Governor Nasir El-Rufai
The governor of Kaduna State, Nasir El-Rufai on Friday said that the State House of Assembly was right over the rejection of one of the Commissioner-nominees.
The Speaker of the House, Aminu Shagali had on Thursday rejected Aliyu Jaafar, nominated by el-Rufai as the Commissioner for Agriculture over his consistent criticism of El-Rufai’s administration from 2017.
Speaking during the swearing-in the rest of the nominees confirmed by the Assembly, el- Rufai said: “We thank the Kaduna State House of Assembly for prompt confirmation and scrutinisation of our Commissioners. We note that the House was unable to confirm one of our nominees and we will shortly be proposing a replacement.
“I think they did the right thing, because it is their job to check whatever we are doing. No one is perfect, we can never always get it right. That is why our partnership with the state house of assembly is a healthy one. And we support every decision they take,” El-Rufai said.
