A lawmaker Suleiman Hunkuyi, on Friday urged Nigerians to shun sentiments by voting for credible leaders that would meet their aspirations in 2019.
Hunkuyi made the call while declaring his intention to run for governorship in Kaduna State on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
He spoke at a town hall meeting in Angwan Wakili, Southern Kaduna.
Hunkuyi said the mandate to elect credible leaders that would deliver the dividends of democracy lay with the people, urging them to take their power seriously.
He said that what gave him the confidence to take up the race was the fact that he would receive the overwhelming support of the people.
The aspirant said that his decision stemmed from the people’s desire to chart a new course for the state.
“My intention to run for governor is because I have the people, and that is what politics is all about.
“It was the power of the people that was harnessed to remove the former government,” he said.
