The Southern Kaduna All Progressives Congress (APC) Youth Stakeholders’ Forum has called on  Governor Nasir el-Rufai, the political leader in the state, Senator Uba Sani, party leaders and all relevant stakeholders to consider Dr. Manzo Daniel Maigari, former Commissioner for Agriculture and later Ministry for Commerce, for the position of a running mate to Sen Sani.

Engr. Nehemiah Handan, chairman of the group in a statement said, “We call on His Excellency, Malam el-Rufai, our political leader in the State; Distinguished Senator Uba Sani, our party leaders and all relevant stakeholders to consider Dr. Manzo Daniel Maigari, who served as Commissioner for Agriculture and later Ministry for Commerce, for the position of a running mate to Sen Sani.

“Dr. Manzo is a true son of Kaduna state who has been tested and trusted, a technocrat, an employer of labour, philanthropist whose love for humanity and nation-building has continued to propel him to work harder for the betterment of the Nigerian society.”

The group noted that as a former commissioner who served in two ministries, he facilitated the electrification of three communities; massive intervention in the ginger value chain that supported 60,000 youths; setting up of an ICT Hub by his company, Greysoft Technologies, to empower youths with digital skills, thus making them globally competitive, including providing jobs to our teeming populace, and donating relief materials worth millions of naira to no fewer than 10,000 Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs), among several others. 

“On the above basis and his love to serve, the The Southern Kaduna APC Youth Stakeholders’ Forum hereby recommends that our Leader, Governor el-Rufai, our able APC Governorship Candidate, Leaders of our Party in Kaduna State, among critical stakeholders, to endorse Dr. Manzo to serve as the running mate to Distinguished Senator Uba Sani. His   candidature as running mate to our governorship candidate will guarantee the victory of our Great Party in not only the state but in Southern Kaduna,” the statement explained. 

According to the statement, Kaduna State has been grappling with challenges of development even before the coming of the current administration despite challenges posed by insecurity, among others, saying that they are concerned with the need for sustainability of government policies aimed at ensuring the development of the state and continuation of the strides recorded by the el-Rufai government.

The group opined, “Dr Manzo remains the only APC chieftain in Southern Kaduna that can lead the charge to galvanise our supporters who have tremendously benefitted from his leadership in order to attain ultimate victory for our Party in the forthcoming governorship election.”

The group, however, congratulated Senator Uba Sani, the senator representing Kaduna Central Zone, over his emergence as the Kaduna State APC governorship candidate of the party for the 2023 polls, noting that the victory did not come as a surprise as he has always placed the welfare of the people as a topmost agenda. 

“We also congratulate Governor Nasir Ahmad el-Rufai over the peaceful and successful conduct of party primaries in the state,” the statement stated.
