The Senatorial Candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for Kaduna South Senatorial District, Barr. Sunday Marshall Katung, has identified insecurity in Southern Kaduna as the major factor threatening sustainable food production in the area.


Katung stated this while speaking in Zonkwa, headquarters of Zango Kataf Local Government Area of Kaduna State, during a meeting with Union representatives and several other socio-cultural associations from the eight local governments that make up the Kaduna South Senatorial District. s


The Kaduna South PDP Senatorial Candidate explained that the wrong choice of electing leaders led to 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.


Barr. Katung who is a former lawmaker at the lower chambers of the National Assembly pointed out that he has the experience to make laws and lobby for projects that  will transform the living standard of the ordinary Southern Kaduna citizen.


He used the occasion to challenge the electorate who are yet to collect their permanent voters card to do so, so as to actively participate in chosing good leaders that will move the country and her people to greater heights.


Katung maintained 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 stakeholder’s 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.
