Three main contenders in the Kaduna governorship election, Senator Suleiman Othman Hunkuyi (NNPP), Senator Uba Sani (APC) and Alhaji Isa Ashiru Kudan (PDP), were yesterday grilled by voters on their manifestos for the state if elected in 2023.

The trio were part of a one-day agenda-setting dialogue organised by the Partnership for Issues-Based Campaign in Nigeria (PICaN), supported by Partnership to Engage, Reform and Learn (PERL/FCDO) in collaboration with Legal Awareness for Nigeria Women (LANW).

The three governorship candidates deliberated on their respective blueprints towards developmental commitments in key sectors, comprising security, health, education and agriculture, among others.

Senator Hunkuyi assured workers in the state of better conditions of service if elected, saying, “the sacked workers will be recalled and all their entitlements paid.”

Senator Uba Sani, however, promised to continue with “the good works” of state governor, Malam Nasir El-Rufai, if elected and defended the huge debt profile of the state.

Isa Ashiru, on his part, expressed deep concern over the prevailing poor security in the state, which he said, requires urgent attention.

He assured that he would adopt effective approaches to address insecurity.
