The All Progressives Congress (APC) Kaduna State under the aegis of ‘APC AKIDA’ has passed a vote of no confidence on Governor Nasir El-Rufai over series of allegations against his administration considered to be anti-people.
This was disclosed at a press conference addressed by chieftains of the party in the state as contained in a statement read by Maitamaki Tom Maiyashi.
Others who were in attendance at the briefing include, Senator ShehuSani, Hon Isah Ashiru, Ambassador Sule Buba, AlhajiTijjani Ramalan, Alhaji Yaro Makama Rigachikwu, Admiral Ibrahim Iko among several other chieftains of the party in the state.
According to the APC chieftains who expressed displeasure with the activities of the governor in the statethe governor has embarked on the “destruction of community peace or mortgaging the future of our children whose state of education and development is hitting its worst level.”
The party chieftains said, “The current sorry state of affairs in the state is characterized by the near total absence of leadership of the party at all levels. The party has been deliberately weakened and virtually rendered ineffective.
“There is complete lack of consultation with critical stakeholders even on matters relating to party members or the community.
“Government’s intolerance of any opinion contrary to the mindset of the governor.
Mercenaries are hired to attack in
dividuals and anybody who dares any opinion meant to add value to public policy.
“The only opinion or input respected is, those of hired consultants specifically recruited from outside the state who do not even understand our environment and lack the commitment to address our developmental priorities.
“These cronies and agents so recruited have virtually rendered the state civil service redundant and inactive. Morale in the civil service today is at its lowest ebb.
“Local government administration has been badly fractured, weakened and literary strangulated. Regrettably the state is walking into another circle of avoidable crises. This time around, it is the ‘attack’ on traditional and community institutions that have sustained our sense of community for ages from pre –colonial days”
. . . Vote Borne Out Of Frustration – el-Rufai
In a swift reaction to the vote of no confidence passed on the g
overnor of Kaduna State, MalamNasir El-Rufai by the Kaduna All Progressive Congress (APC) under the aegis of ‘APC AKIDA’, the governor has described the action as mere demonstration of their frustration and greediness and a deliberate attempt to set the state on fire.
The governor who addressed the press through his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Samuel Aruwan reiterated that “Government cannot be deterred from doing what is important, necessary and consequential for our people. That is a more important goal than the ego and private interests of certain individuals.”
