On Tuesday, Hon. Jonathan Asake, a former member of the House of Representatives, formally resigned from his position as president of the Southern Kaduna People’s Union, the state’s representative organization for the southern Kaduna people.
In order to run for the position in the 2023 elections, Asake entered the race for governor of Kaduna State on the Labour Party platform, StechiteGist media gathered.
The candidate for governor stated he resigned from his position as head of SOKAPU at the organization’s secretariat in Kaduna in order to heed the clarion cry of the vast majority of people to run for Sir Ibrahim Kashim Government House in 2023.
“What you’ve been hearing is now confirmed,” he continued, “that I’ve heeded a clarion cry by the people and by the bigger people of Kaduna State that I should run for governor in 2023.
“I have heeded this call having observed what has been happening for a very long time within my term as SOKAPU President, and I have seen the way insecurity has taken over the entire State, criminals freely crossing our borders and coming into our State and killing, destroying our farmlands, and get away with it, and I feel leadership can fixed those things.
If elected, he says he is prepared to put in a lot of effort, present himself to the state’s citizens, and provide inclusive leadership that will instill fair play, justice, and equity for all citizens.
“When we have leadership that upholds fair play, justice, and equity, it won’t matter where you’re from, your religious affiliation, or the area you’re from; only quality leadership will matter, and coming from SOKAPU as their leader, I want to extend that kind of leadership style to the entire State.”
In the meantime, Mr. Dio Maisamari, Asake’s vice, has taken over as the new SOKAPU president.
