2023: Insecurity threatening food security in Southern Kaduna
The senatorial candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for Kaduna South, Barr Sunday Marshall Katung, has said the current insecurity in Southern Kaduna is threatening sustainable food production for the region.
He said this recently in Zonkwa, Zangon Kataf local government area while meeting with representatives of the Nigerian Union of Teachers (NUT), National Union of Local Government Employees (NULGE), Presidents of Student Union Governments (SUGs) from tertiary institutions, and several other socio-cultural associations from the eight local governments that make up the Kaduna South senatorial district.
Speaking further, Katung said the wrong choices of electing leaders resulted in the spread of insecurity in the senatorial district, with people resorting to various means to survive.
While saying he would collaborate with relevant stakeholders on tackling the insecurity, he urged people to allow the experiences of the past to guide them in electing the right leaders in the coming general elections.
Katung added that, as a way of fully understanding the problems of the senatorial district, a needs assessment study was done which the candidates of the Peoples Democratic Party would work on when elected into office.
Some of the invited stakeholders listed insecurity, lack of inclusiveness, unemployment, lack of mentorship, and federal presence as some of the problems they requested the senatorial candidate to tackle when he gets elected into the National Assembly.
