National Conference: Yero Urges Southern Kaduna People To Focus On Peace …

Gov Ramalan Yero of Kaduna State on Friday urged the Southern Kaduna People’s Union (SOKAPU) to focus its attention on issues that would guarantee peace and security in the country.

Yero gave the urge at a Pre-National Conference Meeting organised by SOKAPU at the Kagoro Community Town Hall, in Kaura Local Government Area of Kaduna State.

The governor was represented at the occasion by his deputy, Mr Nuhu Bagoja.

Yero said that SOKAPU, in its quest to articulate its position, should consult with other sister unions and come out with a harmonised position, in the interest of the state.

“We are all working toward the same objective, that is, the development and progress of our people,’’ he said.

He commended the organisers of the meeting for their foresight, saying it was a noble idea.

The governor expressed optimism that the delegates nominated to the conference would live up to expectation.

Earlier, the President of SOKAPU, Mr Ephraim Goje, expressed concern over the limited slots allotted to the ethnic nationalities in Southern Kaduna.

Goje said the meeting was to equip delegates for quality representation at the conference.

“Consultations with stakeholders and those nominated would continue,’’ he said.

The Chairman of the Organising Committee, Mr Kish Adamu, said issues of concern at the meeting included grazing rights and problems of Nomadic Fulani and Settler-Indigene Crises.

Others, he said, included the creation of Gurara State and land tenure/ ownership, among others. (NAN)
