The Kaduna Democracy Defenders Forum(KDDF) has flayed recent calls for the 2023 governorship position to be zoned to the northern Senatorial District, saying it is pedestrian, myopic and attention-seeking.

Reacting to the calls by a group named Zone One Concerned Stakeholders, the KDDF said the call was as un-informed as the Group is fringe and obscure.

KDDF in a reaction by its Convener, Suleiman Abbah said it is quite unreasonable for any person or group to attempt to deny other sections of the state their legitimate right to seek to be governor of the state, using a divisive method.
“We are compelled to react to the shameful attempt to change the narrative, alter facts, review and rewrite history by wrongly insinuating that the Zone 1 Senatorial District has been shortchanged in the current administration and political structure of the state.

“We find it ridiculous that any Group would venture the careless remarks that the Northern part of the state has been sidelined in terms of state and federal appointments.

“It is important to put the record straight that the Zone 1 has enjoyed almost all the commissioner and cabinet appointments in the state by more than 70 per cent.

“This is in addition to the historical fact that almost all previous governors of the state were from the same Zone One. But most importantly, our position as a group is that both Zones 1, Zone 2 and Zone 3 are a united family and there is no need for this divisive campaign by Zone One Concerned Stakeholders”, Abbah said.
