2023: Zamfara PDP blasts Osinbajo over visit, says he abandoned state during killings

The Zamfara State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has lampooned  the Vice President Yemi Osinbanjo for visiting t the State ahead of the All Progressives Congress, APC, presidential primary.

The statement was released by by the State PDP deputy chairman, Prof. Kabiru Jabaka during an interview with newsmen.

According to him, the APC presidential aspirant has not visited the state during killings.

“Since all these killings in the State, the Vice President has not paid any condolence visit to commiserate with the people of the State and the relations of those affected by banditry activities in the State, but because of his presidential ambition, he rushed to the State.

“We cannot clap for him because he said that he discussed important issues with the leaders of the APC in the State for a way forward. The Vice President’s visit to the State at this critical moment where banditry has been the order of the day in the State is uncalled for.

“I expected him to visit the State and commiserate with us and not to visit the State for his presidential aspiration, because when we were in trouble, he pretended as if he did not know what was happening in Zamfara State,” he said.

According to Jabaka, over 20,000 Zamfara State secondary school students will not write their WAEC examination this year due to the insurgency that had become uncontrollable, pointing out that the visits of the Vice President to the State has no benefit to the entire people of the State.

“Zamfara state government could not settle over N1.2 billion WAEC and NECO examinations fees for our children this year and the issue of insecurity has become widespread across the State.

“It is surprising that at this critical moment, they used our resources to receive the Vice President for his presidential ambition.
