He said that KAPECOM in collaboration with the sister Ministry, Department, and Agency, (MDAs) in the state has faced head-on the various threats to peaceful Coexistence among the diverse Communities.

“In this pursuit, there were several interventions to resolve the conflicts in parts of Zango Kataf, Kauru, Kaura Jema’a, and Kajuru Local Government Areas”, he explained.

Dr. Momale noted that with the campaigns towards the 2023 elections sets in and the National Population and Housing Census this year, “I appeal to the citizens of Kaduna State to ensure that the processes are free from all forms of intimidation and violent actions”.

While appreciating the support of the Ministry of Internal Security and Home Affairs, Ministry of Human Services and Social Development, Ministry of Sports Development, and the State Emergency Management Agency, among others, KAPECOM in the same breath, acknowledged the technical and financial support of international partners.
