A Kaduna based group, Youth Movement For Credible Governance, has described the alleged plot to recall Senator Shehu Sani from the National Assembly as a “wasteful exercise”.
The group, at a Press Conference in Kaduna, tackled Kaduna State governor, Nasir El-Rufai for sponsoring and abating the alleged recall of Senator Sani.
The coordinator of the Youth Movement, Mustapha Aliyu said “it is therefore, outrageous that rather than commit himself to revamping the state, Governor El-rufa’i would devote his entire energy, state resources and time to a futile and fraudulent recall process of Shehu Sani that would further plunge the state into unimaginable debts.”
“Our attention has been drawn to the new vindictive and fraudulent recall process being orchestrated by the so-called ‘Concerned Kaduna Central Indigenes’ through one Aliyu Sa’idu Dan Baturiya sponsored by the Governor of Kaduna State, Nasiru Ahmad El-rufa’i against Shehu Sani, the Senator representing Kaduna Central Senatorial District in the Senate.
“It is no longer news that this latest round of drama is the culmination of the frosty relationship that exists between the domineering Governor and the fearless Senator. We are worried about this embarrassing scenario in our dear state particularly our Senatorial Zone,” he said.
He said, “What we are seeing today is Shehu Sani’s consistent insistence not to join Nasiru El-rufa’i in impoverishing Kaduna State.”
“It is no secret that since Nasiru El-rufa’i became Governor, he has plunged Kaduna State into one crises or the other in a bid to become the Emperor of Kaduna State politics.
“This did not stop him from retrenching both the state and local government workers. Many of the state owned institutions have not been performing optimally in spite of being a beneficiary of the Federal Government’s bail-out funds and also the Paris club refund to states,” he added.
According to them, “if a lawmaker must be recalled, it must come genuinely from his constituents without outside forces remotely controlling the process with state resources.”
