Also speaking, former member of the Federal House of Representatives, Hon Ahmed Aliyu Wadada, called on the people of the zone to justify their trust in the leadership of Engineer Sule, by ensuring that they turn out enmasse, to vote for the candidates of the APC during the October 6 local government election.
