Kaduna State Governor, Malam Nasir El-Rufai has boasted of retiring the immediate past senator representing Kaduna Central Senatorial District, Shehu Sani, whom he said, has been reduced to a blogger.
The governor, who made the remarks when the Kpop Ham, Malam Danladi Gyet Maude, paid him a courtesy visit at the Government House Kaduna, also claimed to have retired another former senator, Uthman Hunkuyi, whom he revealed had relocated out of the country.
Governor El-Rufai was quoted as saying: “We have kicked out Shehu Sani, who has now become a blogger and Uthman Hunkuyi who has now relocated to China with his family for not giving the people of Kaduna State the opportunity of getting the loan that will help in improving the lots of Kaduna people.”
The governor noted that his recent appointments were based on merit and devoid of political sentiments.
“We care about capacity, competence and commitment to service. All the people appointed by us are strictly and basically on merit.
“If we used politics, no one from Jaba local government will be appointed by our administration because of the poor elections results”, he stated.
Malam Danladi Gyet Maude, expressed gratitude to the governor for selecting a great number of his appointees from Ham, while appealing to the state government to complete ongoing projects in the community.
“The people of Ham are not thinking of political party as those with me here are from different political parties but we are here to show our gratitude”, the Kpop Ham said.
