The People Democratic Party, PDP, Kaduna State Chairman, Hon. Felix Hassan Hyat and the State Working Committee have approved the appointment of Edward John Auta, as the Special Adviser on Media and Public Affairs to the State Chairman.
Until his appointment, Auta was the Administration and Human Resource Manager of Invicta FM 98.9 Kaduna. In addition, Auta is a Historian and Public Affairs Analyst with reasonable experience in broadcasting.
He is also a committed member of the People’s Democratic Party whose contributions to the growth of the party over the years have been very conspicuous and invaluable.
He was a member of the Directorate of Media and Publicity of the party’s 2019 Gubernatorial Election Campaign Council, member Committee for the repositioning of the party in Kaduna State in 2021, and also played critical roles in the victory of PDP in the last Local Government Council Elections in Zangon Kataf LGA and the State at large, among others. His social media influence is undisputed. He hails from Zonkwa Ward in Zangon Kataf LGA, and is also married with a child.
Edward is expected to bring his creativity and wealth of experience to bear in this new role as well as the party’s drive to reclaim the state from the retrogressive forces that have thrown the people into unprecedented hardship and widespread insecurity since it came to power in 2015.
