Group blasts El Rufai for lop-sided appointments

Kaduna State Governor, Malam Nasir El-Rufai may not be as squeaky clean in terms of his decisions after all as a group has accused him of elevating ethnic patronage to an art.

The Non Governmental Organisation organisation under the aegis of the Coalition of Civil Society Organisations (CSOs), from Southern Kaduna, had alleged that appointments by the El-Rufai government are skewed in favour of northern Kaduna.

Spokesman for the group, Mr.James Kantyip, had said: “as Nigerians they (people of Southern Kaduna) are pained that the Governor has treated the southern Kaduna people with unabashed vendetta because most of southern Kaduna did not vote for him and because of our religion and ethnicity.

“Of the 13 commissioners, only four are from southern Kaduna. This is very unfair and a violation of the constitution.”

But El-Rufai in apparent response to the group at the 4th Town Hall meeting held t interactive with the citizens of the state dismissed the allegation, saying there was no iota of truth in their claims.

He said his administration is serving the interests of the diverse people of the state and would carry them along in all appointments, but maintained that some elements who want to reap where they did not sow are jokers.

“You don’t expect me to reject those who voted for me and pick those who worked against me,” he said.

Besides, the governor warned that his administration would deal ruthlessly with individuals or groups who attempt to breach the security of the state.

“No one, no matter how highly placed, who attempts to cause trouble in the state, will face the full weight of the law, he vowed.
