The Jigawa chapter of the Peoples Redemption Party (PRP) has adopted President Muhammadu Buhari as its candidate in the Saturday’s Presidential elections.
Dr Shamsuddeen Aujara, PRP’s Deputy Governorship Candidate in the state, disclosed this in a statement in Dutse on Wednesday.
“Although in PRP we don’t have a presidential candidate, we spread our wings to different political positions.
“However, we cannot leave our respected followers and other Nigerians who genuinely believe in progressive change in the vacuum.
“On this, our stand with the presidential election is to adopt and rally behind the APC candidate, President Muhammadu Buhari as our sole candidate.
“We are convinced by the polices and administrative style of the APC-led government at the centre.
“And apart from the presidential election, the PRP will remain firm, strong and active,” Aujara said.
The candidate further advised people of the state to come out en masse and vote in a peaceful manner.
“We ask the good people of Jigawa to come out en masse and vote in peaceful manner, respect rules and regulations and accept the elections outcome as we pray for the best,” he said.
National executives of the party at a crucial emergency meeting, resolved to adopt the PDP Presidential Candidate as its own candidate.
National Publicity Secretary of the Party, Rikki Nwajiofor in a statement issued on Wednesday, said that the decision of the party was based on its resolve to contribute in making Nigeria work again.
The party also officially joined the the Coalition of United Political Parties (CUPP).

“The National and state chapter of the party has been properly positioned to queue behind the decision of CUPP,” the statement read.
