2023: Review your manifestos, campaign strategies to suit our needs – Citizens tell political parties


Jigawa State citizens have called on political parties and candidates to review their manifestoes and campaign strategies to suit the demand of the people of the state.

This was contained in a ”Next Jigawa guiding document” on the citizens’ inputs for the development of the state

“Next Jigawa” is comprised of academicians, civil servants, professionals, businessmen, religious scholars, civil society activists and other nonpartisan people who have a passion for the development of the state.

Professor Haruna Ibrahim, Chairman of the group said the documents were produced to influence the political parties and their candidates to understand the citizens’ needs and work based on their demands.

He said, ” We have conducted a survey and also gathered citizens’ inputs from all the communities across the 27 local government areas of the state and we finally came up with this document which we hope will be adopted as a guide by political parties and their candidates”

“The document contains areas that need quick and urgent response such as education, health, civil service, commerce, environment and other areas”

He noted that if the inputs are considered, they would help in the development of the state.
