Gombe APC Stakeholders’ Secretary emerges PRP guber candidate
Addressing a press conference in Gombe Monday morning, Mr. Bello said he left the APC because the party leadership refused to follow the popular process of direct primaries in choosing its flag bearers for next year’s general election.
Mr. Bello, who now flies the flag of Peoples Redemption Party (PRP) for next year’s Gubernatorial election said he emerged as the party’s candidate through affirmation during the party’s State Delegates Conference held on Friday 5th October, 2018 at Abmar Hall, Ashaka road Gombe.
The candidate who expressed the party’s seriousness in the contest to form the next Government in the State assured that the main thrust of the PRP Government will be fighting ignorance, poverty and injustice.
He said, “simply put, human capital development and rule of law would be the PRP administration’s major priority in Gombe State, God willing”.
He said the party, formed in October 1978 under Mallam Aminu Kano had survived much travail including military proscription but that the decision to resuscitate and re-jig the party by a new national leadership under Alhaji Falalu Bello is to give all well meaning Nigerians another platform to give credible leadership with an ideological touch for which it’s predecessors in the defunct NEPU are very well known.
He said the Gombe State Government which prioritize education has not done what will take the people of Gombe State out of mass illiteracy and ignorance saying, nothing has been done on almajiri system as well as mass literacy sector.
