The key to inclusive governance in Kaduna is PVC, Ayuba



Permanent Voters Card (PVC) is the key to inclusive administration in the state, according to Dr. John Ayuba, Mr. Isah Ashiru’s running mate in the PDP race for governor of Kaduna State.
This was said by Ayuba, a former finance commissioner for the state, in Kaduna at a dialogue with the Southern Kaduna Journalists Forum.

In order to determine which positions would be up for election in the general elections of 2023, he urged the populace to turn out in large numbers and register for their cards.
According to him, Ashiru’s candidacy offered a chance for inclusive administration that would provide equal opportunities for every person of the state, regardless of religion or ethnicity.

He explained that Ashiru’s strong relationships to the local populace and his influence over rural communities were the reasons the Southern Kaduna people were stuck with him.
If given the chance, he claimed, Ashiru and the PDP would run an inclusive, open government that was gender-sensitive.

“Ashiru was part of the success stories of Sen. Ahmed Makarfi era from 1999 to 2007, who worked hard to close the divide between northern and southern parts of the state.
“He has maintained his ties with the people of Southern Kaduna, and we have confidence that he has our interest at heart and will work for the interest of all in the state.

“We will work to improve our voting strength in southern part of the state and push for the support of the PDP to deliver good and inclusive governance to people.
“We are confident that he will build bridges to connect the people of the state to together and work as a united front for socio-economic development of the state,” he said.

He said that young people made up 65% of the electorate and encouraged the media to rally the populace behind the party because of its commitment to fairness and inclusive governance.

The meeting’s goal, according to Mr. Ango Bally of Invicta FM, who spoke on behalf of the forum, an interest organization, was to get to know the deputy governorship candidate.

Bally commended Ayuba from the state’s Zangon Kataf Local Government Area for being chosen as Ashiru’s running mate and asked him to do a good job of serving the Southern Kaduna people if voted to parliament.

While the populace yearned for change, he asserted that the party needed to show its sincerity if it was to seize governmental control and offer competent representation.

People would be eager to support the PDP, according to Mr. Luka Binniyat of Epoch Times, but the party has yet to persuade them that it is prepared to usurp power from the APC.

According to Binniyat, the party needed to show that it was capable of seizing control and implementing sound governance.

He advised the PDP, which is the main challenger to the All Progressive Congress (APC), to step up their game or risk losing the 2023 elections once more.

The PDP received more than 500,000 votes from residents of southern Kaduna in the 2019 General Elections, but just 263,3440 votes from residents of the northern zone, according to Mr. Bomba Dauda, Publisher of Gurara Accord.

According to Dauda, the governorship candidate needs to mobilize support from his area to match what the residents of Southern Kaduna are doing for the party in order to win the 2023 election. (NAN)
