The Sokoto State chapter of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), has inaugurated the Local Government Caretaker Committees for all the 23 local government councils in the state.
It also said the party was battle ready and determined to win the 2015 polls in the state.
Speaking during the inauguration Â of the Committees at the party headquarters in Sokoto, State Chairman of the PDP Caretaker Committee, Alhaji Abdullahi Mohammed Shantali, said the local government caretaker committees were saddled with the task of forming 16-man caretaker committee in their respective wards.
According to him, they were also saddled with the responsibility of uniting and bringing back to PDP those members that defected to other parties.
He explained that the Committee would also embark on registration of members in the 244 wards of the state, organise and conduct congresses to elect party officials at wards, local government and state levels.
“Today’s inauguration is part of the fulfilment of the responsibility which we are charged upon by the national headquarters of the PDP.
“We believe that in order to have effective and successful registration exercise, we must have competent field workers who can carry out the exercise effectively and implement the activities that may be assigned to them by the State Caretaker Committee,” he said.
Shantali maintained that the PDP still commands huge supporters in the state and was poised to win the 2015 governorship polls.
He therefore, called on party supporters to continue to be law abiding and work with unity of purpose in order to achieve the desired targets in 2015.
