A chieftain of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), in Sokoto State, Alhaji Dodo Oroji, has felicitated with Gov. Aminu Tambuwal on his emergence as the Chairman of the Nigerian Governors’ Forum (NGF).

In a statement he issued on Sunday in Abuja, Oroji also congratulated Tambuwal on his appointment as the Director-General of the PDP presidential campaign council.

The chieftain said that the dual positions were a good omen for the party during the forthcoming general polls and beyond.

Oroji said that Tambuwal boasts of tremendous wealth of experience to turn around the fortunes of the forum for the better.

According to him, the development will translate into the sustainable provision of the direly needed dividends of democracy to Nigerians.

He described Tambuwal as ”an Iconic and patriotic leader whose penchant for honesty, transparency and accountability is

Oroji further expressed optimism that the new NGF chairman would bring the desired unity and cooperation amongst the Governors of the country.

He, therefore, called on his colleagues to render the necessary support, synergy and comraderie to move Nigeria to enviable heights.

Oroji acknowledged ”the colossal infrastructural development engineered by the Sokoto State Governor in the Seat of the Caliphate.”

In a related development, Oroji said the appointment of Tambuwal as the Director-General of the PDP presidential campaign council for the 2023 polls was a welcome development.

Oroji said, ”the former Speaker of the House of Representatives has the midas touch to clinch victory for the party’s candidates at all levels.”

He also described Tambuwal as a bridge builder, with long standing connections across Nigeria and the diaspora.

“I am therefore of the strong belief that the party is set for victory at all levels and we will collectively work to ensure that by the special grace of the Almighty Allah,” Oroji added.

Meanwhile, Alhaji Abdullahi Yelwa, Chairman, Northern Broadcast Media Owners Association, has called on political parties and their candidates to ensure equity in the patronage of broadcast media stations in the North as campaigns are set to commence.

Yelwa who is the founder and chairman of Caliphate Radio and
Television, made the call in a statement he issued on Sunday in Abuja.

Yelwa said: ”We note with deep concern the tendency of some political actors to prioritise the use of a few Lagos-based television stations for political messaging in the North.

“Political education and mobilisation in the North are carried out through radio and local television stations that speak in the Indigenous languages of the North.

”The Northern electorate forms his or her political opinion by listening to the radio that often broadcast in his native language.

”He neither speaks English nor has the electricity or subscription to power TV sets to listen to campaign messages coming from Lagos”

He, therefore, called on all the presidential candidates participating in the 2023 presidential election to avail themselves of the services of the services of the members of the association.

”The Association has over 100 NBC licenced radio and television stations and broadcast in over 30 major languages widely spoken in the North.

”They include Hausa, Fulfulde, Kanuri, Bachama, Tiv, Igala, Yoruba, Nupe, Gwari, Angas, pidgin, idoma, Igbirra, and the likes,” Yalwa said. (NAN)
