Yakassai, others join PRP in Kano



Salihu Tanko-Yakasaiformer special adviser to Kano State Governor Abdullahi Gantuje, and two others; Imran Jino and Ibrahim Inna have joined the People’s Redemption Party (PRP).

The PRP national chairman, Mr. Falalu Bello, welcomed the trio into the party’s fold, at the party’s secretariat in Abuja on Friday.

He said that they had already registered as full members of the party.

The Nigerian News Agency reports that Salihu, a former All Progressives Congress (APC) member, is the son of Alhaji Tanko Yakasai, a renowned politician and founding member of the Arewa Consultative Forum (ACF).

Upon receiving the new entrants, Bello said that the party was open to welcoming people who shared the dream and principles of the PRP.

“The PRP is the oldest party in Nigeria formed since 1978.

“We assure them and their supporters that they are bona fide members of the party as of today, that they are entitled to all the privileges of the party and are equally bound by the rules and regulations of the party.

“It is a two-way traffic; Whatever the rights and responsibilities that the party’s consultation gives to a member, from this moment on it is binding for all,” said Bello.

Responding on behalf of the new members, Yakasai said that it was a great day for them as they were formally welcomed.

Yakasai said, “For a while, we have been admiring the People’s Redemption Party from afar.

“We are aware of the principles of the party, the founding fathers of the party like the late Abubakar Rimi, the late Balarabe Musa and the current national chairman of the party.

“Mr. Bello, the national president has an intransigent character; this is one of the qualities that attracted us to the party.

“Many people will wonder why it took us so long to join the PRP even though the party is 44 years old since its formation.

“In the past, in our political naivete, we were more interested in following people. Unfortunately, we don’t look at the match or the platform and look deeply into their manifestos.

“But after deep reflection, we looked inward and looked at the PRP manifesto and found that the party is the only platform that could save this country from its challenges.”

He assured the party leadership that they would inject fresh ideas and proposals that would add value to the party.

“I call on all party members to look at the future of the party and put the interest of the party first above all other interests.

“It is important for us to be united and remain committed to the comprehensive development of the country,” he said.

Meanwhile, the PRP will hold its National Convention on Saturday, April 2.
