A frontline governorship aspirant, Mohammed Sani-Dattijo, has launched a six-point blueprint agenda on how he will build a smart city in Kaduna State in the forthcoming 2023 elections.
Dattijo, who is currently the Kaduna State Commissioner for Budget and Planning, inaugurated the agenda on Tuesday, at the APC Secretariat along Ali Akilu Road, in the state capital.
While speaking during the launching, Dattijo acknowledged his mentor, Nasir el-Rufa’i, who he said has recorded remarkable achievements and raised the bar in terms of providing infrastructural development and good governance, noting that it is important to sustain the trend.
The former Chief of Staff to Governor El-Rufa’i disclosed that serving in the State Executive Council since 2015 provided him the opportunity to understudy and understand how governance works.
He cautioned the party against making a wrong choice, saying “we need to be careful in choosing whoever becomes the next governor, by making sure that it is someone who is well-experienced and grounded educationally”.
In his remarks, the Chairman “Dattijo Support Group”, MS Ustaz, described Sani Dattijo as the best candidate among the other contestants vying for the gubernatorial position in the State.
He added that the people of Kaduna state will see the actual demonstration of positive change when they elect Sani Dattijo as governor of the State.
According to the gubernatorial aspirant, governance is continuity, and therefore, he would continue with what is already on the ground and improve on it. He also added that he would also empower the youth, through the creation of jobs.
Dattijo promised to improve upon the present achievements in the State and challenged the youth not to be relaxed about this, adding that it is because of complacency that is the reason why they are being trampled upon.
He emphasised that it is time for them to take their destinies into their own hands.
The Chairman, “Dattijo Support Group”, MS Ustaz, added that people of Kaduna State will see the positive change when they elect Sani Dattijo as governor of the State.
