He called on the Senators to support the governor by joining hands with him as a formidable force to make things work in the state. “Let us look for the betterment of people we govern irrespective of political differences, don’t let your political differences affect the good thing that should happen in Kaduna State. “
I want to appeal to leaders to put their political differences aside in the interest of developing your state and the people who elected you. “On the loan, I call on the Senators from Kaduna State to join hands with their governor, Malam Nasir el-Rufai and look at the future, they should not allow their political differences to allow the state loose the opportunity on ground. “ Kaduna is the convergent State for the entire northern region, and the need to convert the huge potentials into reality is imperative. “We should all look inwards and come together as one big family in terms of our comparative advantages”. On the summit, the royal father said, “ there is the need in partnering for a better Nigeria, let us join hands to make sure that the summit will continue to yield results and not a talk show jamboree”.
