El-Rufai Blasts Critics, Denies Nominating Sister For Ministerial Position

imageKaduna State governor, Nasir El-Rufai has taken a swipe at his critics for accusing him of running a vendetta government, saying such people should not expect appointments from his administration.

The governor also refuted claims that he nominated his foster sister, Zainab Ahmed as the ministerial nominee representing Kaduna state.

He dismissed the allegation as a figment of the imagination of some elements who are not pleased with the drastic changes going on in the state.

Zainab Ahmed was until her nomination the Executive Secretary of Nigeria Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative (NEITI).

Governor El-Rufai who spoke on a wide range of issues at the 4th Town Hall Meeting to interface with the people of the state on Saturday, said he has discovered that some elements are carrying the face of the All Progressive Congress Party, APC, but deep in their hearts, they represent the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.

He insisted at the meeting which took place at the Kaduna International Trade Fair Complex, Rigachikun, Kaduna, that he neither submitted anybody’s name as ministerial nominee nor that of his sister.

President Muhammadu Buhari acted on his own wisdom by nominating the Executive Secretary of NIETI as minister, El- Rurai stated.
