A coalition of Katsina State students has called on delegates across the major political parties to choose better gubernatorial candidates for the state’s interest.

The students who staged a peaceful rally on Tuesday in Katsina lamented that the state’s residents suffered from economic hardship and insecurity.

“They should have a fear of God and elect the right candidates that would put the people first and also deliver what is expected of them.

“As the 2023 elections are approaching, the parties’ delegates and stakeholders should remember that people are faced with hardship, especially areas with security challenges,” a representative of the students, Aliyu Mamman said.

The students were seen carrying placards with the inscription ‘Katsina State is not for sale’ and started from Continental to the Steel Rolling roundabouts in Katsina.

“We want the delegates to choose leaders that would bring the end of this challenge and bring more developmental projects,” Mr Mamman said.

He said some political parties have demonstrated commitment to choosing credible candidates, urging others to emulate them.
