SDP: Big crowd welcomes Wadada into party

A big crowd welcomed Ahmed Wadada, a former member of the House of Representatives as he joined the Social Democratic Party, from the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Nasarawa state,


Traffic in Keffi was almost at a standstill on Monday during his defection rally to the Social Democratic Party (SDP).


Wadada, along with thousands of supporters, marched from Keffi Flyover Bridge in Keffi local government area of the state before moving into Keffi township.


The rally caused traffic gridlock for many hours at the ever busy Keffi/Akwanga Federal highway and on major roads in Keffi where Wadada and his teeming supporters passed through.


In an interview with newsmen, Wadada notified his supporters and other locals of his intention to contest for the Nasarawa West Senatorial District seat at the Senate at the forthcoming general elections in 2023.

He said the move will actualize his dream of giving them impactful representation at the National Assembly.


Wadada, who said he was optimistic of victory, said aside initiating people-oriented legislation in the Senate once elected, he plans to initiate projects that will have direct impact on the lives of the people so as to empower them and change their lives for good.


“The kind of projects I have for the people are the same kind of projects I carried out for the people when I was a member of the House of Representatives, which is why they are all in my support.


“I have added value to human capacity. I represented them very well in the past and helped bring civilisation to the people,” he said.



He expressed delight over the massive support he received from the locals and added that he feels challenged to do much more for the people of the senatorial district if elected to represent them.

“I feel fulfilled and much more challenged because for God to bless me with this level of support, it is imperative for me to do much more than I have done before,” he said.


He explained that he left the APC due to what he called the controversy that trailed the recently-conducted Nasarawa West Senatorial District primary election which he described as illegal and undemocratic before he withdrew from the contest.


Jonathan Gaza, a two-term serving member of the House of Representatives representing Karu/Keffi/Kokona Federal Constituency, also defected to SDP alongside Wadada. (NAN)
