NEWSDAILYNIGERIA: The Catholic Bishop of Kafanchan, His Lordship, Julius Kundi, has said the Southern Kaduna people see Sen. Shehu Sani, a Kaduna governorship aspirant on the platform of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) as their friend and brother for speaking against injustice meted on the people of the region.

The clergy stated this when the former Senator paid him a homage at his official resident in Madakiya in Zango Kataf local Government Area of Kaduna State on Friday.

” The Southern Kaduna region you’re visiting and fraternising with are people who value friendship and do not take that from granted, stressing that they reward friendship because they’re proud people and independent.

” A Southern Kaduna Man is a proud man he doesn’t need anybody to survive,  all he wants is to be at peace with everybody,” Kundi said.

According to him, the Southern Kaduna people are looking up to God and individuals who will actually speak for them because they’ve lost their joy, voice, happiness and everything, adding that the only thing that cannot be taking away from them is their faith in God, no matter what happened.

” The people you’re sueing for support are hurt and nobody seems to come out and empathize with them and that has hurt them seriously.

The Bishop while  expressing worry over the incessant killings in the region, lamented that there was anger in the land, noting that the anger has been taken for granted,” he said.

Adding,” I hope you that have new ideas will not take the anger of the people for granted. I am assuring you, whoever that will really help us out of this quagmire we’re ready to go with the person because the Church has always proven to stand to whoever that is just and honorable.
