Nasiru El-Rufai Set To Go, By Ibrahim Biu

Kaduna State Governor-elect, Mall. Nasiru El-Rufai

The Kaduna state Governor-elect, Mallam Nasir El-rufai, recently inaugurated a transition committee not only for the purpose of handing over from the governor that has been on seat to him on May 29, but to prepare a ground for his hitting the ground running in the governance of the state.
Chairman of the committee, Mallam Balarabe Abbas Lawal made it clear that his committee will present a detailed account of whatever the outgoing government might have left behind. Abbas also hinted that the committee will not disappoint the people of Kaduna State as whatever they will do will form the bases of the work that el-Rufai will do to turn the State into an economically and socially prosperous one.
“The burden of delivering on our campaign promises and the manifesto of our party begins right away. The people of Kaduna expect us to hit the ground running and how successful we are in the transition committee will determine the kind of progress we will achieve once the administration takes over.”
The chairman had clearly implied that Kaduna town, for all these years, has degenerated to a filthy city compared to a place like the former Ajegunle in Lagos. He was also able to raise the morale of Kaduna people that serious minded people like him and el-Rufai are on the way to make Kaduna work once again.
Lawal and el-Rufai have always worked within the same wavelength, starting from Ministry of the Federal Capital Territory. That was when Abuja witnessed a sudden transformation from backwardness to beautiful city where things worked. It is on record that el-Rufai left Abuja much more better than he met it in 2003. He left a legacy which others after him have been trying to emulate. This is exactly what Lawal and his boss, el-Rufai are out to do in Kaduna when they finally assume power on May 29, 2015.
There is no doubt, for those who knew Kaduna before, that it is now a shadow of what it used to be, especially back in the 1970’s and 80’s. There used to be good roads and healthy environment.
Kaduna has now been taken over by dilapidated houses, heaps of refuse and so on.
People of Kaduna need to pray for the success of the new administration so that Kaduna’s lost glory would be restored for the envy of other cities not only in Nigeria but outside.
Members of the historic transition committee include the immediate past Secretary to Kaduna State Government, (SSG) Alhaji LAwal Samaila Yakawada, Professor Jonathan Andrew Nok: former SSG Kaduna State and retired Federal Permanent Secretary, Mr. Charls Bonat, Alhaji Suleiman Othman Hunkuyi, Dr. Ishaku Shekarau, Senator Mohammed Sani Saleh, Professor Yusuf Dankofa, Mr. Bulus James, Mallam Uba Sani, Arc. Nasiru Aboki, Alhaji Idi Faruk, Professor Abubakar Sani Sambo and Mrs. Deborah Iliya.
