Kaduna 2023: Asake emerges Labour Party Guber candidate

The Labour Party ( LP) in Kaduna State has conducted a substitution primary and elected the immediate past National President of the Southern Kaduna Peoples Union ( SOKAPU), Hon. Jonathan Asake, as its governorship candidate in the 2023 gubernatorial election in the state.

A former Majority Leader in the Kaduna State House Assembly who was also a Commissioner of Works in the state, Alhaji Bashir Idris Aliyu Zangon Aya, was picked as the running mate of the LP candidate.

Asake, a former House of Representatives member,  said that he was joining the governorship race to Sir Kashim Ibrahim  House, come 2023 to answer the clarion call of the people.

While thanking the LP delegates who came from the 23 Local Government areas of the state for the substitution primaries, Asake said “what you’ve been hearing is now confirmed that I have answered a clarion call by people and by the larger people of Kaduna State that I should contest for the Gubernatorial election come 2023.”

According to Asake, “the LP’s determined to wrestle power from the All Progressives Congress( APC) in the state and bring it back its golden days .

“I appreciate  the delegates and party leaders, I promised to be governor to everybody irrespective of where you come from or your religion if elected the next governor of the state, come 2023.”

Asake said: “I feel excited but I also see the stepping down of  my co-contestant as a sign of the kind of government we are going to form; a  government of unity; a government of stepping down our individual and  personal interest for the interest of the general public.”

“When we come, we will ensure inclusiveness in government,  justice, fairness for everybody. When a leader does this, there will be less rancour. There will be peace, progress and development.  That is the kind of leadership that the Labour Party is throwing up for Nigeria. That is the option that we are coming up with.”
