15 Years After, Gwadabe Moves To Unseat Aduda From Senate
Senator Khairat Abdulrazaq Gwadabe is set to stage a comeback to the senate 15 years after, with the clamour of people of the Federal Capital Territory for her return.
Gwadabe, who was in the National Assembly between 1999 and 2003, said she was determined to win the election to give the FCT residents and natives quality leadership and greater sense of representation in the affairs of the country.
“I want to give Abuja people effective representation in the National Assembly and I want to bring in concrete development programmes and services that will change the status quo and launch the people into a new era of good life and wellbeing,” Gwadabe told a press conference in Abuja.
According to her, “I am coming back into politics because the system is changing and we need to reposition Nigeria to play the crucial role assigned to it by God and to justify the crucial position it is occupying in the scheme of things.
“We cannot afford to sit back and allow people who have little or nothing to offer Nigeria and Nigerians to continue to dominate the political space while the nation and its people are suffering due to either dearth of ideas or lack of understanding of the proper roles to play as the representatives of the people of Nigeria.”
The senatorial hopeful who declared her intention on Wednesday in Abuja, said removing the present occupant of the seat, Senator Phillip Aduda, was not a difficult task, as she argued that Nigerians had grown beyond the level of dumping votes on any politician but are able to discern between voting for a party or an individual based on merit and issues.
“For that reason, I am very confident that I will win the FCT senatorial seat and go on to represent the people of that constituency come 2019, “Gwadebe said.
