Ahead of the 2023 general elections, northern groups in Zaria have vowed to vote out old politicians in Kaduna State.

Ahead of the 2023 general elections, northern groups in Zaria have vowed to vote out old politicians in Kaduna State.

They said the state has been witnessing agitations for power shift that allows for a fresh set of young leaders.

The women, in a statement yesterday in Abuja, by their convener, Hajiya Saadatu Salihu, said: “It has gone far into the search for replacement to the current set of leaders they elected, who abscond after every electoral victory and only resurface during another election.”

She pointed out that in the contemporary political history of Zaria, and perhaps Kaduna generally, most power seekers are adept at identifying and seizing issues that work for their own or party’s benefit.
