The management of Privilege Magazine has said that the defection of the Executive Chairman of Chikun LGA Kaduna state, Hon. Salasi Nuhu Musa from People’s Democratic Party (PDP) to All Progressives Congress (APC), will attract development to the grassroots.
The Director, News and Current Affairs, Privilege Communication Nigeria Limited, Abraham Faith Adeyemi, stated this in Kaduna yesterday, during an interaction with journalists, said politics is all about power and authority so that the common man can enjoy the dividends of democracy.
It would be recalled that the Honorable Commissioner, Ministry for Local Government Affairs, Kaduna state, Hon Sadiq Mamman Lagos, received Hon. Salasi, who decamped to the ruling APC alongside other 8 Councilors and his political appointees, including his supporters on the 11th of November, 2023.
Reacting to the development, Faith said the place of power and authority in a democratic setting, can never be over emphasized, noting that aligning with a mainstream political party like the APC will provide greater opportunities and access to resources not only for the chairman but also for the good people of Chikun LGA.
She said, “with Chikun’s sizable population, it is crucial to work closely with Uba Sani, the Governor, to attract and consolidate infrastructural development in the region.
“By joining the APC, Hon Salasi can breathe better and focus on reaching greater heights for his people, particularly in the areas of security, peace, and harmony. This calculated move positions him to have a stronger voice in advocating for the needs and aspirations of his constituents.
“Working closely with Uba Sani, the Governor, will facilitate collaboration and coordination between the local government and the state government, this partnership will ensure that Chikun LGA receives the necessary support and attention for infrastructural development, including roads, schools, healthcare facilities, and other essential amenities.
“Hon. Salasi’s move to the APC, positions him to have a stronger voice in advocating for the needs and aspirations of Chikun LGA. With the support of the party, he can effectively represent the interests of his constituents and work towards addressing their concerns at both the local and state levels. This will ensure that the community’s development priorities are given the attention they deserve, including the area of insecurity.”
