”If you give us your votes, I will consolidate and even improve on the good works of distinguished Senator Abubakar Atiku Bagudu, the incumbent Governor and the former Governor, Alhaji Saidu Nasamu Dakingari, who is our campaign DG.
‘Vote massively for APC so that Kebbi State will be one of the states with the highest votes for APC. This can attract more development from the central government,” he averred.
He remarked that teachers in the state and civil servants could testify to his effort in enhancing their welfare, just as over seven million teachers and more than twenty-two million civil servants in the country could also testify to his unwavering commitment to improving their working conditions while he was NUT leader and a labour leader.
Kaura assured the people of the area that as a teacher with many years of working experience, a unionist and a retired civil servant, he would not let them down, assuring that he would fulfil promises made.
According to him, governance was all about bringing development to the people and making sure people are empowered.

”The Kaoje/ Lolo road, Bani to Sanci, Zaria Kala Kala road, if elected, Kaura will do these projects”, he assured.
He said Kauran Gwandu and all APC candidates were people of honour and integrity, therefore a need for people to vote for them.
