The President of Southern Kaduna Peoples Union (SOKAPU) Hon. Jonathan Asake, has called on all indigenes and residents of Kaduna state to join hands and seek for a solution to the violence in the state.
He made the assertion while receiving the former Senator representing kaduna Central in the upper Chamber Shehu Sani at the Union Headquarters in kaduna yesterday.
Hon. Jonathan Asake, expressed his pleasure with the visit of the former Senator, said
Sen. Sani’s voice before he went into the Senate, while in the red chamber and now out of it, had been consistent on speaking for the suppressed and for justice and fairness
“You are one of the few voices that have refused to betray the course of Justice even when you ascended into governance,” he said.
Hon. Asake lamented that Kaduna state had never been so divided at any time like under the present government Governor Nasir el-Rufai, accusing him of using the religious and ethnic fault lines for political gains.
Speaking earlier Sen. Shehu Sani,affirmed his support for SOKAPU against the killings in Southern Kaduna.
According to him whenever people face cruelty, genocide, massacre and all kinds of atrocities it is the moral duty of every man of conscience to lend his voice.
“I have spoken for the people of Zamfara very elaborately. I did so for Sokoto, Katsina, Niger , Taraba State and for Birnin Gwari in Kaduna and Borno, Benue states and host of others who are facing similar evils.
