The All Progressives Congress (APC) Senator-elect for Katsina Central Senatorial District, Abdul’aziz Yar’Adua, has assured the people of the zone of delivery on his campaign promises.
Yar’Adua, who toured the 11 Local Government Areas that constitute his senatorial district, said the visit was to thank them for the election victory.
This was contained in a statement made available to newsmen on Thursday in Abuja by Mr Abubakar Umar, a legal practitioner and member of the APC in the state.
Yar’Adua said the visit was to show appreciation to the people on behalf of the President-elect, Bola Ahmed Tinubu; Katsina State Governor-elect, Dr. Dikko Radda and his humble self.
“The tour, which started on Tuesday, 28th of March to Saturday,1st of April, 2023 across the local governments, was to express gratitude and appreciation to the people who stood firm to see that the APC emerged victorious in the just-concluded elections and to assure them of our commitments in making sure that the campaign promises are prioritised.
“The tour involved meeting with traditional rulers, party EXCOS and stakeholders from each local government,” he said.
The senator-elect, a retired Lt.-Col. in the army and younger brother to late President Umaru Yar’Adua, said it was imperative for him to visit his constituents just as he did before the elections to let them know that they had made the right choice.
On his part, Umar said the visit was a tip of the iceberg out of what the lawmaker-elect had in store for the people.
He said: “Hopefully, this practice of holding townhall meetings will be a continuous one as it afford the people the opportunity to interact with their elected representatives and voice their concerns.”
Sani Baba, a resident of Batsari Local Government in the state, thanked the senator-elect for the engagement.
The senator-elect was awarded a certificate of merit at Kaita Local Government Area by representative of the National Youth Council of Nigeria, Comrade Aliyu Kaita.
