7 Governorship candidates in Kaduna State have thrown their weight behind the candidate of the People’s Democratic Party, Isah Ashiru, in a bid to defeat the All Progressives Congress in the March 11 governorship election.
The Governorship candidates were those of the Youjg Progressive Party (YPP), Action Alliance (AA), Allied People’s Movement (APM), Action People’s Party (APP), All Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA) National Rescue Movement (NRM) and Zenith Labour Party (ZLP).
While addressing a press conference in Kaduna on Monday, Chairman of the rescue and rebuild gubernatorial candidates forum, Ambassador Sanin Yaya said after due consultations with their members and supporters across the State, they have resolved to join forces with the PDP candidate to uproot the All Progressive Congress (APC) that has inflicted so much pains on Kaduna people.
The Governorship candidates said, “today, we wish to announce our support and loyalty to RT. Hon. Isah Muhammad Ashiru Kudan, the gubernatorial candidate of the PDP.”
“We took this decision after extensive consultation with our party members as well as the good people of Kaduna State. The decision is bone out of our genuine desire to have one indivisible state irrespective of tribal or religious differences, and we are confident that Isah Ashiru Kudan is the only candidate that will unify the State.”
“These can be seen from the manner of his campaign which is aimed at building Kaduna State, and as well from the selection of his running mate which has given fair representation to both Christians and Muslims who are the two major stakeholders in the State.”
