By Martins Abochol

Chief Kola Abiola, Presidential candidate of the People’s Redemption Party (PRP) in the 2023 presidential election urged the party to deploy party faithful as party agents during the fourth coming bye-elections.

Abiola, who advised on Sunday while addressing his party supporters in Jalingo stressed the need to deploy only the party core loyalists to serve as agents to various polling units to curtail bought-over syndrome.

He expressed optimism that PRP would win the Jalingo, Yorro, and Zing House of Representatives by-election if the supporters worked harder and would protect their votes.

He recalled that the party took second position in the 2023 election for the very seat and promised to support the party with funds and other logistics to enable them to win the election.

” As you can see, we have come from Abuja to support you to secure this victory in the coming election.

“We will support you with logistics to enable you to work efficiently and my advice is that the state executive council should deploy only party faithful to serve as agents in the various polling units.

“This will make it difficult for other political parties to buy our agents for rigging elections.

” I therefore request that you vote for our party’s candidate for the Jalingo, Yorro, and Zing House of Representatives seat in the fourth coming bye-elections.

” This is the only opportunity for you to get your own who shall represent you adequately in the national assembly,” he said.

Earlier, Mallam Abdullahi Maikasuwa, Chairman of the state chapter of the party commended the national leadership of the party for taking its time to visit the party in the state.

Maikasuwa, however, solicited financial support for the candidate of the party in the fourth coming bye-elections.

He also solicited financial assistance to enable the party to carry out its responsibilities in the state.

He eulogized the party supporters to ensure that the party was not shortchanged during the election.

The chairman promised to deploy all ward executives of the party to serve as agents during the bye-elections.

In his remark, Mallam Mansur Babanyaya, candidate of the party in the fourth coming bye-election thanked the national leadership of the party for their visit to the state.

Babanyaya said that their visit had brought a tremendous boost to the party. 

He promised the party supporters that he would carry everybody along if he won the election.

He also promised that unemployment, insecurity, and poverty issues would be his areas of priority.
