Reiterating that the resolve was to give all candidates equal rights, the group noted that they would organize “The Pastors’ Congress” where all the gubernatorial candidates of all the political parties in the state would speak on their manifestoes for the people of Southern Kaduna.

Meanwhile, the group also expressed their joy with Mathew Hassan Kukah, the Bishop of the Catholic Diocese of Sokoto, over the celebration of his 70th birthday and sympathised with the immediate family and congregation of Solid Rock Fellowship International, over the death of its General Overseer, Archbishop Zakka Bonet.
