“I am most grateful to the Almighty that I come from a family where philanthropy, human capacity development, and social impact are values that have been instilled in us from a very young age. This opportunity given to me is not just for me but for all of us – and especially for the youth. I will not disappoint you nor put shame on the integrity and dignity of my family pedigree if elected God-willing. Today we are here to seek your support and blessings to vote for us and all APC candidates come to the General Elections”, Shagaya said.
At the final leg of the tour, Chairman Salman Shagaya Foundation, Alhaji Sheriff Shagaya, further enjoined the electorate to cast their votes for all the APC candidates.
