A coalition of youth groups across the Daura Zone in Katsina State, has called on the people of the area to vote for Dr. Rabiu Kwankwaso as President during the 2023 elections.
The youth who made the call during a meeting on Sunday in Daura, also solicited for support to Nura Khalil as the Katsina State governor under the New Nigeria People’s Party, NNPP.
During the meeting, one of the NNPP stakeholders, Muttaqa Rabe, said the meeting was to inform the people of the area about the intention of the two candidates.
According to him, looking at the current situations in the country, if elected president, Kwankwaso would continue to focus more on the development of youths.
“If you could remember, when he was the governor of Kano State, he empowered a lot of youths and sponsored many of them to study different courses in Nigeria and abroad.
“Not only when he was the governor, even after his tenure, he has sponsored many indigenes of the state to further their education.
“Some of them are now working, while some are enjoying the skills they acquired due to his intervention.
“He provided skills acquisition centres across the 44 Local Government Areas (LGAs) in Kano State for people who are only interested in skills acquisition.
“Therefore, I want to assure you that if he becomes the President, he’s going to continue towards that direction and other developmental programmes in Nigeria.” Dr. Rabe said.
Earlier, the youth’s coordinator, Bashir Bala said that Mr Khalil also had the same interest for the development of youths just like Kwankwaso.
According to him, some of the roads constructed through the Petroleum Trust Fund, PTF, which are still in good shape, were supervised by Khalil among other projects.
He, therefore, called on the people of the zone and the state in general to ensure that their votes were for Mr Khalil as governor and Mr Kwankwaso as President.
