The 2023 gubernatorial competitor of the Work Party (LP) in Kaduna State, Mr Jonathan Asake, says he isn’t in that frame of mind to leave the possibilities of the People groups Leftist faction, PDP, for the All Moderates Congress, APC, to win in the state.
“My aspiration to be a governor is not a joke,” he asserts, “I am a serious contender for Sir Kashim Ibrahim House and remained highly optimistic to win the election next year.”
When he addressed the political committee panel of the Southern Kaduna Peoples Union (SOKAPU) on Tuesday in Kaduna, he stated that he possesses the necessary skills to rescue the state’s citizens from their current predicament.
The candidate for governor said that he had heard an odd rumor that he only wanted to block the PDP so that the APC could win, but that this is not true.
He inquired, “Why have they not zoned the party’s governorship ticket to the zone since 1999 if the PDP truly believed that the Southern Senatorial zone is theirs?”
He explained that the PDP is spreading false information about his candidacy now that the LP has moved the governor’s office to the southern senatorial district.
Mr. Asake lamented that he was unaffected by the mischief and assured that he was focused on winning and that, with God’s help, he would succeed as Governor of Kaduna State.
