The Niger State chapter of the All Progressives Congress, APC, has inaugurated 22 out of 24 directorates of the Umar Mohammed Bago Gubernatorial Campaign Council ahead of the forthcoming general elections in the country.
Bago, while inaugurating the campaign council in Minna, urged members to work together in unity without apportioning blame at one another to ensure the party wins at all levels in the state.

“Do your best humanly possible and no fault finding because no one is perfect. We have just a few days until the elections. Be patient with one another, share ideas and use your tremendous experiences to win the forthcoming elections with ease, because you are our field commanders. Please, do everything to make us win,” Bago advised.
