Governor Malam Nasir el-Rufai of Kaduna State said that former Senators Shehu Sani is now a blogger and Uthman Hunkuyi has relocated to China as he has retired them from politics. He made the statement while responding to the Kpop Ham Malam Danladi Gyet Maude, who paid him a courtesy visit at the Sir Kashim Ibrahim House in Kaduna. Governor El-Rufai said, “We have kicked out Shehu Sani, who has now become a blogger and Uthman Hunkuyi who has now relocated to China with his family for not giving the people of Kaduna State the opportunity of getting the loan that will help in improving the lots of Kaduna people.” El-Rufai, who told the Kpop Ham that his appointments into sensitive positions was based not just on merit but on their competence lamented that people always misunderstood him when he gave sensitive appointments to non indigenes. “We care about capacity, competence and commitment to service. All the people appointed by us are strictly and basically on merit,” he emphasized. Governor El-Rufai explained, “If we used politics, no one from Jaba local government will be appointed by our administration because of the poor elections results.” While thanking the Kpop Ham for giving Kaduna state quality individuals for appointments, el-Rufai said that only Zaria and Jaba local governments have the highest number of people appointed to sensitive offices in the state. He promised to see to the request of the Ham people In order to enhance their well-being and improve the lot of the people of Kaduna state especially those in the rural areas. Speaking earlier, the Kpop Ham Malam Danladi Gyet Maude, expressed his pleasure to the governor for appointing many Ham sons and daughters into various positions of authority in the state. He called on the governor to as a matter of priority help in completing various projects in Ham kingdom which had been left uncompleted. He said, “The people of Ham are not thinking of political party as those with me here are from different political parties but we are here to show our gratitude.”

The lawmaker, who represented Kaduna Central Senatorial District in the eight National Assembly, Senator Shehu Sani, has reacted to the action of Governor Nasir El-Rufai, who on Monday enrolled six-year-old son, Abubakar, in a public school.

Sani said the governor’s intention was to deceive people outside the locality, who might not know the level of decay in public schools in the state.

He said it was designed to score points ahead of 2023 political dispensation.

Sani described the action as a badly written Kennywood or Nollywood script, designed for the media, preparatory to 2023.

Addressing reporters yesterday in Kaduna, he said the governor’s action “was simply a 2023 political stunt set up for the media and people who live outside Kaduna because those who reside here know what public primary schools look like.”

Sani said: “It is not because I have political difference with him, no. But whoever lives in Kaduna State knew that what the governor did with his son by enrolling him in a public school was just a comedy.
“Although, it was a badly written Kennywood or Nolywood script, as far as I am concerned that was a bad and poorly written script for the media preparatory to 2023 and nothing else.

“He would have done better by upgrading schools in Kaduna. You cannot spend N195million in a particular school and then take your son and the media to that school and think you have done anything different.
“Let me tell you, we had a governor in this state, Balarabe Musa, who never lived in the Government House when he was in power. He lived in his private house. I know that the children of former Governor Ahmed Makarfi attended this same Capital School.

“I also know that other public officials’ children go to that school too. So if you are not being cunning, deceptive and comical, you would have allowed all your children to enrol in public schools. Public school doesn’t mean primary schools alone, there are public secondary schools and public universities.

“He is not new in this kind of drama. It was the same person who was moving around Kaduna-Abuja road with cameras, saying he was chasing kidnappers. So, this is a new script, but as far as I am concerned, that is comedy since we are in an era in this state of using public utilities, public hospitals and now public schools.

“So it is also in order that public officials, both elected and appointed, should patronise public toilets in Kaduna. That is the highest form of patriotism and selfless service. You should use what the masses are using, which is public toilets.”
