Partners for Nasarawa Youths Development, a pro-democracy group, has advised President Muhammadu Buhari to nominate Alhaji Ahmed Wadada into his cabinet in view of his contribution to the success of APC in Nasarawa State.
Idris Salisu, Chairman of the group, who gave the advice on Sunday in Keffi, emphasised the need for Buhari to reward Wadada with a ministerial appointment considering his commitment and passion for the unity and progress of the APC in Nasarawa.
For eight years since 2003, Mr Wadada represented the interest of the people of Keffi, Karu and Kokona Federal Constituency.
Mr Salisu recalled that Wadada, as the Chairman of Nasarawa APC Campaign Directorate in the last general elections, delivered all APC candidates in the 13 Local Governments of the state.
He said Wadada’s tireless efforts led to APC landslide victory at the Presidential, National Assembly and Governorship elections in Nasarawa which was far better than the 2015.
Mr Salisu said Mr Wadada had maintained his status as a grassroots politician, who was always in touch with the people.
He said that Mr Wadada was a man of integrity who believes in the philosophy and leadership style of Buhari.
“We strongly believe that the Buhari led administration is a government of the masses and appointing Wadada as Minister will satisfy the yearnings and aspirations of the people of Nasarawa State.
“As a man who has a genuine concern for his people, Wadada has contributed to the socio-economic welfare of the people of Nasarawa in the areas of healthcare assistance, education and empowerment.
“During the time he represented his people at the Federal House of Representatives for eight years, Wadada pushed for various youth and capacity development projects because he believed the youths are not just the leaders of tomorrow but the catalyst for socio-economic development.
“Wadada is the masses advocate, political messiah, bridge builder, youth hope, voice of the voiceless, most popular and celebrated politician in the history of Nasarawa State,” the chairman added.
