2023: Stakeholders Drum Support For Danjuma Laah’s Re-election Bid

Chieftains of the Opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Kaduna South Senatorial District and other stakeholders in the area have thrown their weight behind the aspiration of the incumbent Senator representing the District at the National Assembly, Senator Danjuma Laah.

Former member of the House of Representatives who represented Kachia/Kagarko, Federal Constituency of Kaduna State, at the Green chamber of the 6th Assembly, Hon. Adams Jagaba Adams has also indicated interest to slug it out with the incumbent Senator at the PDP Senatorial primary billed for February 2022.

While expressing his support for Senator Danjuma Laah’s aspiration to seek re-election, a three-term member of Kaduna State House of Assembly Honourable Labari Tella said that the incumbent Senator is a formidable aspirant with a vision for his people.

He added that Sen. Laah is not only a political heavyweight in the entire Southern Kaduna but also a well-known politician and a businessman from Kaura LGA of Kaduna state.

Hon. Douglas Habu who served as special adviser to three different governors in the state said that senator Laah is a result-oriented politician with value and repute.

The Senator, he said, “isn’t contesting for the Senatorial slot in search of names, or is he hungry for power or position. For the very first term Laah broke the Political jinx in Southern Kaduna, which is notable for one term and returned twice given his hard work and legislative prowess”.

Comrade Victor Bobai Mathew, convener of SDL 100% Support Group said exactly what the PDP needs is a fearless leader and a good team player whose major interest is all about his people.

 “This is a very serious challenge for Southern Kaduna. We cannot compromise our political leadership for those players that want names and fame,” he told newsmen.

“As of now the change in returning senator Laah is on the open primary election for the PDP to ensure that only card carriers of PDP would be allowed to select their candidate. This is because the party needs to democratize all its electoral activities this time.

Senator Laah’s leadership style has united his supporters, as he has continued to support the fight against banditry and insurgents”, he said.

Another former member of the Senate, Senator Zego Aziz, a veteran politician, and founding member of the PDP in Kaduna and Nigeria, said  that the campaign for 2023 will be more about issues and not about how many times one is contesting.

A former Member State House of Assembly in Kaduna from Zonkwa constituency Hon Jeremiah Kantiok acknowledged how much it will mean for Southern Kaduna to have Senator Laah returned.

 “Laah has beautiful projects ahead of him to accomplish like establishment of the Federal University of Technology Manchoch, State creation, Local Government Autonomy and establishment of security network to reduce insurgency and kidnapping in Southern Kaduna,” he said.
