2023: Southern Kaduna Pastors, Christian leaders meet 5 Guber Candidates

…With notable absence of PDP and ADC.

No fewer than three thousand clergy and Christian Leaders from eleven Local Government Areas that make up Southern Kaduna Zone, on Thursday met and interacted with Governorship candidates seeking to govern their State in 2023.

The meeting, which was tagged, ‘Southern Kaduna Pastor’s Congress,’ had five Governorship candidates in attendance, except the candidates of the People’s Democratic Party, PDP, Isa Ashiru, and that of the Action Democratic Congress, ADC, Senator Caleb Zagi, who sent apologies for their inability to attend.

The candidates present included those of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Senator Uba Sani, Action Alliance, AA, Mr. Timothy Adamu, New Nigerian People’s Party, NNPP, Senator Suleiman Othman Hunkuyi, All Progressives Grand Alliance, APGA, Dr. Andrew Duya, and the candidate of Labour Party, LP, Jonathan Asake.

Addressing the gathering, the Chairman, Southern Kaduna Christian Leaders Association (SKCLA), Apostle Dr. Emmanuel Nuhu Kure, said the aim of the gathering was to give the candidates the opportunity to speak with the Christian Leaders directly about their blueprint and take questions where clarifications were needed.

Kure explained that, the move will forestall the possibility of post-election crises that may occur because of misrepresentation of facts.

He appealed to leaders of other faiths to also organise a similar engagement with the Governorship candidates so that they, too, can hear them directly to sensitise their people better.

The SKCLA Chairman pointed out that, “Besides today’s meeting, the engagements will continue, with the hope of selecting three candidates out of all the contestants, who will be presented to Southern Kaduna Christians to pray and choose from.”

All the candidates in attendance took time to explain to the clergymen what they intend to do for the people of the region, and why they should be supported and entrusted with the leadership of Kaduna State in 2023, and they subsequently took time to respond to questions raised.
