Although political campaigning hasn’t begun in full until after the political parties’ primary elections, the DG however noted that he has not ruled out the possibility of heeding the clarion call of his people if they deem him fit.

While fielding questions from newsmen in Zaria, Dr. Jamoh said even if he is convinced to contest for the seat ‘it will not be a do-or-die affair’.

The DG said, “I will not insist that I must be the governor by hook or by crook. But I will like to serve my people and deliver to their maximum expectations”.

Dr. Jamoh added that many individuals and groups from the 23 local councils in the State are still consulting with him so that he can contest, adding that his stance will be made known very soon when he has finished with his consultations.

The DG NIMASA further said what his Foundation is doing is separate from any political ambition, as it has been in existence in the last two years.

“Jamoh Foundation is aimed at improving the social condition of people, especially the downtrodden, as part of my little way of giving back to the people what they gave to me. It provides educational succour to the youth, conducts medical outreach, and provides agricultural support to the citizens”, he stated.

Meanwhile, the Jamoh Campaign Council for the Kaduna 2023 Governorship Election, (DBJ2023) has announced, in Kaduna, a 25-member Media Team, with Hon. Sa’idu Adamu as its Director, Media, and Publicity as the Head.

Others include Alh. Aliyu Suleiman Tanimu, alias Silver, as the Director-General; Hon Bege Katuka – Deputy Director-General, Prof. Yusuf Dankofa – Director Legal Service; Arch. Ahmed Yariman Buhari – Director of Organisation and Hon. Manasseh Istifanus as Director, Research and Planning.

The Media Consultant of the Campaign Council Media Team, Rabiu Ibrahim, made a Powerpoint presentation mapping out the Strategic Communication Outlook to the DBJ2023 Steering Committee, and the Campaign Team to take.

According to Ibrahim, the Stakeholder Mapping identified three layers of stakeholders desiring different but complementary approaches to strategic communication outreach.

He added that the main target of the mapping is, amongst others, to proceed to advance the appropriate communication tools and media channels that will positively penetrate members of all identified strata towards the acceptance and endorsement of DBJ at the upcoming Party Primaries.
