Sacking Of Workers By El-Rufai Aggravates Insecurity In Kaduna, Says PDP Guber Candidate

Kaduna Gubernatorial Candidate of people’s Democratic Party (PDP) for 2023 general election, Isa Ashiru has attributed rising insecurity in the state to retrenchment of workers by Governor Nasiru El-Rufai.
Ashiru accused the present administration in the state of insensitivity to the plights of people many of whom he noted had been thrown into labour market due to anti-masses policies of the Kaduna Governor. 
He made the remarks at a parley With newsmen at Nigeria Union Of Journalists (NUJ), Kaduna where he fielded questions from reporters on  policy statement and plans for the people of the state if elected their  Governor in 2023.
The governorship hopeful anchored his program for the state around five cardinal areas which included;  security, agriculture, education, health and women and youth empowerment.
He pledged to operate an inclusive government where inputs of citizens would matter in determining allocation and execution of projects.
He decried high level of the state’s indebtedness where he disclosed Kaduna had now become the highest debtor state, overtaking Lagos which he said could internally generate revenue to offset its liabilities.
The former federal legislator promised to review downward tuition fees of state owned institutions of learning so children from poor background could afford tertiary education.
He mentioned in particular what he described as arbitrary hike in tuition fees of Kaduna State University (KASU) and other institutions, saying it’s now beyond the reach of the poor, many of whom he noted had dropped out of school because they could no longer to pay.
” We will subsidize agriculture, education, health and other infrastructure that would positively impact on lives of the masses so they could easily overcome the economic bottlenecks they have been subjected to by the APC administration in the state and federal level.
” We will revive textile industries and make Kaduna the hub of textile production so our teeming number of youth could be absolved in that manufacturing sector.
” We will complete the transmission of 30 megawatts of electricity from Gurara so that industries that have left could come back to the state.
” We will ensure the reintroduction of skill based education so our graduates can be self-employed instead of relying on government and private sectors for employment.
” We will liaise with our creditors to reschedule the debts incurred by this administration to level that won’t be chocking to the next elected government.
” We will explore and exploit available mineral resources in the state and make sure they are tapped and the resources used for the benefit of our people,” he assured.
