Senator Nenadi Usman, former Nigeria’s Finance Minister has declared interest to contest for the post of National Secretary, People’s Democratic Party (PDP).
Senator Usman served as finance Minister between 2006 – 2007 and represented Kaduna South senatorial zone in the National Assembly.
Usman declared interest to contest in a statement released to appeal to the PDP congress delegates in which she echoed her readiness to serve.
“Dear Distinguished Delegates,
It is not borne out of sheer ambition, but it comes straight from my innermost conviction that I can serve our great Party, the PDP, diligently, with wit and intelligence, as National Secretary.
I come prepared. Academically qualified, I’ve served my home State as a teacher, grassroots mobiliser, youth mentor, and Commissioner, among others.
As a Minister at the Federal level and a Senator of the Federal Republic. I have remained steadfast in my belief in, and loyalty to our great Party since 1998 when the Party was founded.
I am resilient that our tomorrow will be better. I desire to be part of the Team that will not only redeem our Party, but shoot us back into relevance as the Party at the centre.
I believe I can do it, if you give me your support to run and serve as National Secretary of our great Party.
Thank you for your anticipated endorsement.
I am, your sister,
Senator Nenadi Usman”
