APC Akida in Kaduna State today being Monday 10th July, 2017 has passed vote of no confidence on The Kaduna State Governor Mallam. Nasir el-Rufai following lack of total absence of leadership tolerance at all levels, lack of consultation with critical stake-holders on matters relating to party members.
Addressing a press conference in Kaduna through its party Chairman, Tom Maitamaki said,’’ The Governor’s policies have put the APC on a cliff running up to 2019, when we have to give our account of stewardship to our people adding, what will be our score card? Destruction of Community peace or mortgaging the future of our Children whose state of education and development is hitting its worst level.
‘’The state is walking into another circle of crises, attack on traditional Institutions who have sustained our sense of community for ages from pre-colonial days. The group however decried the Governor’s assault on the traditional rulers taking together with many of antae-people policies of administration are capable of throwing the state into another round of crises that spiral into unimaginable destruction of community cohesion.
The Chairman added that,’’ Kaduna state should be prepared for the worst is yet to come. Available information beyond the sacking of the 313 district heads and 4,453 villages heads other civil servants including local government staff, Teachers and other professionals have lined up for dismissal.
‘’What this government knows to do best is lies even at the risk of destroying government’s own image. The Governor has so much energy –fighting to destroy his own party that brought him to power, stressing the Governor has no regard for public or responsible opinion and in his pharonic wisdom he does not believe anybody has value,’’ Tom added.
The APC Akida maintained that,’’ the situation we are facing today calls for critical reflection. We believe for the remaining life of this administration, we should address our attention to building the confidence of our Communities, and secure a great future for our children.
‘’We support the court processes in restraining sacking of the traditional rulers which is the civilized approach to resolving these issues.
