“Aside insecurity, our zone is also suffering from infrastructural decay, owing to government’s negligence. We are suffering from lack of roads, lack of electricity, lack of healthcare system and industries.”

“Our zone has been disadvantaged for a long time, hence our resolve to support the Senatorial candidature of Hon. Barr. Sunday Marshall Katung.

“We need someone who the whole Kaduna South Senatorial District and Southern Kaduna can believe in, someone who has the will and the courage to see justice prevail and ensure fairness to the citizens.

“We need someone with capacity to influence and attract development to the zone and we are in dare need of someone that can unite the people,” he said.
