The only thing that we may be called upon to contribute our quota are those aspects of politics of buying votes, trying to use force where there shouldn’t be. That is where certain leadership need to say no to this kind of politics. But by and large, it’s the question of vote that the people of Kaduna state are desirous of changing the leadership.
