Asma'u Halilu, Kaduna


The Kaduna State Governorship Candidates Forum has reiterated its support for Governor Nasiru El-Rufai’s new tenure in office.

The Chairman of the Forum Auwwal Aliyu said in a statement and made available to Voice of Nigeria in Kaduna.

Aliyu said that the governorship candidate’s forum, 2019 which has 30 persons in number with 49 political party Chairmen from different political parties have pledged to remain loyal to Governor El-Rufai’s re-election as the Governor of Kaduna State for the next four years.

“We have also resolved to follow-up on his support to anywhere legally possible if need be in ensuring that the vote and support of good people of Kaduna is not truncated by anyone or group of few selfish people.”

It is against this background that the forum thus advises those trying to make up fictitious figures of support from political parties and non existing candidates to hold their peace and come to reality of God’s making.

“The collective will of the good people of the state was expressed without cognisance of our differences of any sort which transcends to the peace that we enjoy today even to the aftermath of the elections.

”This to us is an indication that democracy has not only come to stay in the state, but in our country Nigeria at large,” he said.

The Chairman therefore congratulated the winners of the elections and also advised people to perceive the entire elections as a win-win situation to everyone that contested the election from which ever platform.

“While to those that were victorious, we desire and advice them to be magnanimous in victory knowing fully that it is God that gives power to whosoever he wishes.

“We also congratulate Gov Nasiru El-Rufai for inviting all to jointly work towards salvaging Kaduna in his acceptance speech, saying it’s a new day in Kaduna,” he said.
