Shagari, declared his intention when he met with the PDP leaders in Sokoto, stating that he would focus on the health, agriculture and education sectors if elected.

He also promised to pay special attention to youth and social development, and improve the state’s infrastructure.

The former Deputy Governor, revealed that he is very qualified for the job in respect to his experience as a deputy governor for eight years.

“I have visited practically every village in Sokoto and know the major concerns of the people. What I want is the opportunity to address such concerns,” he said.

Shagari assured the defecting members of equal rights with everyone in the Peoples Democratic Party.

“We welcome all defectors from APC; in fact, we are waiting for more defectors so that PDP can be stronger,” he said.
