    University when ? Why now ? Cheap campaign strategy ! What southern kaduna people want is permanent peace.


    The Kaduna Gubernatorial election in 2015 is a battle for the titans. It will first and foremost serve as a litmus test for the electoral value and popularity of Governor Yero as against a political warhorse of APC who is a smooth talker and a trailblazer.

    When I read the acceptance speech of El Rufia and his plans for New Kaduna I need no soothsayer to tell me that the soul for Kaduna State will be keenly contested. Governor Yero should better use the political space of his late predecessor and the presence of Vice President Sambo as the indigene of the state to curry political popularity and thereby assuaging the minds of the die hard followers of his late predecessor Patrick Yakowa, which he displaced.

    Politics is about networking. No politician should throw the baby away with the bath water. Recently, Governor Yero has been accused of negligence by Southern Kaduna where women and girls came out half naked as a way to protect their grievances. Good-luck Yero!

    What the people need now is peace not University. Since Yero could not provide the needed security, El-Rufai should be voted into power and let’s see if things will change. We are tired of empty promises.
