“I intend to sponsor 52 university graduates four from each of the 13 wards of my constituency at the end of my four year tenure. We intend to create skill acquisition institutions across the 66 constituencies in the state,l. We intend to engage youth and women, we would train and empower them. We are going to be committed to our oversight functions and to dedicate ourselves to achieving the best. We want to encourage education in our constituency,” he said.

For Labour Party senatorial candidate for Kaduna North, Malam Ibrahim Sidi Bamalli, addressing insecurity through job creation is key. 

“We would tackle security through employment using agriculture. Lots of youth and women would be engaged actively through entrepreneurship and skill acquisition to lift them out of poverty. We would ensure implementation of anti-corruption laws to address other challenges in the state,” he said.

The Labour Party senatorial candidate for Kaduna South, Engr. Michael Auta, planned to seek abolition of the law which puts first class chiefs under local government chairmen to uplift them and enable them take their rightful position in the society.
