Niger State Governor, Alhaji Abubakar Sani-Bello has expressed optimism for victory at the polls for the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) at all levels in the state at the forth coming general elections.
He said the need to sustain the developmental projects, programmes and policies embarked upon by the ruling party will propel her to victory at the polls in the state.

According to the governor, “our party deserves victory at the polls at all level because the party has proven itself of capability to restore, rekindle, restructure and rejuvenate all sectors and if re-elected, the party will take Niger State to the next level of vast development in all ramifications”.
He then called on all party members and supporters not to relent on their efforts at ensuring victory for the party at next week Presidential and national assembly elections as well as the governorship and state assembly elections slated for March.
The governor reiterated his call for a peaceful conduct before, during and after the electioneering period. “Election should be conducted peacefully. It should not be a do or die affair. We should not turn election to war theatre. The forth
coming elections should be devoid of bloodletting and rancour,” the gover or appealed to electorates.
