Benefits of Violence-Free Elections in Kaduna State

Town Hall Meeting for Security Agencies and Citizens

Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung in collaboration with Nigeria Security and Civil Defense Corps (NSCDC) is organizing another town hall meeting for security agencies and stakeholders to deliberate on possibilities and benefits of having violence-free elections on Kaduna State in the coming 2019 elections.

Details

Kaduna like Plateau State is located in the Middle Belt, and the state capital Kaduna is also divided along religious lines. Kaduna North is predominantly Muslim, while Kaduna South is mostly Christian and having a lot of “settlers” from the southern part of the country. The recent eruption of violence in Kaduna State is in particular worrisome. The 2011 general elections witnessed already brutal and deadly clashes between the youths and security agencies especially in the Northern part of Kaduna, and against the backdrop of the recent escalations KAS and NSCDC wish to prevent a reoccurrence of violence by sensitizing the stakeholders and security agencies on their duties towards guaranteeing violence-free elections in this town hall meeting.
