He said, everybody bears witness that things are not going in the right direction in Jigawa state, and there is an urgent need for patriotic people to make a sacrifice for emancipating the state, which he is offering himself.
Mustapha who is the son of Jigawa strong man and also one of the PDP founding fathers, Alhaji Sule Lamido, maintained that, if he wins the election, he will operate an all-inclusive government that will be built upon consensus, consultation, listening to suggestions, and good ideas in line with PDP philosophy.
The gubernatorial aspirant then solicited the support of all PDP members in the state to actualize his ambition of becoming the party gubernatorial flag bearer for the 2023 general election.
He, however, told the thousands of his supporters and PDP members who gathered to witness the formal declaration that, he is ready for consensus and will remain an obedient party member at all levels, at all times.
