Immediate past Director General, Media and Publicity to former Governor Mukhtar Ramalan Yero, Alhaji Ahmed Maiyaki has posited that Kaduna State requires political emergency response to take her out of its present quagmire.
According to him, the state is bedeviled with lots of insecurity ranging from kidnapping, cattle rustling, unwarranted killings, coupled with abject poverty and sufferings among several other negativities.
Maiyaki who has now pitched his tent with the immediate past National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) director general, Alhaji Mohammed Sani Sidi who is also seeking to govern the state on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) said, all hands must be on deck in unity to change the present government under the leadership of Governor Nasir el-Rufai of the All Progressive Congress (APC).
He reiterated while interrecting with Kaduna journalists who paid him sallah homage at his residence, ” like I have always said before now, the present governor does not know Kaduna state and being an elitist person, he has lost touch with reality particularly at the grass roots.
” Kaduna as at today is among the most insecured state in the country, insecurity everywhere, am aware that flights to Kaduna state have severally been cancelled for fear of insecurity such as kidnapping which has become rampant in the state.
“The present leadership in the state has brought so much fear to the people, people now wake up without knowing what will happen to them next, either they get unwarrantedly sacked, retired compulsorily or their houses unjustly demolished.
” So the good people of Kaduna must join hands together to change this government and replace her with someone who has the feelings of the people at heart.
” As a close associate of one of the governorship aspirants, Honourable Sani-Sidi, I think he is one aspirant that has what it takes to provide the right leadership for the good people of Kaduna State.
” Am aware there are lots of campaigns to malign his person, but I want to let you know that no amount of political blackmail will deter him should he emerge the flag bearer of the PDP and governor of the state in providing the right leadership.
