Former member of the house of Representatives, Rt. Hon. Isa Mohammed Ashiru Kudan of the People Democratic Party has declared his intent to join the guber race in Kaduna state in the forthcoming primaries.
Isa said, “you may all recall that we worked tirelessly during the last General Election in 2019 with me as the Gubernatorial Candidate of the PDP, hence, I express my sincere gratitude to everyone for the opportunity given to me to fly the flag of the party.
While explaining the setback the state has experienced three years after that particular attempt, the aspirant said Kaduna State under the All Progressives Congress (APC) has continued to experience severe setbacks.
“We are all victims of various forms of insecurity like kidnapping, banditry, and violent conflicts which have become most prevalent in the State; in addition to increasing poverty, unemployment, and disharmony among our people.”
“Therefore, a great task ahead of us is to salvage our dear Kaduna State, reunite the people and move the state forward.”
Ashiru said if, given the ticket at the primaries, they will attach priority to security, education, agriculture, health as well as women and youth empowerment, information technology, rural development, and inclusiveness in governance, among others.
“I believe that if given the ticket, we would all work together to win the gubernatorial election come February 2023 so that the PDP government can rescue the State from the current frightening situation. We have done it before and we will do it again, insha Allah.”
He however said considering the wonderful performance of the PDP during the 2021 Local Government Council Elections in Kaduna State and the encouraging manner in which people have been massively joining the party, I can confidently say that the present State Executive Committee under Honorable Felix Hassan Hyet has been steering the ship of our party in the right direction.
