The governorship candidate of the New Nigeria Peoples Party in Kaduna State, Senator Suleiman Hunkuyi, has warned residents to be wary of candidates deploying religion or tribal sentiments ahead of the March 18, 2023 governorship election in the state.
Hunkuyi also faulted the endorsement of candidates by religious bodies and queried the rationale behind some governorship candidates jostling for clerics to endorse them for the forthcoming poll.
He added that using religion or tribal antics in a complex state such as Kaduna for electioneering was dangerous to democracy.
Speaking to newsmen in Kaduna on Saturday, Hunkuyi said eligible voters must shun divisive politics and vote for a credible candidate that will move the state forward in terms of development.
The governorship hopeful noted that he stood for an inclusive government that would carry everybody along irrespective of age, religion and tribe when elected as governor.
He noted that claims and counterclaims by both the All Progressives Congress and the Peoples Democratic Party in the state that their candidates were endorsed by some clerics were just to deceive the electorate.
