Baraka should be made min­is­ter - Ali Kano

Daily Trust - - INSIDE POLITICS - From Ibrahim Musa Giginyu, Kano

A del­e­gate at the on­go­ing na­tional con­fer­ence, Ab­dul­lahi Ali Kano, yes­ter­day, faulted claims that for­mer Kano State com­mis­sioner of agri­cul­ture, Dr. Baraka Sani, who re­cently re­signed from Gover­nor Rabi’u Musa Kwankwaso’s cab­i­net, is a spy planted by the All Pro­gres­sives Congress (APC) to work for it in the Peo­ples Demo­cratic Party (PDP).

He said that she is a com­mit­ted mem­ber of the PDP, call­ing for her ap­point­ment as a min­is­ter, in­stead of for­mer gover­nor Ibrahim Sheka­rau.

Ali Kano who made the clar­i­fi­ca­tion in a chat with news­men, said the for­mer com­mis­sioner has al­ways been a strong pil­lar of PDP in the state.

“We all know that Baraka has been a PDP per­son, we are also aware that come what may she will one day re­turn to where she right­fully be­longs. There­fore, those that have been enun­ci­at­ing that she is a spy in PDP are only do­ing so be­cause they failed to un­der­stand who she is.”

Ali Kano fur­ther stated that her de­fect­ing to PDP will re­shape the party in the state and also as­sist the PDP in re­claim­ing the man­tle of lead­er­ship.

He added: “How­ever, since the party has given two min­is­te­rial po­si­tion to Kano, and it has been specif­i­cally noted that one out of the two is re­served for a fe­male can­di­date, Dr. Baraka should be con­sid­ered for that post.”
