SOUTHERN KADUNA PLEAD FOR MINISTERIAL SLOT
We write with humility and sense of responsibility commending His Excellency Mr President for your sacrificial and visionary leadership. Your landmark achievements and giant strides recorded in all sectors of the economy have transformed our country into purpose driving society.
This goes to underline your uniqueness to positive leadership Permit us Mr President to urge you never to be distracted by over zealous and power thirsty politicians whose selfish interest cannot take away the successes recorded by your transformative administration. S
ir,the good people of Southern Kaduna have been in the forefront of supporting your administration. This was possible due to the legacy and Mark of honour to our political hero and leader late Sir Patrick Ibrahim Yakowa, CON for this has always been his wish,i e absolute loyalty to Mr President and the confidence we have in your leadership. We therefore use this medium to publicly reiterate our unalloyed support to Mr President .
As the father of our Nation , Mr President is aware of the challenges we have passed through since the demise of our late governor Sir Patrick Ibrahim Yakowa and the vacuum created. We have since returned to our marginalized status where political positioning is to our disadvantage. Such marginalization has continued to afflict our people with untold misery, poverty and reproach . Yet this has increased our loyalty and support to your administration.
Based on this Mr President, we appeal and request that in the interest of peace, equity, and social justice, we humbly wish to request for a ministerial slot in your cabinet to balance the Political divide in our dear State Kaduna vis-a-vis North and South .This will give the people of south Kaduna a political sense of belonging and a rallying point towards achieving the ultimate objectives of Mr President .
Mr President Sir, if our request is given a favourable consideration, the Political balancing in Kaduna State will Stand thus: Vice President of the federal Republic of Nigeria, North divide; The Executive Governor of Kaduna State, North divide; Speaker of Kaduna State house of assembly, North divide; Deputy Speaker Kaduna State house of assembly, South divide; Secretary to Kaduna State Government, North divide; Deputy Governor of Kaduna state, South divide.
If given ministerial slot to South divide of Kaduna, the Political equation will be justified in the State, this will further encourage our block votes capacity to the PDP.
Mr President Sir, we need credible rallying points for our people at the federal level. We therefore would like to suggest credible sons and daughters from southern Kaduna .
These individuals are considered worthy and will ensure Mr President’s Objectives in nation building .
