Setup Sovereign Support Funds For Southern Kaduna, SOKAPU Tells Politicians

National Youth Leader, Southern Kaduna People’s Union (SOKAPU) Comrade John Isaac has called on elected representatives from Southern Kaduna to setup a sovereign support fund for internally displaced persons (IDP.
He said that the fund should be setup in a way that every representatives would contributes on monthly basis for the support of affected families, communities and the internally displaced.
Isaac in a statement said the Youth Wing of SOKAPU shall not hesitate to sensitise it’s members across all local government areas of Southern Kaduna on the need to reject any unproductive and self-centred representatives.
He said they are particularly concerned about the growing spade of attacks and killings across villages and communities of Southern Kaduna which had left many dead and scores injured.
Isaac said the most worrisome is the continued silence and inactions of Southern Kaduna elected representatives both at the state and federal level.
“One barely see or hear any Southern Kaduna elected representatives lending their voices in protest at plenaries,” he said.
He added “It thus suffices to say Southern Kaduna elected representatives have abandoned the responsibilities and task of speaking in defence of it’s people to SOKAPU alone.”
He said the politicians are only concerned with the privileges attached to their elective offices, with no form of material assistance to affected families, communities and internally displaced persons
“It is therefore emphatic to remind Southern Kaduna representatives that representation isn’t just about issuing condolence messages and visits to families who lost love ones as a result of their nonchalant attitude towards the safety and well-being of the very people they claim to represents.
“We are therefore charging every elected representatives across Southern Kaduna to live up to the responsibilities of representation which entails standing in defence of the people, promoting the well-being of the people and protecting the overall interest of the people.”
Isaac ended with a quote from Martin Luther King “A time will come when we will not remember the words and actions of our enemies, but the silence of our friends and brothers”
