Yoruba Solidarity Alliance (YSA) endorses Dankwambo because they believe he is much younger and fresh with new ideas and innovative concepts.
In a statement signed by its coordinator, Adeniyi Femi, the group said Dankwambo is the most marketable presidential material for the PDP for the presidential seat come 2019.
In their words, “what the nation needs at this time of untold economic hardship and insecurity is a much younger President who is fresh with new ideas and innovative concepts, and Dankwambo is the only way out in 2019 especially with his proven achievements.”
Dankwambo is 55-years old.
The group expressed that Nigerians have lost faith in the APC-led Federal Government long ago, while stating that Dankwambo is the only currently known individual who can represent the youths’ interests and that of the Nigerian people.
They added that judging by his proven achievements, renowned performance and integrity, Dankwambo is the only one who can appeal to electorates and defeat President Muhammadu Buhari at the 2019 polls.
The group said: “Nigerians have evidently become disillusioned as a result of countless broken promises of the APC.”
Thus, “only a man of known performance and integrity like Ibrahim Dankwambo can readily appeal to the electorate during the 2019 presidential election.”
The group lamented that at this time when “the ruling party has demonstrated its inability to offer better governance, PDP cannot afford to seek the trust of Nigerians once again with any serial presidential candidate that is bogged down with moral burden and encumbrance of corruption.”
More so, “it is amply evident that the long suffering Nigerians have had enough of gerontocracy while majority of them are prepared to do away with this unworkable idea in 2019.”
Ibrahim Hassan Dankwambo is the incumbent Governor of Gombe State. He was appointed Accountant-General of the Federation on April 20, 2005 and resigned January 2011 to contest for the Governorship seat.
