The people of Southern Kaduna have cried out over alleged marginalisation in State and federal appointments.
They appealed that the next ministerial appointment from Kaduna State should be zoned to the area.
Addressing newsmen in Kaduna on Monday, the national coordinator of the movement, Yusuf Kanhu said that over the last eight years, the Southern Kaduna region had experienced severe marginalisation, particularly since the coming into power by the All Progressives Congress (APC).
He explained, “The Southern Kaduna people under the aegis of Southern Kaduna Renewed Hope Movement of Nigeria decry the ongoing marginalisation faced by the southern region within the governance of Kaduna State.”
He observed that under the previous administration of Malam Nasir El-Rufai, a significant disparity emerged in political appointments and campaigns, leading to an imbalanced representation of the region.
The movement opined that the introduction of the Muslim-Muslim ticket further deepened the division, saying that it further relegated the Christians and Muslims of Southern Kaduna to deputy positions or roles of lesser influence.
He called for equitable distribution of appointments to the southern part of the State, urging Governor Uba Sani to ensure fairness for both Christian and Muslim communities in the area.
