Ahead of 2023 general elections next year, Kaduna State governorship candidate of the New Nigeria People’s Party (NNPP) Senator Suleiman Hunkuyi has lambasted the All Progressive Congress (APC) in Nigeria and Kaduna in particular, stressing that they have lost the elections already, given the magnitude of failure in the system.
Hunkuyi pointed out that the Muslim-Muslim presidential and governorship ticket in Kaduna State is a sure way for APC to lose the general election.
Speaking with newsmen in Kaduna, the representative of Kaduna North Senatorial District in the 8th National Assembly, maintained that the people’s goodwill and trust will guarantee himself and other candidates on his party victory in the 2023 general elections.
According to Hunkuyi, “structures assist in winning elections, but structures alone can’t win elections, but good will does, the people’s goodwill can guarantee victory for any party any day and 2023 elections will be a competition of goodwill”.
On the same faith ticket, he said, “For me, I recognise the cosmopolitan nature of Nigeria and Kaduna State. So I won’t do that. In any case, I want APC to lose election and the Muslim-Muslim ticket is the sure way to lose election, and this religious fanatism will not sail through in 2023.”
On insecurity, Senator Hunkuyi bemoaned the poor strategizes of the government.
According to him, “security is community base, they removed community leaders and district heads, who had before now, an eye on the problem and guaranteed local intelligence. If I am a governor, I won’t hand over security to a commissioner. The responsibility of the government is to secure the people and the territory. One of the best options in this situation is to stop the budget and prioritize security, through community policing. We are applying the right things wrongly.”
