The Head of religious Committee of the Presidential Campaign Council of the Sokoto State chapter of the Labour Party (LP), Comrade Abubakar Yawale has accused the opposition parties in the state over an alleged plan to attack their Co-coordinator of the Obi/Datti Presidential Campaign Council of the state, Mr Ifeanyi Ezeagu.
Addressing newsmen at a Press Conference in the state, Yawale, who is also the leader of Sokoto State LP Coalition of Support Groups, said from the information they gathered there was a plan to attack their Co-cordinator to disrupt him from the campaign activities in the state.
He said based on the information gathered, the perpetrators of the attack hired armed thugs who will attack Mr Ifeanyi and his business places to cripple his activities and and discourage him from the supports he is offering to residents in the state.
According to him, some people who are jealous of the good work he is doing in the state have been planning to destroy him, and made several balckmails about him, but have not succeeded as people of the state are with him and enjoying the various gestures he is offering to them.
He said Mr Ifeanyi, who spent over 21 years in Sokoto state has contributed immensely to the development of the state through his various investments thereby employing hundred of youths and support the masses in many ways to earn a means of living.
“When he was appointed as Coordinator of the campaign, they sabotage and said that he us not an indigene of the state. While Mr Ifeanyi Ezeagu performed better than many of the indigenes of Sokoto interms of humanity. They succeeded in seeing that has been removed from his position but later realized that he still moves on and they planned to attack him.
“As his close associate and ally, I know him to be in Sokoto for over two decades and has been a good man for the people. All his investments and assets are in Sokoto and he sees Sokoto as his home state. He started as a labourer to this level, so nobody can dare paint him black in the mind of Sokoto people,” he said.
He added that while the matter has been reported to the security for immediate action, their Coordinator “will not be distracted and will continue with the good works he is doing. He is also committed to his primary assignment to deliver the state for Obi/Datti in the coming 2023 elections.”
He urged his supporters, well wishers and good people of the state to remain calm and continue supporting the good jobs of the Mr Ifeanyi who loves the state and it’s people, and always considers it first before any other thing.
