Making the presentation and defending their memo at the North-West public constitution review hearing in Kaduna on Wednesday, SOKAPU President, Hon. Jonathan Asake said, both sides, infamous for incessant inter-ethnic and religious clashes for decades, agreed that, creating new state from the present Kaduna State will go a long way at solving the bloody violence that seemed to defy solution.

Asake said, “The wish of Southern Kaduna is to have a brand new constitution, not an amended one, but in the absence of that, we are here to make our inputs as a people who have suffered suppression and oppression for a long time.
