Vice President Namadi Sambo has boasted that he would deliver over two million votes to President Goodluck Jonathan in his home state, Kaduna, in the February 14, 2015 presidential election.
He said he would achieve the feat by virtue of the overwhelming support the Peoples Democratic Party enjoys in the state.
A statement by his spokesman, Umar Sani, on Monday, quoted Sambo as speaking during a meeting of the Kaduna chapter of the PDP held at the Hassan Usman Katsina House, Kawo, Kaduna.
Sambo was further quoted as saying that he expected 100 per cent victory for the party’s candidates in other elective posts including that of the governor.
“Kaduna State PDP is the same and one strong family, and I am happy for the promise they have kept and for the promise they have made to us, that Insha Allah, PDP is Kaduna State and Kaduna State is PDP, and PDP will win the elections come 2015.
“It is only PDP today in Nigeria that has its presence in the state, local government, ward and polling unit level. This representation is full and strong all over the federation,” the statement quoted the Vice President.
H added that the President was delighted that the primary elections held in the state were rancour-free.
“We believe that there are no losers, no winners and no vanquished and everybody will be carried along. Everyone of our party member that participated in our primary agrees that it is only one person that can be a winner and they have agreed to cooperate and work together,” he said.
Meanwhile, the Vice President on Monday collected his Permanent Voter Card with a call to Nigerians to conduct themselves peacefully during and after the 2015 elections.
He collected his PVC at the INEC Distribution Centre located at the Kaduna North Local Government Secretariat, Magajin Gari, Kaduna, Kaduna State.
He was accompanied by the Kaduna State Governor, Alhaji Ramalan Yero, and received by the Kaduna State INEC Resident Electoral Commissioner, Alhaji Haliru Aliyu Tambuwal.
