CEDRA urges El-rufai to expand his understanding of realities in the State


By; Alex Uangbaoje, Kaduna.
‎Centrum Initiative For Development and Fundamental Rights Advocacy (CEDRA)‎ has called on Governor Nasir El-rufai of Kaduna State to expand his understanding of the situation on ground and realities of happening in the state.
‎Chairman Board of Trustees, CEDRA, Dr. John Danfulani‎ said this at a press conference organised to assess one year of the All Progressive Congress (APC) government both in the state and at the Federal level
According to him, “Within one year in office, Governor El-Rufa’i has taken far reaching decisions and made statements like; banning streets hawking and begging, scripting a religious bill, staging a musical jamboree, embarked on school feeding programme, made claim that one LGA in Kaduna State has more gold than South Africa, demolished structures in public schools land, arrested and jailed activists and penman, and told opponents to go climb Kufena Mountain and die.
“‎Most of the programmes are not in touch with the reality on ground. The school feeding programme that billions were sank became a laughing stock. His attempt to build more classrooms for primary schools in the state ended producing more toilets than learning rooms in many schools. His religious censorship bill before the State House of Assembly created more questions than answers. His claims of running a slimmer and effective government is a huge mantra. For a complete one year, there is no single peoples oriented project in Kaduna State.
“His one year reign in Kaduna state was a complete disaster and full of unnecessary controversies. He needs to expand his understanding of the situation on ground and realities of happenings around him. Citizens of Kaduna state must get up and begin to challenge his style of leadership head-on and his know all attitude which is doing more harm than good.
‎“Opposition parties and advocates of good governance and liberty must not lower their guard. PMB and El-rufa’i are leaders not willing to lead by the constitution but by their whims and caprices. Gains of our sixteen years democracy are shrinking. Nigerians and the people of Kaduna state must keep them in check 24/7.”‎
