Southern Kaduna political stalwarts, from across different parts of the State, have thrown their support behind the Senator representing the zone, Senator Danjuma Tella La’ah, of the People’s Democrat party (PDP).
Senator La’ah has been described by the supporters as fearless and better for another term, as a well known politician and a businessman from Southern Kaduna, who also fought against banditry and insurgency, among other crimes.
A youth leader, Comrade Victor Bobai Matthew, and convener of ‘100 percent Support Group,’ disclosed this in a statement made available to the media in Kaduna yesterday.
Bobai Matthew stated that, “Senator La’ah is exactly what the PDP needs as a fearless leader and a good team player whose major interest is all about his people.”
Speaking on the recent expression of interest by a former House of Representatives member, Hon. Jagaba Adams Jagaba, to contest Senator La’ah’s seat in 2023, the youth leader said “This is a very serious challenge for Southern Kaduna. We cannot compromise our political leadership for those players that want names and fame.
“As of now, the change in returning Senator La’ah is on the open primary election for the PDP to ensure that only cards carriers of PDP be allowed to elect the candidate of their choice, because the party needs to democratize all its electoral activities this time. The differences between the main contenders will not be as stark.”
Bobai Victor stressed that, “What matters now is that, Southern Kaduna has a winning team in Danjuma La’ah, and there wouldn’t be need to change a winning team.”
Similarly, former member of the Senate, Zego Aziz, said “Senator La’ah’s leadership style has unite his supporters as a result of his fight against banditry and insurgents, others, adding that the campaign for 2023 will be more about issues, not about how many times one is contesting.”
In the same vein, Hon Jeremiah Kantiok, aka “Jerry,” who is former Member, State House of Assembly in Kaduna, from Zonkwa constituency, acknowledged how much it will mean for Southern Kaduna to have Senator La’ah returned.
“La’ah has beautiful projects ahead of him to accomplish, like establishment of the Federal University of Technology Manchok ,State creation, Local Government Autonomy and establishment of security network to reduce insurgency and kidnapping in Southern Kaduna,” he said.
