Youths in Kaduna State under the aegis, Youth Coalition of Kaduna State which comprises youths from the three Senatorial zones of Kaduna State has met and resolved to urge Hon. Aminu Abdulfatah to make himself available for the exalted seat of Kaduna State Governor in the forthcoming elections in 2019.
The group that consist of the youth from all nooks and corners of the state observed that the Kaduna state governor, Mallam Nasir-el-Rufai is surrounded by those that knew nothing about Kaduna politics. In a chat with Leadership, Abdullahi Abdulaziz who spoke on behalf of the Group noted that majority of those with the present government are those that their body is in APC but their souls are still with the opposition party, PDP. He said that, ”they are opportunist that care more about their pockets, we cannot sit back and fold our hands and watch APC loose grip in the state because of the personal interest of very few people working with the governor”. “We should stop deceiving ourselves that all is well in Kaduna APC. We, the grassroots politicians knew that all is not well”.
Speaking further, he said, “the youth groups are confident with and harbor hopes and aspirations for Hon. Aminu Abdulfatah. Much of this comes from their belief in him, his integrity, fairness, the fact that he is a renowned and thoroughbred politician, he has also been active in the political arena for more than three decades. Hon. Aminu Abdulfatah exudes truth and justness when entrusted with public governance”.
