call on the Jigawa PDP to ensure party loyalty and discipline as well as device means to prevent any one from being above the party.”

The younger Lamido lauded the dynamism and innovation that has been brought into the political activities in the state by the current leadership of the party and charged the Campaign Directorate to follow suit.

According to him, “We must transform our politics to be decent, transparent and innovative. While campaigning, we must be diplomatic, tactical and sensitive to the plight of the suffering people, whose lives have been made worse and miserable due to .bad governance and gross negligence of our current leadership.

“The PDP has been opportune to govern Jigawa state for eight year and the country for 16 years. We have seen the level of transformations that took place during those years. You’ve been among thousands of party faithful to help bring back those years.

“You must, therefore, work to keep our movement strong, focused and united. You must carry everyone along because the incoming government of PDP will not succeed without party unity.”

The PDP flag bearer maintained that, by the time table of the Independent National Electoral Commission, (INEC), the ban on presidential and national assembly elections campaigns would be lifted in a matter of hours.

“This means that you’ll soon get to work. I’ve already released part of my vision for Jigawa state and very soon, the complete manifesto will be made available. I want you to follow my vision, understand it and use it to campaign for the PDP.”

Bahutu, who responded on behalf of other members of the campaign council, assured the party’s candidate and other members of the PDP of working vigorously towards returning the party to power both at the state and national levels.
