“PDP is a very democratic party, everyone who is qualified, governors and non-governors alike will have the opportunity to contest,” he added.
He said, “The situation in Northwest is improving. But I want to implore the President to employ competent hands for effective policing of the nation. We also appeal to him to involve young qualified people in security matters. He should make sure that whatever that is due to those at the war front reach them. And we implore him to deploy more sophisticated ICT in tackling security issues in the country.”
