Hon. Iliya Anthony Timbuark has expressed interest to aspire for the position of member, representing Zonkwa Constituency in the Kaduna State House of Assembly on the platform of the All Progressive Congress, APC.
In a letter he wrote to party faithful in Zonkwa, it reads:
As I previously stated, I’d like to begin by thanking you for the trust you placed in me in 2019 to fly our party ticket. As you are all aware, we all gave it our all, but the majority of constituents had other ideas. In good faith, we accepted their decision.
As a student who is always eager to learn and improve, I have noted the areas where we excelled and those where our fallible nature took over. I’ve worked on the majority of them to strengthen us in both our areas of strength and weakness.
Most cherished leaders of our party and various interest groups and communities, I’m glad to inform you that, after due consultation with family, friends, political associates, constituents, and stakeholders, I’d like to officially inform you of my intention to run for the position of Member, Kaduna State House of Assembly, representing the good people of Zonkwa Constituency on the platform of our great party, the All Progressives Congress (APC).
We campaigned with the slogan “NEW DEAL,” as we did in the previous election. We are more determined than ever to strike a new deal with the good and enlightened people of the Zonkwa Constituency. Ordinarily, I would have avoided this race, but I believe that with your help, we can fill the void left by vacuous representative leadership and get the best for our people.
Our people’s experiences over the last three years have demonstrated that party platforms do not deliver the dividends of democracy; altruistic leaders who allow “self to die” so that they can live for the good of others, regardless of race or creed, do. As a result, I’d like to ask for your help in securing your beloved party’s ticket and then running in the general election if given the chance.
I’ve since urged my campaign team to conduct themselves with the utmost decency, as the primary election is a contest between brothers and sisters. After the primaries, all hands must be on deck to ensure our party’s total victory.
