2019: Dankwambo to prioritize security if elected president
Governor of Gombe State and PDP presidential aspirant, Ibrahim Dankwambo, said the issue of insecurity will top the agenda of his administration if elected.
According to him, any government that fails in securing the lives of its citizens is not capable of leading them.
He urged the Benue people to support his presidential bid saying when elected, he will prioritize security of all Nigerians and also take the economy of the country to a higher level.
Dankwambo made the statement in Government House, Makurdi when he visited Governor Ortom and members of the state chapter of the PDP.
“I have never seen this level of insecurity that Nigerians have experienced under the Buhari administration in recent times,” he said.
He told Benue delegates at the PDP Secretariat that he will put first the security of lives of Nigerians if given Buhari's job.
He promised to champion a prosperous economy that would further empower the youths and women towards a positive improvement of the livelihood.
Dankwambo also assured that he would never connive in cheating Nigerians and appealed to delegates to consider other positive factors in the candidates above 'money bags' in selecting the party's flagbearer in the forthcoming presidential primaries .
Responding, Governor Samuel Ortom lamented the drift of Nigeria from global democratic practices and insisted that Nigerian leaders must rise to correct the trend.
"Those pretending and keeping quite should know there is a day of reckoning and we must all speak up to sustain democracy in Nigeria. In the midst of persecution, we will not be deterred because we were elected to protect our people.”
