Rev. John Joseph Hayab, the Kaduna State Chairman, Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), has opined that the people of the state need a leader who understands citizens’ pains and will work sincerely to heal their wounds.
Speaking to DAILY POST on Wednesday, the CAN chairman said: “Kaduna people need a leader, not a boss. A humane person who understands their pains and will work sincerely to heal their wounds not anyone who will blame them for crying out because they are in pain.
“Kaduna people need a loving, caring, and empathetic leader. Kaduna people need a leader who will listen, talk to them not command them around like brainless children.”
Rev. Hayab emphasized, “Kaduna people want a leader who will unite them not a person that will create more division and exploit their little differences and misunderstanding for political gains.”
According to him, “Kaduna people will want a leader who will think Kaduna, talk Kaduna, stay in Kaduna, invest in Kaduna people, and build Kaduna people, not a leader who only milks Kaduna to build people who have no interest or stake in Kaduna just to expand his political cloud.
“Kaduna people want leaders who will see everyone in Kaduna as his siblings, father, mother, aunty, uncle, or in general, everyone as his family treating everyone with love and dignity for the overall development of the state.”
He urged people of the state to work as a family irrespective of any differences to elect an honest person saying, “What the citizens of the state are going through has no religion, tribe or section. We are all suffering insecurity where lives of innocent citizens are being killed on a daily basis and properties worth unimaginable magnitude are destroyed leaving people in abject poverty with no one to ameliorate their agony.”
