OPINION: Why The People Of Southern Kaduna Needs To Vote Honourable Jagaba Come 2023, By Daniel Katung

In a crucial time like this, the people of southern kaduna needs a brave leader that will not only speak for the region, but will act on its behalf. 
The people of southern kaduna needs more than a Senator, they need an active leader that'll serve as the voice of the voiceless. 
Since the serving elected Southern kaduna leaders chose to be silent on issues that they are supposed to raise alarm, then the best option is to replace them with leaders who are fearless, leaders that'll serve their people, speak for their people without minding the consequences of their actions. 

After diagnosing all the southern Kaduna senatorial aspirants, i can boldly say that the man that fits the job is honourable Jagaba Adams Jagaba. 
Those who knows him can attest to the fact that he is brave and fearless. Those who knows him can attest to the fact that he is someone who stands for Equity and Justice. That's the man we need at this point in time, where our people have been reduced to IDPs in their own land.

The love and support for Rt. Hon. Jagaba Adams Jagaba to take over the affairs of southern kaduna in the senate by the people of southern kaduna is spreading like a pandemic. His followers are growing every seconds of the day.  His name is known in every southern kaduna community due to his good deeds, love for his people and God fearing nature which distinguish him from other politicians. 

He is the man we can confidently send to the senate and go to sleep with our eyes closed, knowing he is equal to the task. Over the years, Rt. Hon. Jagaba has proved beyond reasonable doubt, his love for the people of southern kaduna, by empowering hundreds of youths and women across the eighth local government of southern kaduna with sources of livelihoods, scholarships, infrastructures amongst others. 
Apart from numerous bills he moved at the floor of the house which was his primary responsibility, God used him in numerous ways to serve humanity. 

He started as a trained teacher, former member of the fourth estate of the realm, and a practicing farmer. He was elected to represent his people at the National Assembly thrice, where he served the good people of Kachia/Kagarko Federal Constituency at the Green Chamber (House of Representatives). In all of these years, he was saddled with one responsibility or the other, some of which are:
Chairman, House Committee on Anti - Corruption, National Ethics and Values (1999-2003);
Chairman, House Committee on Drugs, Narcotics and Financial Crimes (2011-2015);
Chairman, House Committee on Interior (2015 ). Aside these Standing Committees of the House, he also chaired some critical ad hoc committees such as:
Anti - Corruption  Act Legislation, NASS(1999-2001), and
Joint Committee on Central Bank Probe (2002-2003).
In 2003, he founded the the Forum of Former National Legislators and became its Chairman from 2004-2008. He was elected Chairman, Northern Legislators Forum for four years (2011-2015). 
At the expiration of his tenure in 2015, he was re - elected for another four years to expire in 2019.

Aware that one of the key functions of a Legislator is the enacting of laws that would enhance good governance, he sponsored twelve Bills, moved over twenty Motions and presented numerous Petitions on behalf of his Constituents. One of his motions sought for the conversion or upgrading of General Hospital Kafanchan to a Federal Medical Center. His wealth of experience is not limited to legislation, as he was once in the Executive arm of Government, having been elected Vice - Chairman of Kagarko Local Government Area from 1997-1998, before being appointed the Chairman, Interim Management Committee of the same Local Government in 2008. As a seasoned Administrator, he served as the Secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party(PDP) Kaduna State Chapter from 2008-2011.

Though legislative rituals such as lobbying, oversights, filibusters and the feedback culture between the Legislator and his Constituents are cumbersome and tasking, he did it with immense joy.
His experience at performing these arduous tasks is evident at his being able to influence the employment of about two hundred youths across Southern kaduna in the Federal Civil Service.

Having traversed both the Legislative and Executive arms of government as well as being adept in party administration, I make bold to say that Honourable Jagaba Adams Jagaba posses the requisite credentials to represent Southern Kaduna Senatorial Zone at the Senate of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, come 2023.
Let's all join hands and allow God to use him again in 2023, for we need Jagaba now more than ever.
