President Goodluck Jonathan has said in Kaduna that his administration would revive textile industries in the state, if reelected.
President Jonathan said this yesterday at his re-election campaign.
According to him, the state has already benefited tremendously, in terms of education, transportation and many more from central government, saying the attention would now shift to revamping the textile industries.
"We cannot change people without education. Education is the key. That is why we brought Ahmadu Ali because of his vast knowledge in education. But the greater thing we need to do within the next one year is to revive Kaduna textile industries.
“We understand that it will generate employment opportunities for our people. With power in place now, reviving these companies and ensuring continuity will now be easy. We must do everything to revive it,” he submitted.
In his remark, Senate President, David Mark, who described Kaduna as political melt pot of Northern Nigeria, canvassed the people of the state to vote Jonathan in February poll so he could continue with his transformation agenda which the state was a major beneficiary.
Mark said Kaduna would lead and other states in the north will follow, urging the people not to make mistakes to vote those he dubbed wrong people.
“We must not allow those who will rig to succeed. We must stay and defend our vote. Mr President has the love of the country at heart than any other presidential candidate today. Here is a man who has done a lot for the country. The least you can do is vote for him to continue his transformation agenda,” he added.
Earlier in his welcome address, Governor of Kaduna State, Alhaji Mukhtar Ramalan Yero, commended Mr President for his transformation programmes, confirming that the state has benefited immensely from them.
Yero reiterated the commitment of his people to vote Mr President and his vice, Arch Namadi Sambo and other candidates under the party in the forthcoming elections.

"Kaduna state has been a PDP state since 1999, and it will continue to be PDP state. Kaduna is one of many states that have benefited immensely from your transformation agenda. We also like to thank Mr President for choosing our own brother and father as your running mate.
“We in Kaduna state take away our sentiments and look at issues and resolve to vote for you and other candidates of our great party come February," stressed Yero.
