The Kaduna State governorship candidate of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), Mohammed Isah Ashiru has promised to partner with Journalists if elected governor in the forthcoming 2023 election.
Ashiru said partnering with journalists who he repeatedly described as the fourth estate of the realms, has become imperative because they contribute to the development of the state and nation in general.
The governorship hopeful spoke yesterday, during an interactive session with newsmen at the secretariat of Nigerian Union of Journalists (NUJ), Kaduna State council.
He also spoke on policies and infrastructures he would put in place if elected, even as he unveiled a 5-point agenda on his electioneering campaign.
He said his 5-point agenda included security, agriculture, education (science and technology), health, youth and women empowerment.
Speaking on health, women and youth empowerment, Ashiru said, “When you go to hospitals you shed tears because the necessary equipments are not there. Patients cannot afford to pay bills, not to talk of our mothers who have breast cancer.
