Former chairman of the Kwara State Universal Basic Education Board (SUBEB), Alhaji Ladi Hassan has joined the gubernatorial race in the state for the 2019 election even as he urged the electorate on the collection of the Permanent Voters Card (PVC).
Hassan equally appealed to the people of the state to make use of the remaining days for the closure of continuous voters registration exercise to register and obtain their PVCs.
This, he noted, became necessary to enable them perform their civic responsibility in next year’s general elections.
The former chief of staff under the administration of Dr Bukola Saraki in the state, made this known yesterday while fielding questions from journalists on his desire to vie for the governorship ticket of the Peoples Democratic Party in the state.
According to him, it is only through PVCs that Nigerians can elect credible leaders of their choice that would be committed to the wellbeing of the masses.
Ladi Hassan, explained that his interest in the governorship ticket of the PDP was as a result of his desire to run inclusive government, embark on people’s oriented programmes and offer quality leadership.
He therefore appealed to the people of the state to support his governorship ambition to foster the unity, progress and development of the state.
The former commissioner for health in the state reportedly declared his ambition to run for the exalted office to members of PDP at Magaji Ngeri ward and his political associates, last week.
