DAMATURU – Alhaji Musa Duchi, one of the 2019 governorship aspirants on the All Progressives Congress (APC) platform in Yobe State have alleged discrimination and marginalisation of Yobe North Senatorial District in government appointments.

Duchi said the people of the district were not happy over the manner the 2019 APC aspirants were anointed by the incumbent government and the political leaders in the state, saying that his people had been neglected.

The call came few days after Governor Ibrahim Gaidam announced that the government and Yobe APC leaders had an anointed governorship candidate.

He alleged that Yobe zone ‘C’ area, made up of Bade, Nguru,  Karasuwa, Jakusko, Machina and Yusufari Local Government Areas, had been marginalised, even as he stressed that the zone had contributed immensely in the educational, social and economic development of the state.

Duch, who spoke to DAILY INDEPENDENT on preparations of the forth-coming primary election in the state, said: “Since the return of democracy in 1999, our senatorial zone has never been considered for either governorship or deputy governorship positions.

“That is why I am aspiring to be the governor of Yobe State.  I want to contribute my quota in the development of the state.”

According to him, Yobe North Senatorial Zone, had been  used as voting machines by the politicians since 1999, adding, “then, we have remained loyal and obedient to the ruling party in the state.

“We have never sabotaged any government effort, nor engaged in any form of anti-party activities during elections. Yet, when the national cake is being shared, Zone ‘C’ is ignored.”

He urged the state government to consult the community before selecting leaders.
