South­ern Kaduna tack­les op­po­si­tion over Buhari, El-Rufa’i

Daily Trust - - INSIDE POLITICS - From Dick­son S. Adama, Kaduna

A group un­der the aegis of South­ern Kaduna De­vel­op­ment Fo­rum has called on mem­bers of the op­po­si­tion party from the South­ern Sen­a­to­rial Dis­trict of the state, to de­sist from un­nec­es­sary crit­i­cisms and in­ter­fer­ence in the lead­er­ship style of Pres­i­dent Muham­madu Buhari and Gover­nor Nasir Ahmed

The fo­rum, which made the call at an emer­gency meet­ing in Kafan­chan at the week­end, also ap­pealed to the op­po­si­tion to stop por­tray­ing Buhari and El-Rufa’i in bad light, and ad­vised them to be pa­tient with both the fed­eral and state gov­ern­ments.

Leader of the group, Dr. Ri­kichi Ka­jang, said

elR­ufa’i. ac­tiv­i­ties of some few but vo­cal in­di­vid­u­als, will make lead­ers both at the state and fed­eral lev­els to see the en­tire South­ern Kaduna as des­per­ate peo­ple.

“Our po­si­tion is that it is too early to make judg­ment of any per­ceived dis­con­tent. If any­one is ag­grieved, there are proper chan­nels to present such griev­ances rather than re­sort to abuses and false pe­ti­tions.

“El-Rufa’i and Buhari mean good for all Nige­ri­ans and they will give us the good lead­er­ship we have been yearn­ing for,” Ka­jang said.

He ad­vised their kins­men to stop writ­ing friv­o­lous pe­ti­tions against the gov­ern­ment, stress­ing that ElR­u­fai and Buhari started well by tack­ling cor­rup­tion both at fed­eral and state lev­els.
