The new governor of Kaduna State, Mal. Uba Sani, has been enjoined to deliver an inclusive leadership and embrace the diversity of the populace of the state.
He was given the advice Tuesday by the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), Kaduna State Chapter, after taken over the mantle of leadership of Kaduna State, on 29th May 2023.
CAN, in a statement signed by its State Chairman, Rev John Joseph Hayab, appealed to the governor not to administrate with needless divisive policies.
Accordingly, CAN also called on the governor to work with all stakeholders to build the state, and not to toe the lines of making adversaries but build bridges of love, friendship, and inclusion that will lead to unity and, ultimately, the core value of an organized society.
CAN also declared that, “It is a sign of weakness and inferiority complex for any leader to combat and destroy anyone, who does not agree with their view.
“CAN will consistently pray, advice, and support any administration in the state for the development of everyday lives and will speak truth to power.
“To CAN, the new governor’s pledge – to address insecurity – is a welcome development, given that Kaduna people have suffered so much at the hands of bandits and terrorists,” it stated.
The body appealed to all peace-loving persons and organizations in the state to join hands with the Governor Uba Sani to make the noble desire of bringing a lasting solution to insecurity a reality.
According to CAN, “The task of building a unified Kaduna is vital and looks forward with great expectations for a new lease of life in Kaduna in areas of security, education, unifying the people of the state, and providing equal opportunities for all, irrespective of religious or ethnic differences.”
